Satemwa Estate in Malawi 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 unique offerings- a green tea. The production method is different from traditional Chinese and Taiwanese practices. This is steamed to halt oxidation. It seems to preserve the vibrant interplay between layers of fresh vegetal notes, and a lingering citrus sweetness.

Green teas are unoxidized and processed by withering or wilting, followed by pan-firing or steaming, then a shaping process. During the shaping processes, further drying takes place, giving each green tea a distinct shape, character, and flavor. Often shaped by hand in places like China or Vietnam, the skill to craft these teas is passed down from generation to generation. In Japan, most of the tea processing is done mechanically, using machines and conveyor belts to steam, shape, and cool the teas.
