A conversation with Susie Walker-Munro, a founder member of the Tea Gardens of Scotland collective, producers of the first 100% Scottish-grown tea.
We discuss how the project began, how they grow and make their tea and their hopes for the future of Scottish tea.
**Please note - because my conversations with guests are informal and usually recorded at their home or places of work, there can be some background noise - in this case, Susie's lovely dog! There's also a little bit of a buzz in the recording. Sorry this isn't up to the usual audio quality and I hope it won't put you off listening - it's a really interesting chat :)
The Tea Gardens of Scotland website has details of all of the gardens and growers, or visit The Scottish Tea Factory for tea tasting and blending courses.
Here's a direct link to Kinnettles Tea Garden where Susie grows and you can buy Kinnettles Gold here.
