Selling British Tea To China
Almost everything we buy has a Made In China stamp on it these days. You might think it is all one way traffic, but you'd be wrong. When it comes to buying quality the Chinese prefer to buy Western goods. Cars, brand clothing, wines, design furniture and so on. We can add Briitsh tea to that list. The Tregothnan Estate near Truro in Cornwall is bucking an historic trend by growing tea in England and exporting almost half of it abroad, including to tea-growing nations like China and India.
