Malawi Handmade Treasure is crafted with great care to preserve the long, sturdy leaves and their complex flavors. The tea is only harvested the day after a period of abundant sunshine to achieve the right flavor profile. The tea is locally named after the cultivar used to craft it, which is in turn named after the local town of Bvumbwe.
Compared to other black teas, this tea is more lightly oxidized, resulting in a softer, smoother liquor with a subtle, sweet fragrance. The profile includes notes of baking spices, sweet tangerines and dark chocolate with the classic malty black tea flavor. Makes for a great breakfast or afternoon tea. Best taken without milk to better reveal the depth of the tea's flavors. • • •
