Our strongest tea blend, our Great British Tea can be likened to a builders brew. Specially blended as part of the Governments GREAT initiative, this full bodied blend of Tregothnan leaves and Assam is made for export.


A blend of Tregothnan leaves grown in Cornwall and the finest Assam from India.

Brewing Instructions

To brew a cup of Great British Tea, use freshly boiled water cooled to approx. 95°C and infuse for two to four minutes. Our boldest tea can be drunk with milk.


Tregothnan was invited to 10 Downing Street in 2012 to launch an exciting tea product in connection with the government’s GREAT initiative which invites the world to celebrate the very best of British produce.

GREAT initiative

The government’s GREAT initiative invites the world to trade with Britain and we export this quintessentially British tea globally.
This bespoke GREAT British Tea designed for Downing Street by Tregothnan honours the fact that tea cuts across all sections of community and just about defines what makes us British.

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.
