Bird & Blend Tea Co specialises in loose teas in unique flavours, which includes; their best-selling fruit tea Strawberry Lemonade, autumnal blend Bonfire Toffee and many more.

To celebrate the launch of their Newcastle shop, Bird & Blend Tea Co have launched a special edition tea dedicated to Newcastle, named Newcastle Tea on the Tyne. 

The tea is a smoky breakfast blend inspired by the coal mine at the foot of the Angel of the North, with red peppercorns to reflect the rusty red colour of the iconic landmark.
