Manuka bushes surround the tea plantations at Tregothnan to protect the tea from wind. The plant is an excellent shrubby bush for protection. The leaves are found on the estate and processed there.
Exclusive to Tregothnan, this Manuka Tea has a distinctively sweet spicy flavour. Grown at Tregothnan since it was first introduced from New Zealand in the 1800s, bees feed on this pretty bush to make Manuka honey. Manuka bushes are celebrated for their antibacterial properties used both internally and externally, and are even used by nurses to dress wounds.

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.
