A young, independent company, the Wee Tea Co is an online retailer of loose leaf tea, offering tea to home consumers, supplying delis and independent food shops, as well as providing tea for foodservice outlets.
An increasing element of their range are teas grown on a small scale in Scotland, with teas coming from Perthshire, Dumfries & Galloway and the Isle of Mull.
The Fife-based Wee Tea Company was set up in 2012 by Jamie Russell and Derek Walker, initially as specialist tea blenders.
However they have now moved into growing their own tea, and their plantation at Dalreoch is already home to 2,000 plants, making it one of the largest in Europe.
The Wee Tea Company manufactures a whole range of tea blends, including a breakfast blend, a minty green tea, chamomile and lavender, Earl Grey, ginger chai, and Darjeeling.

A huge machine to save us hand packing everything!
Everyone in the business probably has their own special cup – mine has a photo of my kids on it.
Everything by Jane Pettigrew is great.
We will keep creating exciting blends and look to get our brand as far and wide as possible – but not compromise on quality.
I wouldn’t – there is already enough competition!
That would be a busman’s holiday – amazingly – when traveling I try to avoid cafes!
