A month ago, we had introduced our exclusive Tea suppliers Birchall, support for Virunga’s national park. It was a story that had really took us back, for the readers who hadn’t read our previous blog, (https://connectvending.co.uk/virunga/).

It was an insight into Virunga and the undergoing political conflict, which has endangered the local wildlife, in particular the mountain Gorillas. The only protection comes in the form of the Park Rangers. Support and funding for the protection of this world heritage site comes in the form of donations set up worldwide through various charitable organizations. Birchall, who grow their tea in the region, have been long supporters of Virunga and we thought we would get in touch with them to find out their latest campaign for Virunga.They have dedicated two types of tea blends in honour of Virunga, where 5p will go towards the park from every sale of each pack. Birchall Virunga™ is a pure origin tea, sourced from the finest tea gardens in Rwanda, found close to the country’s border with the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Virunga National Park. In this region, the tea bushes grow slowly, at high altitude and relatively low temperatures, developing greater flavour before they are individually picked. Our pursuit of quality ensures that all our leaves are only ever hand plucked. If you would like to support Virunga whilst enjoying a nice cuppa, than look no further. The Virunga afternoon tea and Virunga earl grey are the two dedicated products, which you can purchase over at
Of course if you fancy a refreshing cup of Birchall tea before you get to the shop try the fresh tea option on any Connect hot drinks machine – it will be Birchall – it’s the only fresh brew tea we use – delicious!
