I want to talk about a hot drink that when drunk makes all the rain clouds go away. When something bad happens who ever said “oh no! I’ll go make you a cup of coffee.” Yeah, no one said that, ever. What they say is I’ll make you a cup of tea, that wonderful sweet elixir. Maybe I’m the only one, but I didn’t know about the massive amount of tea plantations in Africa (head hung in shame!) I found out because I came across Yswara Tea in the latest issue of Wanted Magazine (who now have a new online presence, check it out here). Swaady Martin founded Yswara Tea in 2012. As an entrepreneur, Swaady Martin “has a passion for African culture and heritage.” Yswara tea is African in origin, nature and tradition. It has become a “growing homegrown African global luxury brand.”
I want to tell you their story. It’s a story of Africa and of tea.
