Not familiar with Devonshire Tea? Not surprisingly we are big fans here at Foodies South West (well, they are donating a prize to our competition after all).
The cleverer among you will have noticed that tea is not native to Britain. But Devonshire Tea is in the finest tradition of British commerce – taking something foreign and putting our own twist on it.
Devonshire is a specially chosen blend of teas. The result is a silky smooth blend ideal for any occasion.
In their own words:
‘In an ideal world, we would love for “Devonshire Tea” to be grown in Devon, although unfortunately the fact is the UK climate is not conducive to growing tea in anything like the volumes we need to satisfy the demand for “Devonshire Tea”.
‘The vast majority of the tea consumed around the world is grown between the two “tropics”, and when searching for the perfect blend, we had several key factors in mind, and “boxes” that had to be ticked:
“Devonshire Tea” is our own unique blend of selected leaves of the highest quality from four “Fair Trade” and “100% Rainforest Alliance” estates in the Kenyan Highlands.’
Because of these perfect conditions and total lack of pests that usually attack tea plants in other major Tea Growing areas, “Devonshire Tea” is pesticide free.
It has taken us a long time to source the perfect leaves to create the perfect blend that we feel reflects “A Taste of Devon”, although the effort was well worth it and we are sure you will be delighted with the blend we have created.
There you have it.
