Quality is everything for Shutelake Coffee. For this reason, we have paired up with Birchalls as our sole tea supplier.

Producing the highest quality teas since 1872, Birchalls has a rich heritage and passion for creating perfect blends which is reflected in their award-winning collection of teas and infusions.

Through five generations of family, starting with Birchall Graham, the pursuit for perfection continues to be the mantra the company lives by today.

By not compromising on quality at any stage of the creation process, they are confident that every single cup of Birchall tea is absolutely perfect every time. Birchall’s signature black teas are all 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.

Like my coffee, by selling Birchalls Tea there is a certain exclusivity to it. Birchalls do not sell to the mass market, therefore you will not find the same tea you are selling on your local supermarket shelves.

The tea we offer comes in many formats from Loose Leaf to paper tagged, to biodegradable prism, to tagged and enveloped. We have a solution to most forms of service.
