Green & White
Tregothnan Jasmine Green Tea
Tregothnan green Camellia sinensis leaves are lightly oxidised, dried and blended with jasmine flowers and China’s finest green tea leaves. Our satisfying green tea is from the same type of bushes as those from which Green Tea was first discovered in China.
Tregothnan’s Earl Grey Tea
You wouldn’t believe it (but it is true), the owner of Tregothnan, Lord Falmouth is the eighth great-grandson of Earl Charles Grey, the very same for whom this tea was created! Cornish-grown tea leaves and the finest Assam are infused with pure Bergamot oil.
Tregothnan’s English Breakfast Tea
Our English Breakfast Tea Pyramids are bold, malty and rich made with the widest variety of leaves ever grown in England, then blended with the finest Assam. This blend incorporates some of the 38 different varieties of Camellia sinensis that were gifted to Tregothnan from growers across the world at the end of the last millennia. When tea growers from Vietnam, India, Malaysia and China heard about our British quest to be the first growers of tea in the UK, bushes were sent in celebration of this momentous and pioneering undertaking and planted in the experimental section of Tregothnan’s tea gardens.
Tregothnan’s Lavender Black Tea
Lavender grown along the Cornish Riviera (also known as the Fal Estuary) is infused into a blend of Cornish and Assam teas. Delicately flavoured and reminiscent of the English summer.
