TEA GARDENS OF SCOTLAND - in Fife

A Very Rare Breed

Nestling amidst the hilly terrain of north east Fife, with panoramic views of St Andrews Bay and the Lomond Hills, lies Fife's other tea plantation.

Rare amongst the TGS group, it is not situated in a classic walled garden, but can be found on a sunny south facing slope at the very heart of the herb rich pastures, wild flower meadows and diverse woodland that make up a small farm specialising in breeding Dexter cattle and rare Scottish sheep.

Scotland's rarest breed of sheep, the Boreray, originally from St Kilda, is now about to be joined by another rare creature: tea sown, grown and made by hand in Fife on a truly artisan scale by growers whose ethos is provenance and quality.

Planting out in the field is due to start in early August 2017.
