Tregothnan Teas...

12 August 2009

...bring a true taste of England to the Maritime Museum

Tregothnan Estate, is internationally known for its fine 'English Estate' products grown and produced with a sustained passion on Tregothnan land on the Roseland Peninsula and on Wednesday 12 August from 11am – 3pm, they will be demonstrating their beautiful Cornish teas and infusions at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall.

Previewing their new ‘Tregothnan Tea’ range of 10 teas and infusions, their teas, picked from the camellia sinensis plant, will be infusing the Museum’s galleries, seducing the taste buds of the nautical visitors.

Jonathon Jones, the Director of Tregothnan says: “The belief in doing things well has persevered for many centuries at Tregothnan: the Estate has been home to the same family since 1335.  We’re passionate about growing and collecting plants, including many rare specimens and this passion is the inspiration for our range of ‘English Estate’ products and experiences.

“Being able to share our passion and knowledge and give a flavour of what Tregothnan offers as a tea supplier at the Maritime Museum will hopefully spread awareness of the incredible high quality tea Cornwall is able to produce.”

And, with chocolate mint, pineapple mint, green, afternoon and earl grey teas to name a few, you’ll have to make time for a ‘cuppa’.  To enjoy the ‘Tregothnan Tea’ experience for yourself, pop down to the Maritime Museum on 12 August between 11am and 3pm, for a very English summer day out.  Boats and tea – could it be more British?
