Afternoon Tea Loose Leaf Caddy 50g
Our Afternoon Tea is a delicately refreshing blend of hand-plucked Tregothnan leaves and the finest Darjeeling.
A light and exotic blend of unique tea leaves from our Cornish estate with tea from Darjeeling (Tregothnan’s twin, renowned for creating ‘the champagne of teas’). Quintessentially British, our Afternoon Tea is delicately refreshing with invigorating citrus notes.
We think it is best savoured around 3pm (with a Cornish cream tea, of course!) – but it is equally as delicious at any time of the day.
A delicious blend of hand-plucked Cornish Tea from Tregothnan and the finest Darjeeling Tea from the gardens of India. This tea is dairy free, gluten free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Afternoon Tea can easily be overwhelmed by milk. If you are not used to drinking your tea ‘black’, do try it – you will be surprised by the difference.
For perfect brewing, add your desired amount of loose leaf tea into the metal infuser of the teapot – we recommend a heaped teaspoon for each person and an extra spoonful for the teapot! Place the infuser into the teapot.
Infuse for 2 to 4 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea – we recommend 3 minutes of infusion time before pouring. Whole leaves take a little longer to brew, but the short wait is well worth it.
Remove the infuser – the leaves will have expanded to three times their original size. If you would like further cups once the teapot is empty, simply replace the infuser with the same tea leaves and add more water.
