Over the years, she has also worked as editor of Tea International, as Managing Director of St James's Teas and as consultant and trainer to The UK Tea Council. She regularly trains staff at some of London's most important five star hotels including the Dorchester, Grosvenor House, the Waldorf, Browns and The Savoy and runs monthly Tea Masterclasses for anyone who wants to know more about tea in order to enhance their business or personal life. Jane speaks at conferences and events around the world and appears regularly on television and radio.
