Great Rift Breakfast TeaSpecial Blend
- Region:Great Rift Valley, Kenya
- Type:Black Tea
A deliciously strong breakfast tea bursting with flavour, recently winning the highest accolade at the 2015 Great Taste Awards. Birchall Great Rift Tea is a unique English Breakfast blend, produced through five generations of Birchall Graham’s family.
It is sourced exclusively from estates across East Africa, from Rwanda through to the Great Rift Valley in Kenya, 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 Pfunda Tea Estate is widely regarded as Rwanda’s leading tea estate and is situated in the north-west province of the country, 4 hours drive from the capital Kigali, in an area known as the Congo-Nile Crest, above Lake Kivu and below the Nyiragongo Volcano.
