Northumberland tea is sourced from producers who strive to improve the welfare of their workers and families. We use crops from the best plantations in Kenya, Ceylon and Assam, picked at the perfect time to ensure great quality and taste. The most prevalent tea is 60% Kenyan, followed by 30-35% Assam, with about 5-10% Ceylon.
The reason for the fluctuation in the amounts of Assam and Ceylon depends on the time of year, and as both these areas are subject to the Monsoon (which stops EVERYTHING), we have to carry stock to maintain the quality of Northumberland Tea during times of difficult production.
Many household-name tea bags contain reducers - poorer quality tea - to reduce costs and increase profits but Northumberland Tea is produced without reducers.
