Mind your ‘Teas’ and Q’s – Fit for a Queen

This week we went in search for truly English Tea. Thanks to the unique micro-climate that benefits the South-West corner of England for the success of our tea plantation; the same climate that makes Cornwall the garden capitol of Europe.

Tregothnan draws on almost 200 years of experience in growing Camellias and has been producing tea since 2006 when the best-selling Classic blend was created. Today, the range extends to four black teas including our exclusive Single Estate, one green tea and a growing list of home-grown herbal infusions. The Classic Tea tastes wonderful and comes beautifully packaged.

It's strong in colour which is something we always look out for – weak tea just doesn't tick the right boxes. This is a fabulous brand and producers of great quality teas. They really have put the 'English' back into 'English Tea'.  

Try yours from Tregothnan.co.uk or purchase from Amazon.
