8th November 2012
Jonathon Jones will be hosting 'Tea Takes on the World' at School Cottage on the Tregothnan Esate on Thursday 29th November.
The beautiful Wild Escape property will be transformed into a 'Tea School,' where we are inviting a limited amount of people to attend the day event to learn more about the world of tea.
The day will begin at 10am with an introduction on Britain's tea history and future, how and where the Camellia sinensis grows, and the manufacture of teas.
There will then be a walk to the new plantation at the Himalayan Valley plus an exploration of the herbal tea gardens at Barn Close.
Lunch will be a delicious Cornish feast of local delicacies including pasties and cream teas.
The afternoon session will focus on the story from bush to cup, the differences in loose leaf and tea bags, tea and health, perfect brewing, and why men need to 'man up' and drink more tea!
The day will conclude with a forum and tea tasting certificates will be rewarded.
Priced at £99 per person. You can book online here.
