Bird & Blend was set up and is run by Krisi and Mike, who met whilst studying Politics (of all things!) at university. Starting off packing tea in their bedroom and attending markets, building Bird & Blend from scratch while staying true to our ethos and values has been Krisi and Mike’s passion. Now with an awesome team, multiple retail stores & a thriving international online store, Bird & Blend is leading the way in tea innovation in the UK.
Things We Care About
Our TEAm is just as important as our tea! Our blend of treating people fairly and doing business in the right way is the recipe for a successful company and happy customers.
Sustainability has been at the heart of our business from day one. From leaf to cup, every part of your tea’s journey is carefully designed to minimise the impact on our planet.
Since we launched our ChariTEA Programme in 2014 we have supported over 30 worthwhile causes, each nominated by a team member. So far we've donated over £24,108 to charity.
Proudly part of a passionate communiTEA of tea lovers & indie businesses. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do & you’ll always find us championing other indies we love!
The magical world of tea
We are tea blend experts, creating exciting flavours by mixing incredible blending ingredients including herbs, flowers, fruits, caramel, chocolate... & even cake sprinkles!
Tea is our TEAm’s passion, so whether you’re browsing our website, chatting with us on social media or popping into the store, we’re here to share the joy of great tea.
turning teas into trees
For every takeaway cup* that we use in any drink across our stores, a tree is planted through a donation to the World Preservation Fund. So far we've planted nearly 40,000 trees, and counting! Click to read more. *All of our cups, straws & lids are plastic free & biodegradable too!
£24,108.49 raised for ChariTEA & counting
Every quarter, we choose a new ChariTEA close to our hearts. They choose a blend that reflects them or what they support & we donate the profits of the blend to their cause! Click to learn about this month's ChariTEA: Mind Manchester

what our Communitea has to say...
“What a wonderful company this is. Colourful stocks of tea, quirky and practical tea accessories. Fast, efficient service with some wonderful humour to boot. Cannot fault this lovely business :)”
Mrs Thomas, Trustpilot
“This company has some of the best customer service I've ever seen. The deliveries with handwritten notes saying hi, the fast delivery and their free samples of the super delicious tea they make is fab."
“These guys are wonderful, with such amazing quality teas. I ordered online and mentioned I am a medical student. They gave me a free box of tea to share with my team on the wards. Thank you Bird & Blend!”
Psst, weren't you called Bluebird Tea Co.?
Yes, we started life out as Bluebird Tea Co. but in May 2018 we evolved our name to Bird & Blend Tea Co. We won't bore you with the long version (if you'd like the full story click here) but long story short, we are the same fab people, same awesome tea blends, just under a different name!
