Fancy That sells tea actually GROWN in England

Our latest press release!

Tregothnan Tea GROWN in England now for sale in the USA
by Fancy That

Walpole, Massachusetts. Fancy That, a rental company offering rentals of vintage English china and glassware, and purveyors of flavoured tea, imported jams, tea bread, broken china jewelry and beautiful gifts and accessories is pleased to be an authorized retailer of Tregothnan Tea. It is the only tea grown in England.Tea comes from a plant called Camellia Sinensis: Tregothnan was first to grow Camellia ornamentally outdoors 200 years ago.

Tregothnan likes to say that they are putting the “English” into English Tea. It was proven that high quality tea thrives in certain places on the Tregothnan Estate in Cornwall England. Translated from the Cornish language 'Tregothnan” means 'The House at the Head of the Valley” and the beating heart of the Boscawen Estate is the Private Botanic Garden. In addition to being England’s first tea plantation, it is also the only English location for manuka honey production. The Boscawen Family has lived at Tregothnan since 1335. The Tregothnan Garden is the home of English Tea and the inspiration for Tregothnan’s growing range of products.

“We know our Tea Boutique would not be complete without Tregothnan Tea,” Proprietress Sarah Erlandson said. “When we discovered that there was tea – and a good tea – grown in England, we cleared off a shelf and knew it would be filled with the wide variety of Tregothnan’s Teas.” Erlandson’s Tea Boutique is a specialty retail shoppe that was born out of Erlandson’s love for all things tea. Her company, Fancy That, rents English bone chine for weddings, bridal showers, garden parties, and any celebration that uses vintage items, from her collection of mis-matched silver plated flatware, to vintage mis-matched dessert plates. “Now in our eighth year of renting vintage china, the natural progression was to open a storefront and sell items that had a tea theme, including Tregothnan Tea from England.

“We are proud to be one of only a handful of specialty retailers selling their tea in the USA” Erlandson points out. “We knew our Shoppe wouldn’t be complete without the addition of the only tea actually grown in England.” Fancy That also ships Tregothnan Tea Products anywhere in the continental USA (FPO and APO's excluded).

Fancy That has opened a Facebook Store

We have had such great feedback about our Tea Boutique that, due to popular demand, we have opened a Facebook Store! We have a limited list of items but some of our favorites made the first cut, like:

Our lemon zest tea bread is topped with a sweet lemon glaze. The perfect companion for your tea.

Our Herbal Sugars come in three flavours like the Rose Geranium pictured above. They are wondeful and subtle when used on baking. The sugars are also a treat when used to flavour your tea.

And each pack of sugar (about a half pound of flavoured sugar) comes with a recipe card that will delight your senses...we made the shortbread cookies with lavender sugar and loved them so much, we made them again to "taste test" the product! (grin)

As we add new items on our Facebook Store, we will be sure to let you know here and on Facebook! (Log on and "be our friend"!) (Oh, and we sell gift certificates as well...perfect for the gentlemen to buy for their lady-friends!..hear THAT Hubby? huge grin) Thanks for stopping by!
