In 2014 through a DIFID and UN supported Malawi Innovation Challenge Fund project, we helped to 

establish a group of smallholder herb growers. We have been providing extension services to these and new growers ever since and buy their herbs to sell as pure lines or to blend in to our teas. 

Although perhaps sacrilege to the purist we have, it is a great way to introduce or re-introduce people to tea and a great way to extend the functional food aspect of tea. 

We are always looking out for new herb lines to grow and are continually trialing new things. Get in touch if you are looking for something specific.

Grown by smallholders

in the area around Satemwa tea estate.

Leaves give an intense fresh lemon taste and the cup is clean and bright.

A family favourite..
