African Artistry in every cup
African teas have been a staple in the humble teabags for decades, bringing warmth and joy to households across the world.However, the beauty, boldness and splendor of the unique African soil, that carries itself within a tea leaf, has been drowned by milk and sugar.
Muthaiga Tea Company ("MTC") would like to take you on a journey, to experience the uniqueness of the African terroir wrapped within a tea leaf, from the foothills of Mount Kenya to the rolling emerald hills of Rwanda, from the shadows of Mount Kilimanjaro to the valleys of Malawi.
The bold flavours of our African teas will let you experience the magic of African artistry through our unique blends, crafted from local ingredients that will bring the bountiful nature of Africa into your living room.
African teas perfected with world-class technique
We start with loose leaf African teas sourced from small-holder farmers and then our UK Tea Academy© trained Tea Sommelier uses global techniques devised to create world class teas, to bring out the flavours of the tea. We then source for ingredients that are proudly African (such as our flowers, herbs, dried fruits) and blend them with other ingredients that are used in African cuisine - from the traditional to the modern, from warrior tribes to Indian traders.
These are blended in perfect balance to ensure that the tea evokes the uniqueness of Africa- from its soil to the people's toil, from our food to doing social good. Beauty, balance, complexity, uniqueness: all in a cup, that is proudly African!
We have two major goals: encourage women entrepreneurship and promote fair treatment of workers in the tea industry.
We work with small holder farmers that seek to expand their horizon beyond selling their produce for rock bottom prices to volume production for CTC tea. We have fostered relationships with farms to exchange expertise and local know how, in order to enable the farms to develop top quality loose leaf tea. We work with farms that ensure the long term well being of their workers and comply with the local wage requirements.
Our goal is maintain the value chain of tea production within Africa by producing top quality teas that can be enjoyed by patrons worldwide.
The cold brew we make with Purple Haze is a huge hit! Love it!

We looooove Muthaiga Tea! Every tea is well thought out, every element has a role to play...
The Festive Fudge Oolong has to be one of the most soothing and comforting blends of tea I have ever tried.
