YCE is always seeking out the best producers in the Industry and we're very excited to introduce Birchall Tea to our webshop range.
We consider Birchalls award-winning speciality signature black teas to be truly special and unique. They 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 result is a cup of tea that is bright, delicious and bursting with full flavour.
Birchall tea is a family-owned London tea company with roots in the trade dating back over 140 years to 1872, when Birchall Graham first planted tea in India. Birchall is the only independent UK tea company to handle tea at all levels of the supply chain; from point-of-origin through to point-of-sale. Today Birchall is one of the largest exporters of East African tea in the world, buying and shipping millions of kilos of black tea from this continent every year.
