Tregothnan is the nearly 700-year-old Estate in England and home of the first tea grown in the UK. Tregothnan tea was first planted in the family’s botanical gardens in 1999 and now produces many tons a year across the Estate, owing to the unique climate and deep sea creek of the river Fal.

A refreshing and aromatic blend of the freshest tea leaves, plucked and dried in England, retaining the greenest chlorophyll captured from the sun. The British tea is blended with China’s finest Green Tea, spicy Cardamom Pods and Tregothnan Chamomile. This revitalising blend of tea is finished with luxurious Saffron, giving it the golden glow of a Summer’s sunset.

Expectations from a tea blend could scarcely be higher. The brief for the tea blend, apart from being delicious was to deliver:

  • Hitting the ball
  • Athleticism
  • Faster horses
  • Improved personal appeal
  • Winning polo

And most importantly to help raise as much as possible to support Nic Roldan’s Sunset Polo Appeal.

Tregothnan is the leader in the UK luxury tea market and is the most premium tea brand in the UK. As a family estate Tregothnan was open to the request from Nic Roldan’s team to enhance The Game of Kings. Nic is the US polo captain and a top player in the US.

The pioneer of tea growing in the UK at Tregothnan has been personally involved in selecting the right leaves for this new blend and travelled to Florida recently to be part of Nic Roldan’s 2nd annual Sunset Polo & White Party. Jonathon Jones appears frequently in the media to explain the rapidly expanding world of tea. Jonathon says of the new and exclusive Nic Roldan’s Sunset blend that this is the most adventurous and stimulating tea blend ever. The transatlantic high society are sure to love this incredible tea and working with Nic has been a pleasure. Sample blends have been back and forth across the Atlantic to achieve the perfect finish and between the Sunset Polo Players Jonathon quickly became know as “The Tea Guy”.

Some of the fun suggestions from Polo fans were to make the tea increase the flow of Adrenaline and boost chances of meeting the right people! The Britishness of the tea is a strong characteristic and blends perfectly with Nic’s love of green tea. This accessible and refreshing green tea will appeal to even the most die-hard non-tea drinkers!

Tea is already trending as the healthy drink of choice for the new socialites. Nic Roldan’s Sunset Polo tea is a thoroughbred in every sense. The ultimate tea for the Game of the kings.

Notes:

The new tea blend is feature on the Tregothnan website and will be available on Saturday 15th April at the Final of the $100,000 World Cup Polo Championships Final at Grand Champions Polo Club.
