Afternoon – 250g Loose Tea
Quintessentially British Afternoon Tea with a delicately refreshing taste with invigorating citrus undertones. We think Afternoon Tea is best savoured around 3pm (with a Cornish cream tea, of course!) – but it is equally as delicious at any time of the day.
Light and exotic blend of unique hand-plucked leaves from our Cornish estate with the finest tea from Darjeeling (Tregothnan’s twin). Quintessentially British, our Afternoon Tea is delicately refreshing with invigorating citrus notes. This tea is dairy-free, gluten-free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Use filtered or bottled water just off the boil, and brew for 3-4 minutes. Whole leaves take a little longer to brew, but the short wait is well worth it.
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.
How true these words from Henry James are: “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea” – Portrait of a Lady.
