Birchall Tea in Enveloped Bags 25pcs - English Breakfast
Birchall English Breakfast Tea is a unique, masterful blend, closely guarded by the fifth generation of Birchall Graham’s family. Their teas are sourced entirely from estates across East Africa, from Rwanda through to the Rift Valley in Kenya, where the very best teas are to be found.
This is how Birchall English Breakfast Tea gains its exceptional brightness, golden colour and strong refreshing flavour.
Why East Africa Produces The Best Black Teas
We consider our signature black teas to be truly special and unique in the tea world and we’d like to tell you why. Our black teas are all sourced exclusively from the finest tea estates across East Africa, from Rwanda through to the Great Rift Valley in Kenya; this is generally considered to be where the very best teas are to be found. This equatorial region’s altitude, high rainfall and rich volcanic soil provide the ideal conditions that are integral to growing tea of unparalleled flavour and taste.
The geography and climate of the area where this tea is grown makes it uniquely placed to produce black tea of unparalleled flavour and taste. This equatorial region’s altitude of 1460-4500 metres above sea level, high rainfall and volcanoes along the Congo-Nile Crest provide the ideal conditions and rich soil that are integral to growing outstanding tea.
The tea bushes grow high above sea level, at a slower rate, where the temperature is relatively low, developing greater flavour before they are individually hand picked. The estate provides valuable jobs for people in the area and also runs a co-operative for over 2600 farmers.
This breakfast blend includes:
- Black Tea
Tea: Traded in compliance with Fairtrade Standards, total 100%
English Breakfast Tea can be enjoyed anytime but we particularly enjoy it mid morning when you fancy carving out a small but precious moment for yourself in between your busy schedule.
