About Beverly-Claire Wainwright
Beverly worked as manager of Amba tea estate in Sri Lanka where she spent several years experimenting with hand made tea, before finally setting up a micro-scale tea factory and training local women to make tea. She developed a range of high quality specialist teas that were exported worldwide to stores such as Harney and Sons in the U.S.A. and Fortnum and Mason in the U.K.
Since returning to Scotland Beverly has worked as an associate tea consultant for Teacraft Ltd, advising growers in the U.S.A. to help them create award-winning teas and working with aspiring tea growers in the UK. Beverly’s role with Tea Gardens of Scotland is both as consultant to conduct micro-experiments to assess the flavour profile and best processing methods for Scottish tea, and as project co-ordinator. In additions Beverly leads tea tours throughout the world. Closer to home she is working within local communities to pass on her knowledge and great love of tea.
