Tregothnan Afternoon Tea 15 Loose Leaf Pyramids Caddy

£12.50

A delicate and refreshing tea with hints of citrus, best enjoyed around 3pm… though any time will do.

DESCRIPTION

The first tea grown in England, Tregothnan’s Afternoon Tea is hand-picked on the estate in Cornwall and blended with the Champagne of teas, Darjeeling. This afternoon tea is a light and exotic blend of unique Hand-picked leaves from Tregothnan’s Cornish estate with the finest tea from Darjeeling (Tregothnan’s twin).

Use water just off the boil and brew for 2 to 4 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea – we recommend 3 minutes of steeping time before tasting. Afternoon Tea can easily be overwhelmed by milk. If you are not used to drinking your tea ‘black’, do try it – you will be surprised by the difference.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

The Tregothnan Estate is responsible from bringing tea to Cornwall. Ornamental camellias have grown in abundance on the Tregothnan Estate for more than 200 years, making them the oldest outgrowing plants in the country. These tea bushes enjoy conditions free from salt winds and other hazards, mimicking conditions in renowned tea-producing regions such as Darjeeling in India.

Tregothnan’s camellia bushes are carefully tended by expert technicians in the plantations of the Estate. Tregothnan teas do not require large machinery to process the leaves, and the drying, chopping and sorting is all done by hand.

This tea also uses leaves from the Glenburn Estate, in Darjeeling, India. The two tea estates have worked closely for many years, and share a passion not only for the serious science of tea itself, but also a love of the whole tea experience and complementing nature. Exchange of research, tea science and tea bushes has led to strong connections being formed at many levels, and Tregothnan works with Glenburn to ensure that the best possible leaves are blended and have been grown with the same passion and attention to detail that Tregothnan itself invests in its gardens and people.

PROVENANCE STORY

CORNWALL'S GARDEN OF DELIGHTS

Cornwall’s culinary history is unique to the UK. The peninsula is surrounded by fertile fishing grounds on three sides and has a strong tradition for seafood dishes. Cornwall’s quirkier products, however, are also a result of its geography and climate. From delightful English grown teas to rich kea plum jam… Cornwall never fails to surprise and delight.
