Delicious on both steepings

Robust full-bodied flavour which I enjoyed without milk. Surprisingly flavoursome on such a short steeping: I’m used to waiting three times as long with supermarket bags for a brew that is dominated by acrid tannin. Happily Not the case with Lost Malawi, first brew has a refreshing earthy tone and the second a fresher taste. I enjoyed it!

Lost Malawi

I finished this tea yesterday, and loved it. It has a very distinctive aftertaste which I liked. A lovely tea, refreshingly different. I must order some more. Thank you for making it available. All the best. Clive

Refreshing first thing in the morning with loads of subtle flavours. I could never go back to a tea bag after this

Lovely tea

As with all the teas I have bought from Rare Tea this one is beautiful. I will never go back to teabags again.

A very special tea

I have found this to be an exceptional tea, full of flavour with surprising subtlety. It has become my tea of choice in the morning. The aroma on opening the tin is almost intoxicating. I drink it black and enjoy a second and sometimes even a third brew from the original pot.

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 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 85°C (185°F) water.  If you like milk, please use water at 100°C (212°F).


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

16p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.
