Ah...Satemwa tea.

The tea is simply wonderful. I grew up in Malawi, as a missionary kid. Even then, 45 years ago, there was something special about tea from the Satemwa tea estate...but this tea is now genuine sterling. Thanks for delivering it to my doorstep so stylishly.

A parade of delicious flavors

This tea brings a thrill of joy with its delicious flavors. I bring a cup of this for my boss when he has to open the store Saturday mornings and his eyes always light up and he says "Mmmmm, that is goooood!". And it is only one of our favorites from The Rare Tea Company

Robust flavor for any time of day

Tea is a more relaxing way to begin the day than coffee. Malawi Breakfast Tea is robust enough that I don’t miss my cup of coffee first thing. When I’m at home in the US I drink tea black, but I expect the flavor of this tea would come through very well with milk. Sugar is going too far, though, even though I now live in the land of sweet tea (iced). I spent my early teens in Southern Rhodesia of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, which was my first experience with the daily 4:00 pm ritual. The tea was from Malawi, then Nyasaland, so there are probably some ancient memories working their into my enjoyment.

A nice cup of tea

This is a lovely afternoon tea that you can have with cookies or a cucumber sandwich. It’s a mild black tea; not very malty. It’s very smooth, an easy drink with milk and sweetener (I use Stevia). It tastes like it does better with a little refined sugar, very little. It’s not a tea to get you going in the morning. It’s a tea to drink after a Saturday of shopping to refresh you, to calm you; to drink quietly with closed eyes, forgetting everything for a little while. This is truly the “nice cup of tea."

My favorite black tea!!!

I am sad I can seldom drink black tea as I really love this. Oh In the days of my youth!

Tasting Notes

Deep, rich and malty, it has notes of caramel and burnt sugar. Delicious black, becoming sweet and chocolatey with the addition of milk.


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. If you like milk, please use water at 212°F (100°C).


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

22¢ per cup based on 0.09oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water and 2 infusions.


The Satemwa Tea Estate

Grown and lovingly made on a farm called Satemwa on Thyolo Mountain in the Shire Highlands of Malawi. Satemwa is the oldest tea estate in Malawi, still run by the same family - Alex is the 3rd generation Kay to look after the garden.
