Talks & Lectures

An entertaining, informative and experienced speaker, I talk on all aspects of tea. From a general introduction to tea, through to more specific themes such as a recent talk for the Himalayan Homes Trust on the history of Nepalese Tea. 

I've presented talks for language schools, international students, research companies, corporate events, marketing companies and charity fundraisers both in the UK and abroad. 

Topics can be themed around your specific requirements or I can suggest a range of interesting and popular topics. 

Speaking engagements can be combined with or incorporated into other events. 

Please contact me to discuss your requirements and pricing. 


"Thank you for your talk yesterday - I think I can safely say it was incredibly well received"

— Abby, International Students House

"I think it's safe to say you were the star attraction in our client's eyes, and they particularly enjoyed the session with you... you definitely made a good impact.   Thanks for being so flexible with us on this and a total pro on the day - we were really impressed and would work with you again in the future."

— Dominic

Ipsos Mori event for Unilever

"Everyone really loved the talk and we have had some great feedback from both guests and the team at Southside House, so thank you very much for putting on such a wonderful performance and such and entertaining talk"

— Joanne and Jenny, Himalayan Homes Trust

"Kyle was so friendly and open to answer questions. You didn't feel like you were taking in so much new knowledge, but just having a fun chat"

— @teatimeiscoming

"This event is incredibly interesting. Kyle's knowledge in all things tea is amazing - refreshingly different for this region, for anyone looking for a bit of a change...  You will never prepare tea wrongly ever again!"

— Anita, Tea Brewing Masterclass

I can see we've barely rippled the surface of your in depth knowledge on the subject. Made a charming and educational afternoon. I will definitely come again."

— Ewen, Afternoon Tea Party
