Satemwa is a family-owned estate, located in Malawi country in the southern part of Africa. This place is the motherland of the first commercially grown tea in Africa since 1878. This exact tea comes from a family, who has produced tea since 1923. Passed through generations, expired by eastern tea cultures, adapted to local conditions, and refined to perfection, this tea farm can offer a wide variety of different styles of high-quality teas. Tea plantations used for the production of this unique artisan lineup are more than 50 years old. All these plantations are 100% organic and all the teas are handmade.
As mentioned earlier, the tea is completely handmade, which preserves its integrity and beautiful appearance. The tea consists of mature leaves, which guarantees a deep, rich, multifaceted taste. The aroma of dry tea leaves has sweet, fruity, berry motifs, with an overriding plum note. The warmed tea leaves continue with woody, fruity notes that only become brighter and stronger after the first rinse.
The taste is soft, sweet, deep, with honey and fruity notes. The tea gives a clean, beautiful dark amber infusion color. It has a soft, silky texture with a long sweet aftertaste. The tea performs well both in the Chinese tea ceremony and in the Western method of brewing with long infusions. A wonderful red/black tea and a strong representative of handcrafted African tea.
