Tea Gardens of Scotland

    TGS is a group of nine farms and rural businesses located throughout Angus, Fife, Perthshire and Aberdeenshire who came together in 2016 with the idea of planting tea as a crop. Scottish from seed – Makers of pure hand-made tea TGS has a passion for high-quality tea. To create a truly unique tea it is vital to work with the green leaf and to find the best processing methods to work with our terroir. Learning about different teas is a major part of our strategy.

    Very Craftea

    Very Craftea, selling socially responsive loose leaf tea with cute craft kits! with everything included (so you don’t need to buy loads of other stuff to finish your craft project). It all started one evening with a good friend, a cup of tea, some cake and trying to answer the thought provoking questions, like ‘why aren’t there trousers for dogs?’ Good company and tea. What would make it even better would be a craft kit to go along with it – and that’s how Very Craftea came into existence.

    Perfect Iced Tea Recipe

    Ingredients 6-8 tea bags 4 cups hot water 1 quart cold water ½ cup sugar or ¼ cup honey, optional Directions Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Drop in the tea bags in and steep for only 10-12 minutes, otherwise it will be too strong and tannic tasting. After steeping, take out the bags, squeeze gently and discard them.
