Take Tea the Valentines Way – New & Exclusive

Back in 1700’s, when the mansion would have been home to Sir Charles Raymond, drinking tea would have been a popular passtime for the residents and their guests.

Sir Charles, owner of Valentines and a ships captain for the East India Company would have managed many voyages for the company, and would have brought back Chinese tea to drink within the house when he lived here between 1754 and 1788. In honour of this, we’ve worked with tea expert Mark Nicholls to blend a special Valentines Tea, as similar as possible to the tea which would have been drunk in this very house all those years ago!

IMG_3230Mark has blended two gorgeous teas, completely unique to the house.  An Afternoon Tea Blend – specially selected Assam tea, decorated with delicate cornflowers, and an aromatic Chinese Green Tea, with pretty roses giving this blend its unique flavour and taste.

The teas are beautifully packaged and are available to purchase exclusively at the Mansion.  Priced at £8.50 for the Afternoon Tea and £9.50 for the Chinese Tea, they make a wonderful souvenir of your visit to the Mansion or a great gift for family and friends.

The Mansion is open to the public on Sundays and Tuesdays between 11am – 3pm, free entry.
