Home to the Boscawen family, Tregothnan is a rare example of a living and private estate, supporting many families and communities in a protected environment since 1334. The name ‘Tregothnan’ literally means ‘The House at the Head of the Valley’ and remains a private family home to this day
Tregothnan English Breakfast loose tea is a bold, malty and rich blend 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.
