TEA GARDENS OF SCOTLAND - in Fife
Logie Tea Garden
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 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.

Rankeilour Tea Garden
Rankeilour Tea Garden is in what remains of an old walled vegetable garden, which was used as a market garden and nursery before lying fallow for several years. There is a strong gardening tradition in both sides of the family - flowers and vegetables - as well as a tea drinking tradition, which is what inspired us to join the TGS group and plant tea.
