Tea Pesheva tells us about her home country and her experiences as President of St. Andrews Rotaract Club.

Tea comes from Macedonia, a country just north of Greece and east of Albania. The country has about two million inhabitants, was formerly part of Yugoslavia and has been an independent republic since 1991. The relatively warm climate in Macedonia provides excellent growth conditions for a variety of vegetables, herbs and fruits. Macedonian cuisine is also noted for the diversity and quality of its dairy products, wines and local alcoholic beverages.
