Consultant * Speaker * Researcher
Immersed in the world of English tea from a young age, Caroline spent many afternoons ‘taking tea’ in the households and establishments near her childhood home in Chelsea.
These early experiences of afternoon tea inspired a lifelong interest in the manners and etiquette surrounding the social interaction of tea drinking, some of which are now misunderstood, misinterpreted or no longer relevant today.
Since 1993, Caroline has been studying and researching the history and customs of British tea culture. She explains the complexities of this subject through private consultancy, workshops, events and talks.
