A constant pursuit of perfection has been instilled in Birchall Tea through five generations starting all the way back in 1872, over 140 years ago. The origins start with Captain Birchall George Graham, who was posted to India as an officer with the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment where he served admirably for 18 years.
In 1872 he decided to return to India a land he had grown increasingly fond of over his time spent there, joining his brother Robert Fuller Graham. He cleverly used his savings to make a living by planting tea in Darjeeling.The seeds of a tea dynasty were planted and today they are one of the largest exporters of East African tea in the world!
This award winning brand only uses the best leaves of the highest quality to make their blends, and we’re so happy to have them joining us again for the Hampshire Coffee Festival.
