MY STORY

With a background in event design, I have been travelling and sharing tea since 2011. Over recent years I have turned my passion for tea, stories and design, to introducing people to exciting new ways of enjoying tea.

‘Europe, and England in particular has such a rich tea history and tradition of utilising herbal remedies to promote wellbeing and relaxation. Tea is the staple of English society and was originally introduced as a tonic and a safe alternative to gin, due to the unavailability of clean drinking water. In Chinese medicine tea is hailed as a super cure owing to its antibacterial and soothing qualities. I want people to take great pleasure in fully embracing the healing powers of tea but also enjoying the aroma, taste and appearance of this diverse leaf.’

Over the past years I have been establishing connections with notable tea institutions in England, Netherlands, Japan, Australia I am now utilising my knowledge to create new tea experiences for the hospitality and event sector.
