Rich Pu'er

Our first tea blend from Malawi will unfurl in your cup with notes of mystery, familiarity and a whole lot of African stories about the dichotomy of Africa –of the Rich and the Poor.

This blend is created from Pu’er tea or a ‘dark tea’ from a 3rd generation family tea estate, from the Shire Highlands of Malawi and is blended with
cardamom & dried papaya and sprinkled with gold flakes. Each ingredient evokes a story of Africa – of a working rural farm, of our spice trading heritage, of
gold mining or of afternoons eating juicy fruits.

This tea is a perfect digestif after a heavy meal, and also pairs beautifully with desserts
such as cheesecake and chocolate cake.
