Bird & Blend's Award Winning Teas
Bird & Blend's House Blend - The classic English Breakfast tea
What the Great Judges had to say: 'There are some brisk flavours and it does take milk well.'
Perhaps our most loved blend ever: Autumn Spiced Pumpkin Chai!
Great Judges: 'The dry spice is of good quality. The tea comes through well, and the spice delivery is light and gentle. It's a well made chai, clean and with no astringency.'
Smooth chocolate chai loose leaf blend that packs a chilli punch!
Our original honey Sticky Chai
Great Judges: 'The flavour is delicate and the taste is good. The balance is great and it does exactly what it says on the tin. A soothing warm milk drink, perfect for a cold winter's evening.'
Spiced gingerbread chai tea!
Our Christmas best seller: Coconut, Chocolate + mini marshmallows!
Great Judges: 'There are some good cacao notes. It develops nicely with a lengthier infusion.'
Inspired by a creamy Irish coffee!
Great Judges: 'How interesting - this tea really smells like an Irish coffee!The blend is really works. It's fun, but tastes good too..'
Blueberry bliss twisted with notes of peach!
Great Judges: 'An amazing vivid purple liquor, clear and bright...Very well balanced flavours on the palete. The peach comes through first and the blueberry is subtle but complements the peach. Very enjoable.'
Calling all space cadets... dreamy lemon + lavender!
Great Judges: 'A lovely shiny orange liquor, clear and bright.'
Get a healthy kick start every morning with our zesty yerba mate tea. An energy boosting tea with lemon and ginger.
Great Judges: 'Lively citric nose that’s encouraging and properly promises what you will get, which is something delicious and stimulating. Mate makes it an original choice in the overcrowded field of lemon-ginger infusions. Excellent to see the quality of the natural ingredients.'
Our caffeine-free breakfast blend with a hint of honey - fab with milk!
Great Judges: 'A very attractive blend, the sunflower petals make a wonderful contrast to the other ingredients. There's a subtle sweetness from the honeybush that helps lift this tea.'
Apple & cinnamon rooibos perfection in a cup.
Great Judges: 'Delicious, warming and welcoming nose. Tastes just like an apple strudel and gives a delightful clean and gratifying experience, enhanced by the gentle sweetness of the stevia. A great surprise and an excellent balanced blend.'
A fresh & fragrant vanilla Earl Grey tea
Nostalgic aniseed, star anise + liquorice herbal tea blend.
Great Judges: 'Truly original and delicious infusion that packs a true punch of the stated ingredients. Some might like lesser chilli but it’s not over the top by any means. Another brilliant combination and at last a mixture that’s blokey.'
Fantastically fruity tea infusion that tastes as good as it smells!
Cherry and almond white tea, a classic tea time treat!
Great Judges: 'Big on the almond flavour, but some tartness comes through along with good sweetness. We also noted hibiscus flavours and also something of the white tea character.'
Turkish delight tea with magical rose + creamy cocoa
Great Judges: 'Delightfully aromatic rosebuds, with a beautiful aspect. There's certainly a Turkish Delight element to the aroma of the infusion. On the palate, there is an interesting cacao note, which takes the edge off the powerful rose scent. The use of lemongrass is subtle, just brightening the sweet rose aromatics. We feel this is a successful and clever blend.'
Tangy rhubarb tea, creamy custard guilt free sweet treat
Great Judges: 'Good dark amber colour as should be expected from a Rooibos. Innovative. Rhubarb flavour is good and a little 'custard ' flavour. Fairly balanced ,rounded and comforting.'
Velvety milk Oolong tea, smooth cocoa + sweet peppermint
White silver needle tea with spiritual spearmint + heavenly jasmine.
All the super powers of matcha BUT with caffeine free rooibos tea!
Great Judges: 'Cloudy amber infusion, good rooibos aromas on the nose. On the palate it is very good, gently tangy, straw and citrus notes. An honest, quality infusion, a very pleasant, comforting drink.'
Caffeine free, Rooibos flavoured matcha honey
Great Judges: 'There's excellent Rooibos here and a good honey base. An unusual product certainly but we feel it's a successful, harmonious blend that affords positive excitement of flavour.'
Great Judges: 'There are clear flavours of vegetal matcha (with allied bitter notes on the finish) and good British 'eucalyptus' honey notes. We rather like the preserved lemon notes, but do feel we have a somewhat 'confused' product here. We feel it might work well as a Chai base, blended with milk. On the basis of rather bright, distinctive flavours, even if rather startling as a concept, we are happy to raise this to star level.'
