Rare Malawi Tea

This rare tea comes to us from one of the original tea estates in Malawi, founded in early 1920's. The production for these elaborate beads first begins in the field, through extremely careful harvesting. Young tea leaves are then placed gently onto a plate, so as to keep them flat and unwrinkled. When withered and smelling like honey-sweet white tea, the leaves are gently hand-rolled into little olive-hued cocoons. After several infusions, the cocoon opens, tea leaf wings unfurling like a fragrant butterfly. The cup is sunshine yellow, with a buttery sweetness, enchanting toasty and floral notes, and smooth, savory flavor.
