Either served hot or cold, it’s even better when combined with a slice of orange, ginger or a drop of honey.
How our drink hits the senses:
Whilst sitting dry in its container waiting to become your BRUU;
Soft warming aromas tingle the senses, almost fruity.
As the drink is BRUUing;
The colours unleashed in this unique tea are mesmerizing.
The taste journey;
Rich, refreshing, and fruity undertones. This herbal Hibiscus is rich in Vitamin C and is pleasantly enjoyable.
About the tea region:
Satemwa Tea Estate is the last family-owned tea estate in Malawi and is surrounded by farmland, rolling mountains and, biodiversity. All their tea is from a single estate and is directly traded throughout the world. The Msuwadzi Smallholder Tea Growers Association is a group of around 190 smallholder farmers from Satemwa. The association works closely with the smallholders in partnership to grow herbs, flowers, and other unique speciality teas. One of them is this month’s Satemwa Hibiscus.
Why we love Satemwa Hibiscus?
Hibiscus has properties that some believe are effective in treating high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and high cholesterol. People choose to complement its natural taste with a spoonful of organic coconut sugar or raw honey to sweeten it. Alternatively, you can mix it with black tea for a delicious, aromatic blend.
