YSWARA is a refined African Teatime brand, offering a collection of fine teas, infusions and teatime accessories. The brand is the first to offer a curated experience of fine and artisanal African teas.

YSWARA was born in the rich stories of our ancient heritage. It is inspired by the golden city of old Timbuktu where, inside the walls of the great libraries, men and women of learning would gather among tomes of knowledge to share thoughts and ideas. Here, they also shared a warm, aromatic brew, a skillful blend spiced with the timeless, soaring spirit of their land.

Today, Yswara’s ingredients are gently nurtured by African farmers whose connection to the soil is as ancient as the continent itself, each blend created by our founder Swaady Martin, each ingredient and tea carefully hand-selected and blended to create distinct harmonisations of scent and flavour in a union of african refinement and heritage. Each tea is a treasure rediscovered, each a precious manuscript with its own tale of antiquity.
