Utamu Tea

Utamu Tea is the brainchild of Dr Trust Pfukwa, a PhD Food Science graduate with Stellenbosch University. The name “Utamu” is a Swahili word that means sweetness. It is therefore the mission of Utamu tea to harness unique flavours and nutritional value from indigenous South African fruits into quality and healthful consumer products. 

Indigenous South African fruits also offer an opportunity to tap into climate smart, environmentally sustainable food sources which is important for more resilient, secure and sustainable food supply. At its heart, Utamu Tea seeks to ignite in every tea lover a deeper understanding and ultimately: appreciation, of local flavours while encouraging healthy living. The company invites customers to experience the unique flavours and aromas of local fruits, long cherished by our forefathers. 

These one-of-a-kind honeybush tea blends ultimately serve you the taste of Africa in a cup!
