This tea comes from Malawi's Satemwa Tea Estate plantation in the Shire Highlands, where several small-scale producers collaborate. This tea is inspired by Chinese tea production methods, with an Oolong tea utilizing a distinct soil and cultivar. This delectable oolong tea reveals a whirlwind of honey, cooked fruit, peppery, and vegetal aromas against a finely astringent texture.
