Our English Breakfast Tea is bold, malty and rich and made with the widest variety of leaves ever grown in England, then blended with the finest Assam. This blend incorporates some of the thirty-eight 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

Use filtered or bottled water just off the boil. Brew for three to four minutes depending on how strong you like your tea – we recommend three minutes of steeping time before tasting. English Breakfast Tea can be served with or without milk and sweetened with honey or sugar to taste.
