Our Green Tea is a pure green tea sourced from China where the very best teas of this variety are to be found. For centuries these teas have been revered across the Far East for their therapeutic properties. They are a rich, natural source of anti-oxidants, which are known to cleanse, detoxify and restore natural balance.
In our constant pursuit for quality we have expertly sourced a traditional Mao Feng for Birchall Green Tea. Its dark green leaves brighten when infused to produce a shimmering, clear, yellow colour with an initial smoothness, which evolves into the more complex, fragrant notes that characterise Mao Feng.

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.
