A rare English peppermint grown on the private botanical garden of the Tregothnan Estate. This truly remarkable and unique peppermint is a wonderful end to a meal.

This peppermint is grown in Cornwall on the Tregothnan estate which has remained in the same family since 1335. It is one of the very last English mints in production. Cheaper, industrial imports have dominated the market but they are not a patch on the flavour. Head gardener Jonathon Jones has selected cultivars that perform best in their unique Cornish microclimate.

Naturally caffeine free.

This peppermint tea is the perfect amount of minty-ness that is refreshing and particularly good after a hearty meal.

Tasting Notes

Counter-intuitively, the menthol oils infuse more easily from the dried leaf, giving a brighter, cleaner flavour than fresh mint.

Quantity

Use 0.02oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water (0.5g per 150ml).

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 212°F (100°C) water.

Time

Infuse for 30 - 60 seconds, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse these herbs at least three times. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

6¢ per cup based on 0.02oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water and 3 infusions.

Origin & Craft

The belief in doing things well has persevered at Tregothnan; the Estate has stayed within the same family since 1335.

At the heart of the Estate is the private walled Botanic Garden. Tregothnan is passionate about growing and collecting plants, including many rare specimens.
