Product Description:

Lost Malawi comes from Thyolo Mountain in the Shire Highlands of Malawi.
You can see a short film about the tea and why its so special here:

This is a single estate tea grown and lovingly made on a farm called Satemwa . It’s not a modern industrial blend churned out by vast machines. Lost Malawi is an old fashioned tea crafted in small batches with great care. It has a depth and quality almost forgotten. Like all good crops the leaf is seasonal – picked only when the tea bush is at is best. For this reason there is only a limited supply.

Strong and satisfying, Lost Malawi is the perfect Afternoon Tea . Delicious with milk and sugar, it is also wonderful on its own. To compare this to an ordinary afternoon tea blend would be like comparing a line-drawing with a sculpture. This is like drinking tea in 3-D.

Lost Malawi is 100% Fairtrade tea.

Part of the money you spend goes on providing the local community with fresh water, adult education and solar power as well as scholarships for orphans.

Tasters Review:

My very first thoughts of this teas were…Strong, Burly, and Bold!  Darn hefty, even!  This is Rich and Awakening!  It has masculine and earthy flavors within, too!  I thought it was a Fantastically Bold Brew, indeed!  I really liked this one right away but after trying it again I liked it even more!  It’s a perfect morning cuppa!  It’s earthy but bold and dark!  A goodie for sure!
