African Dark is a leaf pu'erh from the Satemwa Estate in Malawi, Africa. It is produced in the modern style (cooked vs aged) resulting in a rich, earthy, and woody experience.
Established in 1923, the Satemwa Estate in southern Malawi produces both coffee and tea. The plantation employs a large number of people in the region and has numerous community programs including a health clinic, a program for community policing, sporting activities, and even runs a primary school with about 900 students.
