UK Tea Academy Authorised Trainer
Beverly (The Scottish Tea Factory, Tea Gardens of Scotland) offers the UK Tea Academy Tea Champion course at the Scottish Tea Factory near Crieff in Perthshire, which she recently built to offer tea-processing services for Scottish tea growers. She has worked with tea since 2011 when she was called in to develop the Amba tea estate in Sri Lanka. She transformed this struggling garden producing no tea into a thriving estate making beautiful handmade teas and other items to provide sustainable livelihoods for its workers. As a tea cultivation and processing expert, she has since worked as an associate with Teacraft Ltd. advising amongst others, The Great Mississippi Tea Co. and is now an independent consultant offering advice to small-scale tea producers worldwide.
