Perhaps too delicate

Classical pu’er colour but sadly rather too subdued an aroma and palette for my liking.

Comfort in a cup

I like this tea so much. I reach for it on dreary, damp days more than any other time. It feels like the embodiment of a walk in a wet forest while providing warmth at the same time. It's earthy and comforting and just what I need in the autumn and winter especially.

Rainfall in a Cup

This is some tea, the description is spot on. It tastes like an Autumn rain. Lovely, light, nostalgic, grounding, beautiful. Unlike any tea I've ever tasted.

Silky Malawi pu erh

This elegant and smooth pu erh from Malawi is what keeps me coming back to Rare Tea Co time and again. This unique tea has the depth and complex flavor one would expect of a pu erh but with a silky sophistication that makes for a gorgeous brew. A good choice for both lovers of pu erh and those looking to try it for the first time. Added to that is the fact that it's sourced from Malawi, an absolutely rare gem of a tea.

Malawi

The Satemwa Estate

We expected to find our ideal Pu'er in China. But whilst visiting the extraordinary tea garden of Satemwa in Malawi, Henrietta tried a Pu'er so soft and yet so deep in flavour, she was astounded.

What they have crafted on Satemwa is something so uniquely complex and yet beautifully clean.
