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 Earl Grey tea is one of its signature blends, using only the best bergamot oil – pure and natural oil from bergamot orchards in Calabria, Italy. Tregothnan’s home grown leaves are blended with the Assam and infused with the oil.
This Earl Grey is made famous by Tregothnan’s family connection to Sir Charles Grey, the pioneer of this fine English brew. The tea leaves and bergamot contain antioxidants which can help to keep the immune system healthy.
Each box contains 21 individually sealed Classic Tea bag sachets for maximum freshness.
For a perfect cup, use freshly boiled water and steep for three to four minutes.
