A free paperback leaflet.
We received these lovely leaflets last year from our tea friend Monica, who runs Windy Hollow Farm, an organic tea farm in Scotland. Who, together with the association created an intriguing and informative leaflet detailing their aims and profiling their tea producing members.
Over the last 150 years, there have been experiments in Europe growing the camellia sinensis plant and making tea from it. Some early experiments can be found in Portugal and France. Tea plants across the world grows under diverse geographic and climatic conditions, and at least, parts of Europe are potentially suitable for tea growing.
As an association, we want to take this further and promote the growing of tea as an economic activity. Since 2016, the association continues to grow rapidly and includes a large number of projects and members.
The Tea Grown in Europe Association currently has tea-growing members in the Azores, France, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Jersey, Portugal, Scotland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom.
