Lost Malawi comes from Thyolo Mountain in the Shire Highlands of Malawi.
You can see a short film about the tea and why its so special here:
This is a single estate tea grown and lovingly made on a farm called Satemwa . It’s not a modern industrial blend churned out by vast machines. Lost Malawi is an old fashioned tea crafted in small batches with great care. It has a depth and quality almost forgotten. Like all good crops the leaf is seasonal – picked only when the tea bush is at is best. For this reason there is only a limited supply.
Strong and satisfying, Lost Malawi is the perfect Afternoon Tea . Delicious with milk and sugar, it is also wonderful on its own. To compare this to an ordinary afternoon tea blend would be like comparing a line-drawing with a sculpture. This is like drinking tea in 3-D.
Lost Malawi is 100% Fairtrade tea.
Part of the money you spend goes on providing the local community with fresh water, adult education and solar power as well as scholarships for orphans.
My very first thoughts of this teas were…Strong, Burly, and Bold! Darn hefty, even! This is Rich and Awakening! It has masculine and earthy flavors within, too! I thought it was a Fantastically Bold Brew, indeed! I really liked this one right away but after trying it again I liked it even more! It’s a perfect morning cuppa! It’s earthy but bold and dark! A goodie for sure!
