Birchall is a family-owned tea company, based in London, with roots in the trade dating back over 140 years. The company specialises in single origin and blended black teas from East Africa and its Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance Certified teas are served daily on every major high street across the United Kingdom. Since 2011, Birchall has won 56 gold star awards at The Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste Awards and its signature Great Rift Breakfast Tea has received honours for 9 consecutive years.
Birchall Tea has become the first tea company in the world to officially join the UN’s Climate Neutral Now Initiative, which invites organisations to work towards global climate neutrality by addressing their own climate footprint.
The British tea company has also become the first in the world to achieve the Carbon Neutral International Standard, which they obtained by measuring and offsetting their greenhouse gas emissions, supporting verified volunteer reforestation projects around the world. This means that all of Birchall’s products – including its award-winning Great Rift Breakfast Tea – are now completely Carbon Neutral.
