It takes a village to make an event like this happen and we are extremely grateful to some amazing partners who we have on board including Cowdray Estate, The Lickfold Inn
and The Spread Eagle Hotel
. Hosting the event at Cowdray, where Nic is based for the UK season, is extremely special. We are proud to be working with Tregothnan
, the pioneers of growing tea in the UK. Make sure you sample the “Sunset Polo blend
” of tea Nic and Tregothnan have developed together and get a selfie with the world’s biggest tea pot! We are very excited to showcase many local businesses at this event, whilst providing a platform for them.
“The new and exclusive Nic Roldan’s Sunset blend is the most adventurous and stimulating tea blend ever. The transatlantic high society are sure to love this incredible tea and working with Nic has been a pleasure. Sample blends have been back and forth across the Atlantic to achieve the perfect finish and we are thrilled to be supporting Nic’s Sunset Polo events.” ~ Jonathon Jones, Tregothnan CEO
