This African white tea from the Satemwa estate in Malawi is made from a Malawian cultivar with a high proportion of Camellia Sinensis Assamica. It is grown at over 1,000 metres above sea level in the Thyolo highlands.

Its processing method draws inspiration from Chinese Bai Mu Dan: after plucking, the leaves are allowed to wither for four days, developing a strong grassy and fruity aspect. This rare variety will give you a fresh perspective on white tea.
