The World’s Largest Tea Chest stacks up for The Royal Cornwall Show

Our famous Tregothnan tea chests are now officially recognised as the largest in the World! Our tea chest is a firm favourite at the Royal Cornwall Show where last week we served over 3,000 cups of British tea from Tregothnan, and many of those with a scone and cream on the side…

The RAF Falcons parachute display team, pictured above with our foliage-filled Spitfire aeroplane, wowed crowds around the arena with their daredevil display, and then dropped into see us for a cup of Churchill’s Finest tea afterwards.

The Royal Cornwall Show, which ran from Thursday 9th until Saturday 11th June, was also a great success for the Tregothnan Driving Friesian Horses – our horse and carriage pairing who entered into three classes at the show. Prizes were scooped in Private Driving, Concourse D’Elegance and the Cornish Class where we were placed 1st, gaining the overall Best Exhibit in the Championship.

The Cornwall Community Foundation joined us at our stand opposite the main arena, as Tregothnan raises awareness for the charity through the Royal Cornwall Show and makes a donation from the proceeds of the Show to help fund the community projects they are involved in.
