Product Details

Birchall Great Rift Breakfast Blend Loose Leaf Tea (1kg)

Birchall Great Rift Tea is a premium breakfast tea, expertly blended to produce a cup of tea that is bright and full of flavour. The tea originates from estates across East Africa, from Rwanda through to Great Rift Valley in Kenya where some of the world's best teas are grown. The tea leaves are hand plucked giving Birchall Great Rift tea its brightness, golden colour and a strong refreshing taste.

In this region of East Africa, the tea bushes grow particularly slowly, at high altitude and relatively low temperatures. This allows the leaves to develop a greater flavour before they are individually hand picked. Birchall Tea is never picked using machinery, ensuring that the leaf, the bud and the stem are expertly pinched together. It's this technique that results in Birchall Great Rift Tea having its golden colour and unusually bright, refreshing flavour.

The tea is packed in a large 1kg bag and is Rainforest Alliance certified.

Recommended Brewing Time: 2-5 minutes
Storage Advice: Store in a cool, dry, place away from strong aromas.

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.

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.
