Great Rift Breakfast Blend
Birchall Earl Grey Tea is a unique, masterful blend, closely guarded by the fifth generation of Birchall Graham’s family. Our teas are sourced entirely from estates across East Africa, from Rwanda through to the Great Rift Valley in Kenya, where the very best teas are to be found.
Our pursuit of quality ensures that all our leaves are only ever hand plucked. The leaf, bud and tender stem are carefully pinched together in a ‘perfect pick’ and subsequently blended with a traditional Bergamot oil to give a distinctive flavour of citrus, with spicy floral notes.
This scented black tea includes:
Tea: Traded in compliance with Fairtrade Standards, total 99%.
Weight – 250g
Recommended Brew Time: 2-5 minutes Storage Advice: Store in a cool, dry, place away from strong aromas
Our Earl Grey 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.

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.
