Our Red Berry & Flower tea is a luxuriously smooth blend of sweet red berries and refreshing hibiscus. This full flavoured red fruit tea is a plentiful source of anti-oxidants and is naturally caffeine free, so you can enjoy it at any time of day.
Our pursuit of quality ensures we have expertly balanced the sweet taste of strawberry in this infusion with the richer, distinctive notes of elderberry and hibiscus flower. It is these ingredients which combine perfectly to give Birchall Red Berry & Flower its deep, rich ruby-red liquor, lush, candied aroma and intense, fruity flavour. It really is perfection to a tea and we look forward to you enjoying it as much as we do.
Recommended Brew Time: 2-5 minutes 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.
