Tregothnan Great British Tea 15 Loose Leaf Pyramids Caddy


The strongest of Tregothnan’s brews, this is a truly hearty blend with a deep, dark colour.


This bespoke GREAT British Tea is created by Tregothnan for 10 Downing Street, and designed to showcase to the world the very best of British produce. The government’s GREAT initiative invites the world to trade with Britain. With this project Tregothnan celebrates the fact that tea cuts across all sections of community.

The strongest of Tregothnan’s brews, this blend is a hearty mix of Cornish tea leaves and the most premium Assam. This Great British Tea could also be described as a ‘builder’s brew’, strong enough to appeal to those who like a deep, dark colour and flavour from their tea.

Use water just off the boil. Brew for 2 to 4 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea – we recommend 3 minutes of steeping time before tasting.


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.
