Satemwa Estate in Malawi  Africa is one of our featured non-traditional regions for tea production.  Their care in picking and producing fine teas has been evident year over year.  This is one of their signature offerings a hand-processed black tea made by small producers. 

It is smooth and mellow, with notes of peach.  A close examination of the leaves shows the quality of the plucking.  We are quite pleased to have this and suggest that you try this out before it has been snapped up by other discriminating tea lovers.

 

Insider Tip: Try brewing this at 175° and compare the flavor to the traditional approach of 208° water.

Black tea, or fully oxidized tea, is made from the same plant as green and white teas, camilla sinensis, but is processed differently. Black teas are traditionally produced from one of two varietals, camilla seninsis seninsis or camilla seninsis assamica. Referred to as 'red tea' in most of Asia, referencing the color of the liquor, it is called black tea in the West in reference to the dry leaf color. In China, black tea refers to a pu-erh. Check out our selection here. Black tea can be processed to have a variety of flavors, from a sweet, smooth cup, to a more malty and bracing cup, much depends on the terroir in which the tea was grown and methods used during drying and processing. Black teas are grown all over Asian, including China, India, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, and Georgia. More recently, tea has begun to be produced in Kenya, Malawai, and other, less traditional locations.

Moderate flavor

Having been to Malawi, I want to like this tea. And the flavor is fine, with a slight maltiness and faint fruitiness, nothing distasteful. However, my sample needs more leaves than other black teas to extract the same amount of flavor, and I get only one infusion. I'll try another purchase and hope to prepare it better. I do drink my black teas with milk and sugar, as I learned to drink tea in East Africa.
