Our Black Single Estate Tea has been ranked in the very TOP tier of tea in the world by Epicure in 2020. This exquisite and rare single estate tea is made exclusively from our finest leaves plucked from the first tea gardens in the UK.

Brewing instructions

Infuse at 80ºc in filtered or naturally soft water. No milk or other additions required to taste but this tea is incredible, adaptable and complements a great range of other ingredients in the cup if you wish to experiment. Tregothnan honey is a particular favourite. Re-infuse the leaves as many times as you choose, the record is 12 infusions, equating to 12 cups of tea from 3 grams.

Tregothnan’s unique microclimate

The most British tea in history is grown on the banks of the 18-metre deep sea creek six miles inland from Falmouth. The tea thrives in a true microclimate in conditions similar to Darjeeling. In fact, Tregothnan often enjoys warmer temperatures than the famous tea regions of India. A delicious, light and rewarding tea for anyone and a real Cornish tea for connoisseurs.

The first pure English Tea

Many of the tea bushes now producing the finest teas made their way from China in the 1840’s via Darjeeling, finally reaching the Tregothnan Estate, Cornwall in 1999. After six years of growth and development, we were able to produce the first commercial tea grown on English soil in 2005.

Bought as gift

I was very happy with the ease of use of the website and service when buying the single estate tea as a birthday gift. I cannot comment on the tea itself as said birthday is a few more days away.

About us

Rare plants have been nurtured by the same family at Tregothnan since 1334. The first tea was grown in the UK in 1999 to put the ‘English into English Tea’ and the most British tea in history was first sold in 2005.

Now, over 26 miles of tea bushes thrive in the unique microclimate, seven miles inland and with a deep-sea creek bringing regular fog. Manuka bushes have also thrived here since the 1880’s, the first grown outside of New Zealand and producing the most delicious honey.
