Great British Loose Leaf Tea Caddy 50g
Tregothnan was invited to 10 Downing Street to launch an exciting new tea product in connection with the government’s GREAT initiative which invites the world to take a fresh look at everything Britain has to offer.
No prime minister has taken tea this seriously since Churchill or Earl Grey. Churchill wanted tea grown in the UK and 70 years later, the first and only home-grown tea is being delivered to Embassies where the GREAT campaign is running.
This bespoke GREAT British Tea designed for Downing Street by Tregothnan celebrates the fact that tea cuts across all sections of community and is almost in our veins. Tea just about defines what makes us British – why not try it for yourself today?
This tea is our strongest black tea and is a special blend of hand-plucked Cornish tea with the finest Assam for a bold full-bodied flavour. This tea is dairy free, gluten free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Depending on how strong you like your tea, 50g of GREAT British Tea will make 5-6 pots and can also be reinfused.
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 at least 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.
