We’ve launched our Satemwa Malawi BOP to commemorate International Women’s Day. The Satemwa Tea Garden does fantastic work tackling gender inequality and championing women in the tea industry. This robust black tea encapsulates the qualities of that garden and showcases the amazing work they are doing investing in their communities.

Satemwa BOP Black Tea

Satemwa BOP is blend of Malawian tea varieties and produces a distinctive bright red liquor. The leaves have undergone only a short oxidization preserving the silvery tip and creating a unique flavour.

The resulting tea is a sweet, rounded cup with notes of olive. Delicious on its own or with added milk and sugar if you wish!

Satemwa Tea Estate

Satemwa Tea Factory resides in the rich and lush area of Shire Highlands of Malawai. Beyond creating high quality tea and coffee they have many programmes that are designed to raise the living standards of the surrounding communities.

They were one of the first estates in Malawi to employ women and they have strict gender equality systems in place. Women are represented in all types of jobs from tea pluckers, to field supervisors, from carpenters & electricians to the assistant factory manager. The garden is certified Fair Trade, UTA and Rainforest Alliance. 

Satemwa undersigned the Gender Equality, Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Policy from the Tea Association of Malawi. They are also proud of their robust Women’s Welfare Committee (WWC) which aims to ensure that all tea workers on Satemwa are aware of gender and sexual harassment issues and know where to report such cases.

They place great importance on empowering young mothers, with breast-feeding rooms and several nurseries on the estate. By crafting unique, orthodox teas they’re aiming to create higher quality and more sustainable jobs.

    This is a gorgeous tea. I drink the Eteaket Breakfast Blend as my main everyday tea but thought I’d try this as well as I wanted to support the gender equality aims of the producers. I’m not a fan of flavoured teas, even the other black ones, but this is a normal black tea with a lovely, round flavour and makes a good, strong ,tasty cuppa. Please keep stocking this tea!
