Malawi Black - Loose Leaf

Straight from the Shire Highlands of Malawi, we bring this chopped, torn, and curled black tea that is rich in flavor with astringent notes, but overall a smooth finish. Lighter than the Rwanda Black, but similar in flavor profile, this one is great for a midday tea, or with breakfast. It welcomes cream and/or sugar, but by no means needs it.

This is a single-estate tea from the Satemwa Estate in the Shire Highlands. It's a 3rd-generation independent tea & coffee estate established in 1923.

Brewing Suggestions

  • Use 7g (≈2 tsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz) of water.
  • Use boiling (100°C/212°F) water
  • Steep for 3 minutes, strain leaves, and enjoy!
    • Like milk in your tea? Steep an extra minute!
    • Too strong? Take off a minute, or use 5g of leaf instead!
    • Too light? Kick it up another minute, or use 10g of leaf instead!
    • Wanna do a tea latte?
      • Use 10g (≈1½ tbsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz).
      • Steep 2 minutes in ¼ liter (≈8 oz) boiling (100°C/212°C) water
      • Add ¼ liter (≈8 oz) hot milk, steep another 3 minutes.
      • Strain leaves, add sugar if you like (5g or 1 tsp usually does it), and enjoy!
