"Angela was an absolute pleasure to work with. She wears her significant experience in the tea industry with a winning lightness and charm. She is unflagging in her positivity and good nature. For an enterprise like Albion Tea which is looking to push boundaries and challenge convention with our Tea Pubs, Angela was ready to go the extra mile to help us get closer to our goals. We learned a lot about the art as well as the industry of tea with Angela as she combines knowledge of both."
"Angela was a joy to work with, our numerous questions were answered promptly, in clear and precise terms with good humour and great knowledge. Her extensive knowledge of the tea industry helped us through a minefield of blend selection, tea bag production and packaging. Angela's expertise in creating exciting and innovative blends has given us a superb range of blends.'
