Véronique Jalbert's
favourites

Véronique had developed a passion for tea long before she joined the Camellia Sinensis team 11 years ago. Part of her work is writing all those elaborate flavour-profile descriptions for the website, for each tea as it arrives. She has become very skilled at this thanks to her focussed, technical approach and her distinct personal touch.  Sharing her favourites with us she opens up her own tea universe. More on our blog.
