'Bev is so clear and articulate. The pace and content are really really good - just what people need for small scale tea processing at home. I love it.'
Jane Pettigrew, Director of Studies
Who is it for?
Ideal for anyone already growing or interested in growing tea in the back garden and making black, green or white tea at home.
What does it cover?
This is an introduction to how to pick and manufacture tea at home from a tea plant. It is especially relevant to those living in northern hemisphere conditions.
What will I need?
Just your computer or tablet. There are no required practical elements during the online course and therefore no specialist equipment or tea is needed. If you do not already own a tea plant then you will no doubt want to buy one after watching this video course!
About the tutor
Beverly is our Authorised trainer in Scotland. She owns and runs The Scottish Tea Factory 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. Many of the teas she has helped create have been bought by high-end retailers such as Harney and Sons in the US and Fortnum and Mason in the UK.
