My favourite tea of all time

I recently tried another tea as my default breakfast brew: what a mistake. This Lost Malawi is my go-to tea to get up to - or even later in the day if I want a calming cuppa. Well-balanced and flavoursome, I heartily recommend it.

Lost Malawi

I first discovered Lost Malawi tea a few years ago and I have now come back to it after becoming bored and disillusioned with commercial teas/blends. This tea is rich, dark and sweetish with an almost smokey depth. With milk it becomes malty and strong, just the thing to get you up in the morning. Good quality tea is not often available, but is so different when you find it. I don't drink tea in restaurants/cafes any more!

Beautifully Balanced

This is my new favourite tea, and I probably enjoy it as much as I do a nice glass of ale these days! It has rounded malty notes and an underlying caramel character, with a great depth of flavour, but with no astringent tannins. Whilst of course quite expensive, it is worth the price for the enjoyment that the tea brings ,alongside the fact that you know that this product has been sourced sustainably, and direct from the grower, so that they receive a fair price for their great efforts.

So delicious!

This tea has such a wonderful flavour, malty and biscuity, and it makes a satisfying second brew … it’s my new favourite!

Lovely English Breakfast Tea from Malawi

I bought this tea from Waitrose. An excellent tea from Malawi. Clear cut taste, earthy, slightly sweet aftertaste. No need for milk. A tea for all occasions.

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.


The Satemwa Tea Estate
