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.

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.
