Tea connoisseurs know Lapsang Souchong, which is a Chinese smoked tea. Well, this is the Malawi tribute to the classical tea. In my opinion, a much better tea as the smokiness is very mild, pleasing and sweet. The tea makers in Malawi are really owning it, as they smoke the tea leaves using local guava tree leaves. This creates an amazing sweetness, and the smokiness is not by all means taking over, but adding a really interesting and delicious vibe to the tea.
Top wine sommeliers compare it to whisky-like flavors, it's a must to try!
