The Tea

Affectionately named "cricket tea" by Team Tealet, Satemwa's Zomba Pearls are a unique, hand-rolled white tea. Each pearl is created by first harvesting a whole, full leaf set, then painstakingly rolling the leaves into a tightly-wrapped pearl. After hand-rolling, the pearls are carefully dried in the sun.

The tea is truly a labor of love; Satemwa's skilled, dedicated tea workers devote a lot of effort to craft this tea, and because the tea is sun-dried, Zomba Pearls can only crafted in a limited span of time, on clear and sunny days.

The pearls unfurl beautifully in hot water. The leaves yield countless infusions, with flavors unfolding and developing with each steep. This flavor profile is quite complex and fascinating to explore; the tea also matures well over time, and is well-suited to aging.

Zomba Pearls are crafted with Satemwa's "Zomba" cultivar, named after the nearby town of Zomba. This cultivar tends to yield buttery, velvety, and lush teas, like Zomba Pearls and Satemwa Tea Estate
