Teas of UK & Europe From around the world

No one knows for certain when tea first arrived in the UK. We do know that is was popular as early as 1660 and that it was Catherine Breganza of Portugal, wife of King Charles 2nd, who helped to promote “taking tea” in to a popular pastime.

Later, around the 1800’s, Anna, Duchess of Bedford, came about the idea of having Afternoon Tea  between lunch and dinner in order to stave off hunger – the tradition grew and is still very popular in hotels and tea shops around the country today.

Although the vast majority of tea is grown in warmer climates, there is one UK estate in Cornwall called Tregothnan that grows and manufactures tea. There are also a great number of herbs grown within the UK and Europe – these are often drunk straight or blended and/or scented to create fruit or herbal infusions
