A bright and satisfying breakfast tea that’s caffeine free yet bursting with full flavour. A winner at the Great Taste Awards and Rainforest Alliance Certified™.

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.

Great Rift Decaf contains tea that is fully Rainforest Alliance Certified.

This product is 100% Carbon Neutral and what’s more, all our loose leaf tea pouches are biodegradable which means they can be industrially composted. For full information about Sustainability and this product’s packaging please see below.

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.

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.

To further our commitment to making the communities we are part of stronger, we support sustainable projects in these areas and charitable causes across East Africa.
