Manuka Loose Leaf – 250g
Our Manuka loose leaf tea in 250 grams can make well over 200 cups of tea. Exclusive to Tregothnan, Manuka has a distinctively sweet spicy flavour. Grown at Tregothnan since it was first introduced from New Zealand in the 1800s, bees feed on this pretty bush to make Manuka honey.
Pure English Manuka leaves grown on the Tregothnan estate in Cornwall.
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.
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.
Serve our Manuka loose leaf tea without milk.
Manuka tea benefits from Tregothnan
Manuka bushes are celebrated for their antibacterial properties used both internally and externally, and are even used by nurses to dress wounds. Why not brew yourself a cup of Manuka next time you need to soothe a sore throat?
As featured on BBC’s Countryfile with James Wong, Lynda Bellingham’s Tasty Travels on ITV, and picked by Hugh’s Hungry Boys on Channel 4, our Manuka tisane is sometimes likened to Rooibos or Honeybush from South Africa.
