This whole flower Hibiscus is grown by smallholders in the area of Malawi grown between 950-1200 M above sea level. The same tea estate that grows the African White Pearls have grown a close relationship with these farmers. From this relationship they formed Malawi Innovation Challenge Fund Project to help establish this group of smallholders for herbs. This Hibiscus truly is more then hibiscus but a way to have a sustainable life for these smallholders.

African Farmers Harvest Tea

The Impact from Your Purchase

When you purchase African Hibiscus you are actively helping this family operated tea estate which is one of the last standing. The rest were bought by large corporates. This tea estate plays a big role in the community providing 5 clinics for free and assistants who check on the communities general health. They also provide scholarships to about 120 kids with RARE CHARITY. Reforesting every space and corner of the land and supporting smallholders is their passion.

To top things off every purchase plants one tree in efforts to help with reforestation.

Thank you for your support.
