The Satemwa Estate
A small, family run tea garden in the Shire Highlands of Malawi.
These leaves taste even more beautiful than they look.
It has taken some years to find a way of shipping this White Peony from the Shire Highlands of landlocked Malawi to Britain - preserving the fragile beauty of these whole leaves. It has been worth our every effort.
Like the Malawi Antlers this tea comes from the same unique varietal of Camellia sinensis. It is the particular and peculiar varietal from certain fields on the Satemwa estate that produce this wonderful tea - quite unlike any other.
The leaves are painstakingly handcrafted to retain the most sublime flavours.
