Life changing tea!

My morning ritual (and usually the afternoon as well) is something I eagerly await each day! I used to be a big Tazo fan and while it is a nice tea in a bag - It doesn’t hold a candle to Rare Tea’s earl grey! Loose tea is just that much better and Henrietta clearly scours the earth to find loose tea of the highest quality.

Smooth blend

A great, round blend with a bit too strong bergamot flavour.

Origin & Craft

The belief in doing things well has persevered at Tregothnan; the Estate has stayed within the same family since 1335.

At the heart of the Estate is the private walled Botanic Garden. Tregothnan is passionate about growing and collecting plants, including many rare specimen sand this passion is the inspiration for cultivating the first ever English Estate Tea.

Seven years of trials have been undertaken to achieve this tea, one that really deserves every accolade. It's one of the best Earl Greys we have encountered.

The rare English Tea leaves are blended with some of the finest Assam and flavoured with real bergamot oil, Citrus Bergamia.
