Tasting Notes

Made with slightly cooler water at 85°C and enjoyed without milk, the leaves reveal beautiful apricot notes with robust, precise tannins just at the front of your mouth. Burnt sugar and a hint of bright lemon combine with subtle hints of pumpkin seeds, tangerine and Kalamata olive.

Made with water at 100°C and with the addition of milk this whole leaf black tea evokes an apricot tarte tatin with a dollop of double cream. You won't find the deep colour and the rich maltyness of Lost Malawi - this is an altogether more fruity, sweet and elegant tea.


Use 0.09oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water (2.5g per 150ml).


For the optimum infusion use 185°F (85°C) water. To take with milk, please use water at 212°F (100°C). We recommend trying both!


Infuse for 90 seconds if having black, or 2 minutes if having with milk.


You can infuse this tea at least twice at 185°F, and once at 212°F. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

44¢ per cup based on 0.09oz of tea per 5.1 fl oz of water and 2 infusions.

The whole leaves that compose this blend of loose leaf black teas were all hand plucked with great care from different fields and harvests across the Satemwa Estate. The teas were delicately handcrafted by skilled men and women before being blended by our Tea Lady, Henrietta to create a delicious expression of Satemwa's magnificent terroir.
