  • Malawi Bvumbe Peony White Tea Loose leaf white tea

    Hey, tea-huggers

    My origins are the YAMBA project smallholding, part of the family-owned Satemwa Tea Estate in Malawi’s fertile Shire Highlands. I am proud to be organically farmed without pesticides, among corridors of indigenous flora and fauna that enable wildlife to cross freely. I also pair beautifully with a health-conscious lifestyle.

     

    Ingredients: Large, whole Bvumbe Peony leaves (30G - 75 cups).

    Flavour: Light yet buttery, sweet and delicate.

    Aroma: Complex, intoxicating frangipani perfume.

    Health benefits: By nature, I am kind to your liver, kidneys, heart and general sense of well-being.

  • Breaking tradition

    I’m from Bihar, India, where tea was not traditionally grown. In the ‘90s, tea farmers were invited here to boost the economy. My plantation, the Doke Tea Estate, was one of the first. It soon began offering teas – like me – with a fruity aroma and refreshing flavour unique to the lush terrain.

    I’m farmed alongside the Doke River, where I’m shaded by trees with anti-microbial properties – no pesticides or herbicides required!

     

    Ingredients: Fresh, young needle-shaped buds covered in a delicate silvery down. (30G - 60 cups).

    Flavour: Delicately sweet, creamy and full-bodied with hints of peach blossom and dried apricot.

    Aroma: Ripe stone fruit and fresh straw.

    Health benefits: I’m kind to your liver, kidneys and heart.

  • Hey, tea-huggers

    My leaves are sourced direct from smallholders on the Satemwa Tea Estate in the Shire Highlands – one of the last family-owned tea farms in Malawi. I’m grown and harvested in a way that does not encroach on indigenous plants, insects, micro-organisms or wildlife.

  • Harvested high in the mountains

    My leaves are grown and hand-harvested in small batches by Neelamalai Organics – a family-run farm in the Nilgiri Mountains. My birthplace is famous for its high altitude, fertile volcanic soil and monsoon rains, which have contributed to my exceptionally smooth and fragrant flavour.

      Cultivated according to traditional Indian techniques, I am 100% organic and true to nature. Every leaf is plucked carefully by hand, immediately dried using renewable sources of wood, and processed gently to preserve my unique qualities.

Here, I’m cultivated with respect for nature with no pesticides or herbicides.

    A complex tea with a simple story

    I have layers of flavour and uncomplicated origins: I’m sourced direct from two small tea gardens and blended by Beleaf & Co. My soothing rooibos comes from the only place in the world where this fynbos plant grows naturally (Cederberg, South Africa). My warm, zesty chai hails from a nature-loving tea and spice farm on the banks of the Doke River (Bihar, India).

     

    Ingredients: Rooibos, Cinnamon, Ginger, Cloves, Bay Leaves and Green Cardamom. (50G - 25 Cups)

    Flavour: Sweet, spicy and subtly wooded.

    Aroma: Fresh wood and honey with a bouquet of spices.

    Health benefits: I’m gentle on your digestive system and boosts your sense of wellbeing.

    Grown with love for land and sea

    Named after the scent of my flowers, I’m pure honeybush (cyclopia longifolia) – a fynbos plant and not strictly a tea. Years ago, people made “blommetjiestee” (flower tea) from the honeybush, but now I’m harvested before I blossom for the best flavour. I grow organically along the Garden Route in areas where I add value to the coastal ecosystem. Once plucked, I’m gently fermented and processed to retain my flavour and healthy-giving properties.

     

    Ingredients: 100% honeybush.  (50G - 25 Cups).

    Flavour: Fruity and woody with delicate, naturally sweet notes of honey.

    Aroma: Undertones of wood and honey.

    Health benefits: They say I boost the immune system and lessen inflammation.

    True to nature

I’m a soothing, fragrant blend of rooibos that grows wild in the Cederberg and honeybush that’s cultivated organically in coastal ecosystems along the Garden Route.

     

    Ingredients: 100% rooibos blended with pure honeybush. (50G - 50 Cups).

    Flavour: Delicately wooded, sweet and fruity with bright red berries and cedar.

    Aroma: Undertones of wood and honey.

    Health benefits: I help to protect your heart and am also a rich source of calcium.
