What is tea made of?
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 we use to grow our tea on the in Cornwall.
The tea-producing bush has dark green, thick leaves and produces delicate white blossoms.
Picking the finest tea
The finest tea is made from the top two leaves and bud of each of the plant’s shoots. Using other plucked leaves from the sprig will produce a stronger tasting brew.
Unlike tea bushes supplied as seedlings, this plant has been nurtured from a cutting and will happily grow in the correct conditions. ’.
