  1. Great piece Dan.
    Lovely to see some proper focus on Satemwa’s unique range. I really admire their creation of uniquely local teas forged out of Thyolo’s plant material and climatic conditions rather than trying to replicate Northern Hemisphere speciality teas.
    Thanks for bringing Alfred Mwase’s skills to a wider audience.

  2. A significant salute to the innovation of the Kay Family and their local expert team at Thyolo.
    Putting Central Africa squarely on the map of world tea quality! Well done and thank you.
