Our Camomile tea is a classic herbal tea made from the scented flowers and leaves of the wild camomile plant. Camomile has long been prized for its relaxing qualities and is believed to restore natural balance by aiding digestion and promoting sleep. A single cup of our smooth and soothing herb infusion helps you unwind, making it perfect in the evening just before bedtime.
Our pursuit of quality ensures we only select the finest, whole camomile flowers and it is these that give Birchall Camomile its delicate floral character, clear gold colour and mellow, sweet taste.
Recommended Brew Time: 2 minutes Recommended Brew Temperature: 100° Storage Advice: Store in a cool, dry place away from strong aromas
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. 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.
