Dormouse and the Teapot are eagerly looking forward to their annual monthly tea-break in July. We are even more excited to discover that some of us are to visit the homeland of the England's very first tea plantation - Cornwall !
Tregothnan Tea first started making tea on the banks of three rivers near Truro in Cornwall in 1999. The company says it has succeeded in creating the ultimate quality leaf in conditions superior even to those in Darjeeling, home of the world's most famous tea. The tea comes from a special form of Camellia sinensis.
If you fancy doing the taste test with us you can buy a caddy or two online at http://www.kernowharvest.co.uk/ and watch out for our review.
