Trio of Tea Bushes Gift Tray
Here’s a special offer for any keen tea lover – a fresh tea gift and the opportunity to grow your own tea at home.
All tea is made from the dried, processed leaves and buds of the Camellia Sinensis bush and Tregothnan is pleased to offer you the opportunity to buy the same plants as we use to grow our own tea on the estate in Cornwall.
This fresh tea gift comes complete with three hessian-wrapped tea bushes in our grey wooden condiment box. The baby tea bushes are 1-2 years old and are happiest spending their early years on a windowsill in the warm sunshine. Plenty of water and some ericaceous compost will see the bushes through the tricky first few years to maturity.
The tea-producing bush has dark green, thick leaves and produces delicate white blossoms. The finest tea is made from the top two leaves and bud of each of the plant’s shoot. Using other plucked leaves from the sprig will produce a stronger, tasting brew.
Complete with detailed care notes and a message card if required.
