Tregothnan’s new Spitfire Tea is a celebration of the brave men and women who protected our skies since the first RAF planes flew 100 years ago. The iconic Spitfire plane is a symbol of British strength and valour. On 1 April 2018, the Royal Air Force will be celebrating its 100th birthday. To mark this occasion, we have blended this bold, malty English RAF 100 tea – Spitfire Tea, using our homegrown leaves from our Cornish tea plantations. This commemorative tea raises money for the RAF Benevolent Fund who have been supporting the RAF family since 1919. This robust Spitfire Tea is the kind of brew that would have kept our troops hydrated and motivated for action. Set on the banks of the River Fal from which the D Day landings embarked in 1944, Tregothnan shares a great history with the RAF.
