When explorer David Livingstone first set eyes on Lake Malawi in the late 1850’s, he described it as a “lake of stars” and remarked on the surrounding land’s incredible suitability for agriculture. Our exquisite Malawi Black Tea exists because of his adventure.
Grown for almost a century on a historic plantation established just to the south of where Livingstone first laid eyes on the glittering expanse of Lake Malawi, this tea—like the British pioneers who coaxed it out of the virgin African soil—was fundamentally transformed by the essence of wild Malawi. Be careful. It might transform you as well.
“If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don’t want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.”
– David Livingstone
