It is always a little sad for me to reach the end of a delightful variety of tea that I know I am unlikely to get hold of again. Today it was the turn of my box of Tregothnan Tea, a gift from England. Well, of course it would be – it is called GREAT BRITISH TEA after all!
The tea grown in England is an interesting by-line for that is an unusual image – tea-growing being associated with China, Sri Lanka, India and even Africa. According to the information leaflet inside the box, the tea is grown near Truro in Cornwall and the Boscawen family have been supplying England’s first and only tea since 2005.
It is a pleasantly full-bodied tea, more malty than English Breakfast Tea, which makes a refreshingly satisfying drink. If it were readily available in this country, I would certainly purchase another box. It is interesting to note too that the sale of this tea benefits the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.
