Wee Tea raises a cuppa to the Army Reserve

December 15, 2021

Fife’s Wee Tea Company has surprised the new Commanding Officer of Dunfermline-based 154 (Scottish) Regiment RLC with a warming cuppa.

Lieutenant Colonel Sarah Johnson was presented with a selection of teas at 154 Regiment’s HQ from Wee Tea’s Martin Rae and Derek Walker.

The Wee Tea Company recently signed the Armed Forces Covenant, a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly.

Martin and Derek are keen to honour that promise and decided to make Sarah’s day with a surprise visit. She chose the Rhubarb Rooibos Tea, recently voted No 1 at the Scottish Retail Food and Drink Awards 2021 in the Tea and Tisanes (herbal teas) category.

Ray Watt (left) also attended, both as a Regional Employer Engagement Director at HRFCA, and as the second in command of 154 Regiment.

Sarah declared it “delicious” and said she was very much looking forward to sampling the other teas that had been brought along.

Wee Tea Director Derek Walker said the company was proud to be an Armed Forces Friendly employer and would be keen to employ Veterans and Reservists as the company expands.
