      Malawi Tea - The Lost Malawi English Breakfast Tea (loose-leaf) by the Rare Tea Company is a hand-crafted black tea from a small, independent estate in the Shire Highlands - the oldest tea estate in Malawi and still family-run. The deep, rich, malty notes of caramel and burnt sugar make Lost Malawi the perfect breakfast or afternoon tea. 

      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.

      Tea:  This is not a modern industrial blend churned out by vast machines. Lost Malawi Tea is an old-fashioned tea crafted in small batches with great care. It has a depth and quality almost forgotten. 

      Single Estate Varietals:  Like all good crops the leaf is seasonal - picked only when the tea bush is at its best. The tea is blended from different varietals and harvests across the estate to build a great depth of flavor and rich complexity.
