Great Rift Breakfast Blend
Black Teas, Decaffeinated Tea, New Arrivals
Our Great Rift Decaf is a decaffeinated* breakfast tea, expertly blended by the fifth generation of Birchall Graham’s family. In order to produce a cup of tea that is caffeine free, but bright and full of flavour, we have expertly sourced the finest selection of estate grown teas from across East Africa and the Great Rift Valley.
Our pursuit of quality ensures that all our tea leaves are hand plucked before they are carefully decaffeinated and this gives Birchall Great Rift Decaf its exceptional brightness, golden colour and strong refreshing taste. It really is perfection to a tea and we look forward to you enjoying it as much as we do.
This blend includes:
*Caffeine content less than 0.2%
Weight – 250g
Our Great Rift Decaf tea can be enjoyed anytime but we particularly enjoy it in the evening when you are winding down after the busy day and spending time with the ones you love.

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.

i discovered this by accident in the cafe’s of Aberdeen’s two biggest parks – Duthie and Hazelhead. For several years I had been searching for a decaf tea that actually tasted good and here it was, best of all in the prism bags but quite acceptable in the ordinary. So I buy both and use the prisms for that daily ‘special’ cup. So good and deserving of much more praise
