Malawi Leafy Ripe Dark Tea



An earthy and clean tasting, light to medium bodied dark tea which is comparable to a shou pu-erh.

Possibly the only African dark tea, produced utilising similar methods to those of a shou pu-erh, but with the unique Satemwa twist.

Sourced direct from Satemwa Tea Estate in Malawi who are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of great tea production while caring for the local environment, providing their employees a fair wage and contributing to the local community.
