This smoked tea comes from the Satemwa plantation in the Shire Highlands, in southern Malawi. It is unique because it is smoked with guava leaves. Alexander Kay, the producer, used the leaves from the surrounding area of his plantation to make this tea.

This rare and atypical smoked tea is characterised by the smoking of guava tree leaves. It develops unique notes with a distinct woody hint.
