  • Full Description

    Brought to life in the Shire Highlands of Malawi by a family-run business, the process behind this exquisite tea is one that has been fine-tuned over three generations.

    The base tea is made using a traditional black tea process, using a blend of three varietals to highlight sweetness and body. The Thyolo Moto tea is then lightly smoked using leaves from a Guava tree to give your cup a subtly smoky taste. A favoured route for those searching for a gateway smoked tea, that is milder on the palate.

NUMEROLOGY

The traditional process used to bring this tea to life sees it lightly smoked using leaves from a Guava tree. We’ve numbered it in honour of the glorious guava fruit, of which there are 150 varieties.

MALAWI

In the local Chichewa language of Malawi, the word “moto” means “fire”. A fitting tribute, then to name this warming, lightly smoked tea after its African roots.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
