From Harney & Sons

This unique tea comes from the Satemwa Tea Estates along the slopes of the Shire Highlands in South East Africa. Malawi Black Treasure is made from an endemic Malawian varietal high in antioxidants and L-theanine, the Bvumbwe cultivar. Satemwa was founded in 1923 and is currently the last family-owned and operated tea garden in Malawi. All tea from these estates is hand-picked and produced in small batches. Tasting different Satemwa teas will give you a great insight into the typical Malawian terroir.

Random impulse purchase! I was restocking on some fruit tisanes from Harney and was intrigued by this new tea. It’s reasonably priced and the leaves are big and twisty, plus I haven’t had many Malawian teas.

It definitely reminds me of an Assam, it has those raisin and molasses/brown sugar notes to it and a touch of astringency. Apricot or plum fruit leather and tobacco are present as well, and a hint of floral on the back end. I don’t know if I would order more, since I’m not really an Assam drinker, but it’s enjoyable and I’ll happily sip through the tin. Plus it’s fun to try new things! :)
