This is a U.K. Tea Academy certified masterclass and can be booked on the UKTA website via the link below. You will learn about black tea making on a one to one basis alongside tea maker Beverly Wainwright as you process tea for Scottish tea growers. You will also be taught the theory of black tea processing. This is a rare opportunity to learn about tea making in a small working tea factory. Beverly is also teaching tea making in Wales with Lucy George at Peterston Tea. This can be booked via the link below.
Beverly has worked around the world advising small scale tea growers and has helped set up several small scale tea factories. She managed a tea estate in Sri Lanka for several years where she set up a small scale tea factory and developed a line of artisan teas. If you are looking for advice about tea growing or making, contact Beverly to arrange an initial phone call after which, Beverly will put together a proposal for your project. Consultancy advice early on can save costs and provide good guidance in the development of your tea business. Beverly has also created an online course “from seed to cup” for the U.K. Tea Academy which covers a lot of basic advice. The U.K. Tea Academy TEA CHAMPION course is also a must for any aspiring grower!
“Bev has incredible knowledge and experience in tea growing, tea making (ie withering, rolling, fixing, oxidising - all sorts of complex technical stuff, bespoke to the leaves), tea tasting and training. She’s amazing! Her Scottish Tea Factory is a remarkable venture. Also it’s a stunning building in a gorgeous location! Highly recommend a visit for one of her courses.” Mary Macdonald
“Fantastic tea blending course on Saturday, a must for any tea lover. Bev is wonderful, knowledgeable and engaging.” Niamh Conlon
”Black Tea Making - MASTERCLASS”
“The perfect course for anyone wanting to learn how to make Black Tea. The essential course if you plan to sell your product” I attended Beverly’s first course in the new Scottish Tea Factory, on the subject of making Black Tea. Anyone with a computer and access to Google can discover the stages to making tea, but Beverly puts the ‘flesh on the bones’. How long? What temperature? Is the humidity important? ...I thoroughly commend it!” Donald Fraser
