This native African spearmint was one of our most unusual finds. From the rolling green hills of the Shire Highlands, Malawi, it is grown by smallholders alongside the Satemwa Tea Estate, helping supplement the incomes of local families.
Like all our herbs and teas it is grown without herbicides or pesticides, beside a small river beneath the tea fields.
This is Flora, one of our smallholder farmers who grows and harvests our spearmint.
