Swanpool Beach Café in Falmouth has shown its commitment to the local economy by serving Cornish-only tea from the Tregothnan estate, thanks to a budding new partnership of two local businesses.
With only 15 miles between the two, there is a natural partnership for the two successful Cornish companies to work together.
Pete Lochrie, owner of Swanpool Beach Cafe, is committed to using local produce and jumped at the chance to make his tea menu exclusively Tregothnan grown, including four black teas and ten herbal infusions.
Pete said: “We are delighted to be one of the country’s first businesses to be selling Cornish only teas.
“Not only are they are such a high quality product but the fact that they are grown just a few miles away is very important to us.
“We are particularly happy that we can bring our customers the same high quality that one can expect at Claridge’s and The Ritz at our humble beach cafe.”
Duncan Hutchings, tea specialist at Tregothnan, said: “Swanpool Beach Cafe was the obvious choice for a new local stockist for Tregothnan and we are very excited to be working with them.
“The setting is simply wonderful and the environment friendly, fun and welcoming.”
