Some people find it hard to believe, but itís true. Tea is now being grown in England. Itís happening on the Tregothnan Estate in Cornwall, where tea is now being grown and manufactured.
Cornish micro climate

Itís all down to the micro climate of Cornwall. Surprisingly, itís very similar to the climate in Darjeeling. Even more surprising, the minimum temperatures in Cornwall are a few degrees higher than the minimum temperature in Darjeeling. Thatís why itís become the first tea growing region in the United Kingdom. Tregothnan first planted ornamental Tea over 200 years ago.

I'd like a cuppa, but i hope it will be marketed as tea from Cornwall, and not English tea.

 Random Information. 
 For many Cornish people and Cornwall, the Duchy, as shown by the Officers of the Duchy of Cornwall in 1855 in its dispute with the Crown over the ownership of the Cornish Foreshore, has quite a different significance, based on the original Acts and Charters of its creation. Cornwall itself in this framework is described, de jure, as a Duchy (as opposed to an ordinary county), and the Duchy estates are distinguished from the Duchy itself, having themselves been annexed and united to "the aforesaid Duchy". The Duke of Cornwall may even be described as Cornwall's head of state.
