First Scottish tea plantation opened in Perthshire

Scotland's first tea plantation has been opened in Perthshire.

The Fife-based Wee Tea Company currently grows 2,000 plants which are used in making specialist Scottish blends.

Co-founder James Russell said the Scottish climate was not unlike the mountainous Indian region of Darjeeling.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast: "As long as our plants are well cared for and looked after through the cold season - we're expecting wonderful things."
