A round mouthfeel with notes of rich cream, milk chocolate and maple syrup with subtle hints of apricot and peaches. Best enjoyed without milk.
Coming from the same Satemwa Estate as our "Lost Malawi" Single Estate English Breakfast, this is a single varietal black tea that has been meticulously hand-rolled. The tannins in this whole leaf are extremely low, allowing a remarkable sweetness for a black tea.
Whole leaf, no flavourings
This a pure tea without flavourings. We feel that adding synthetic fruit flavours to tea is a bit like adding them to wine. It is completely unnecessary unless you are trying to mask poor quality leaves. Truly great tea has a great wealth of flavours inherent in the leaf. This is a tea to be truly savoured and wonderfully complements buttered crumpets.
