Angus LEADER, along with our local area group counterparts in Fife and Perth & Kinross support Artisan Tea Gardens Ltd a collaborative partnership of nine tea growers. The project includes specialist advice from expert tea consultants, special equipment for working in the individual gardens, and learning visits to Japanses and Sri-Lankan training and development events. Hopefully within two or three years, the group aim to develop a tea-trail around the sites, allowing their fans to see the gardens and compare the teas, and significant interest has already arisen on the back of successes already achieved.
Employment impacts resulting from the successful development of new tea businesses, with all the growers employing additional temporary staff from the local area and the development of tourist enterprises related to tea products.
