International Licensed Tutor, Scotland

The Scottish Tea Factory
Crieff, Perthshire

Beverly teaches several modules of Tea Champion in live webinars and is the UKTA Licensed Tutor in Scotland. She owns and runs The Scottish Tea Factory near Crieff in Perthshire, which she built to provide tea-processing services for Scottish tea growers. This is also where she holds customised courses and tastings, and runs the UK Tea Academy Tea Champion course in person.

Beverly has worked with tea for many years and in 2011 she was asked to help develop the Amba tea estate in Sri Lanka. She transformed this struggling garden producing virtually no tea into a thriving estate making beautiful handmade teas and other items to provide sustainable livelihoods for the women working there.

Beverly is an independent consultant offering advice to small-scale tea producers worldwide. As a tea cultivation and processing expert, she has worked with Mogok Tea in Myanmar and is an associate of Teacraft Ltd. advising amongst others, The Great Mississippi Tea Co.

Many of the teas she has helped create have been bought by high-end retailers such as Harney and Sons in the US, Fortnum and Mason in the UK and Canton Tea who supply her 100% Scottish tea to the Five Star Corinthia Hotel, London.
