TGS is a group of 9 women who got together to share the costs of propagating tea seedlings and consultancy. I have been working with them as a tea consultant since 2017. Their gardens are in Fife, Angus and Perthshere. It is possible to visit some of these gardens by appointment.
Megginch offer private group tours of the Castle and gardens with a tea tasting by special arrangement only. I have also worked with Megginch Castle to create bespoke breakfast and afternoon tea blends. If you are interested in this service for your hotel or restaurant please contact the Scottish Tea Factory.
The first tea produced at the Scottish Tea Factory on behalf of Broich Tea Garden in Crieff was used as one of the botanicals to create the “growers edition” Broich Single Estate limited edition Teasmith gin.
I have been a licensed trainer for the U.K. Tea Academy since January 2019. This is the only body in the U.K. running professional level, certified tea courses. I offer TEA CHAMPION courses at the Scottish Tea Factory.
I am working on tea experiments at the Scottish Tea Factory with Scottish tea garden, Dornoch Tea to develop their first black tea. The tea should be on sale in the autumn of 2020.
I currently work with Mogok Tea, Five Trees Estate, Myanmar to help set up their micro tea factory and develop new teas. This is a much needed initiative providing employment and also running community initiatives such as recycling and raising awareness of mental health issues. Website is coming soon.
