Black tea (Mozambico)

Mozambique was the second largest producer of tea in Africa until the 1960s when Malawi production overtook Mozambique and thereafter Mozambique lapsed into a long running civil war which laid waste to the tea industry and infrastructure. Since the end of the civil war some production resumed on a smaller scale with renovation of gardens and factories. This black tea is cultivated at the Monte Metilile Estate on the lower slopes of Mount Namuli, yielding a velvety smooth, dark amber liquor that is rich and full-bodied. A warm toasty aroma and dark sugar sweetness contribute to a satisfying cup with a substantial mouth feel and lingering finish.

Perfect with rice, vegetables and steamed fish, or melon
