Tea connoisseurs know Lapsang Souchong, a Chinese smoked tea. Well, this is the Malawi tribute to the classical tea. 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!
