During this difficult time we have taken the decision to operate online only as of today. Our shop will be shut for the foreseeable future until the government deems it safe to do so. Our online shop will be running however, so you can still get our delicious teas! We will only be processing orders on a Monday and Thursday so please be patient. Once the threat of Covid-19 has passed, we will be happy to open again as normal. See our facebook page for more regular updates. We urge all of our customers to stay safe and stay at home. This isn't goodbye, just TEA you later. Thank you to all our customers and those who have helped us along the way.
Stay safe, Frances and Sam, Birchley's Loose Leaf Tea
Due to Covid-19 concerns, Birchley's Tea would like to assure our customers that we take this matter very seriously. We already take precautions when it comes to public and personal hygiene, as such we are following government advice on what extra we can do. You as our customers are very important to us, without you, there would be no us! So if you can't get into the Market because you've been advised not to, don't worry, we're still able to take orders online and post them to you. As such, we've dropped our minimum order value for free postage to £15.
In regards to our stocks of tea, information from our suppliers is that they are robust and shipments are still coming in from tea plantations. There is no need to stockpile tea (although that is totally the British thing to do!) Our business is very small and we would love to keep selling you our tea now and forever. So please, if you have questions regarding our business during this difficult time, send us an email and we'll do our best to answer you.
