Tasty tea

Delicious aroma and colour when ***** without milk. You get that instant tea satisfaction with the first sip.

My favourite breakfast tea

Wonderfully rounded with the perfect strength to start my day. I now travel with it as everything else is disappointing in comparison (not to mention being in a bag!)

Great flavour

No I am not a tea drinker apart from green tea which I have a generous supply as my daughter lives aboard and the school children gift it to her as presents. I purchased this for my husband and he loves the flavour. First discovered this in waitrose then they stopped selling it but now I have discovered the rare tea company who provide excellent tea and great customer service. What's not to like. Have tried other flavours and am just as pleased with the flavours and quality.

I bought this to make with my home made chai that I love making during colder weather. It's perfect, robust & clean perfectly suited for Chai.

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!

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.
