Product Details

Birchall Fairtrade English Breakfast 1 Cup Tea Bags (Bag of 1100)

Birchall English Breakfast Tea is a masterful blend of black teas sourced entirely from estates across East Africa, from Rwanda through to the Rift Valley in Kenya. This is where the very best teas are to be found. In this region, the tea bushes grow very slowly, at high altitude and relatively low temperatures, developing greater flavour before they are individually picked. Birchall tea is only ever hand plucked, the leaf, bud and stem are carefully pinched together in a ‘perfect pick’. This is how Birchall English Breakfast Tea gains its exceptional brightness, golden colour and strong refreshing flavour.

Each bag contains 1100 teabags, each bag making one perfect cup of tea.

Additional Information

Estate Grown Teas from East Africa

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.

East-Africa1

The Pfunda Tea Estate is widely regarded as Rwanda’s leading tea estate and is situated in the north-west province of the country, 4 hours drive from the capital Kigali, in an area known as the Congo-Nile Crest, above Lake Kivu and below the Nyiragongo Volcano.

“East Africa is one of the largest tea exporters in the world.”

Pfunda concentrates on producing the finest tea, focusing on quality not quantity. The very best tea bushes are carefully selected for the estate and the saplings from these are grown in the on-site nursery. When the nursery manager judges them to be ready they are taken out for planting.
