Over the last few weeks, we have hired a very talented and internationally renowned tea consultant from Scotland to help us master our tea making techniques and develop the highest quality tea.
Beverly's background includes some time in Sri Lanka managing Amba Tea Estate. In just four years she turned around the fortunes of this estate by setting up the first micro-scale tea factory in Sri Lanka and developing a line of exclusive hand-made teas that were sold to the likes of Harney and Sons in the US and Fortnum and Mason in the UK.
In more recent years Beverly has been working as a consultant. She has helped set up 2 small-scale international tea sellers, built a tea factory in Scotland, won awards with clients for their teas, and so much more.
Beverly's philosophy when creating a new tea is never to try and copy an existing tea but rather to develop flavors and processing methods that suit the plants and the terroir. This is important to us as we look to create a distinct quality Louisiana tea here at Fleur De Lis Tea Company.
In her time with us, she has shared her extensive knowledge of tea, her taste for quality, and an undeniable drive for excellence.
We are confident that with the guidance she has given us, you are all in for a treat in the future with some amazing teas.
We are incredibly grateful to Beverly.
