In the heart of Silvermist Constantia Farm, a unique and harmonious event unfolded, blending the beats of African drumming with the delicate flavors of iced tea. This extraordinary experience not only immersed participants in the rich history of African drumming culture but also tantalized their taste buds with a curated selection of four exquisite teas.
The rhythmic heartbeat of the African drums echoed through the picturesque surroundings, setting the tone for an unforgettable event.

The beats resonated not just in the air, but in the souls of those present, creating a powerful connection to the roots of this ancient art form.
As the drumming continued to weave its spell, attendees were treated to an equally enchanting tea-tasting experience. The Silvermist Estate, known for its commitment to quality and sustainability, presented a carefully curated selection of four teas, each telling its own story.
The first tea, an aromatic Rooibos and citrus blend, transported participants to the vast landscapes of South Africa where this indigenous herb has thrived for centuries. Its earthy notes and natural sweetness provided a perfect harmony to the drumming rhythms, creating a sensory journey that engaged both taste and sound.
Next on the palette was a refreshing Mint Tea infused with local herbs. This blend not only delighted with its crisp taste but also served as a reminder of the diverse botanical wonders that surround Silvermist Constantia Farm. The combination of rhythmic beats and herbal essence left an indelible mark on the senses.
The third tea, a bold and robust Chai, carried participants to the spice-laden markets of Africa, infusing warmth and complexity into the atmosphere. Its intricate flavors complemented the intricate drumming patterns, creating a symphony of taste and rhythm that captivated every participant.
The grand finale featured a Berries and Black Tea blend, delicately balancing the palate with its subtle notes. As the event concluded, attendees found themselves not only invigorated by the drumming but also enlightened by the diverse world of tea, each cup a gateway to a different facet of Silvermist Estate’s natural bounty.
In the harmonious intersection of African drumming and iced-tea tasting, Silvermist Estate crafted an experience that transcended the ordinary. This event not only celebrated the vibrant cultural heritage of Africa but also showcased the farm’s commitment to sustainability and the art of blending flavors. It was, without a doubt, a symphony of senses that will resonate in the memories of those fortunate enough to attend.
