Malawi Satemwa Zomba Green tea is grown at an altitude of 3770 feet in the Zomba District of Malawi. The Satemwa garden is unusual in that it is still family owned. The large, brown-green twisted leaves have been steamed soon after picking to stop oxidation. This method is inspired by Japanese techniques and the tea has a fabulous kelpy, grassy character that you will love. In the cup the liquor appears pale yellow-green. On the palate this smooth, vegetal tea has notes of spinach but with citrus notes. Use one teaspoon (three grams) per cup with freshly drawn and boiled water that has cooled to around 80 C. and infuse for three minutes. You will find that you will soon be brewing a second pot!

The benefits of loose leaf tea
Malawi Satemwa Zomba Green enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!
