A quintessentially British combination – loose tea and biscuits – makes the perfect British gift. This elegant gift box contains two of Tregothnan’s most British teas – the Great British blend made for 10 Downing Street to celebrate the unique capabilities of British soil, and Tregothnan’s Earl Grey Tea made by the descendants of the Earl Grey himself. Lord Falmouth, the owner of Tregothnan is, in fact, the seventh Great Grandson of Sir Charles Grey, the man responsible for the citrus deliciousness of the bergamot oil blend.
Great British Tea is often likened to a builders brew and is the strongest of these teas. This is due to the higher content of Assam which offers a strong and malty flavour.
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 celebration of British teas gift set is finished off with Housekeeper’s Biscuits, made from a tried and tested recipe developed by the Tregothnan housekeepers.
