Hi - I'm Verity. Welcome to Joie de Tea!
I'm in my early 30s and have a background in natural therapies and early medieval studies. I live with my husband, our baby son, and a Tonkinese cat with a strong sleep ethic. I'm a Lord of the Rings nerd, I love Agatha Christie mysteries, and I also love to bake... so I have delicious goodies to eat with my tea!
It was my interest in herbal medicine that first got me really passionate about tea. I grew up in a tea-drinking family (I've never been a coffee drinker) but teabags were the order of the day. Once I discovered herbal teas, though, I began experimenting with mixing my own, and I also became interested in drinking and learning about quality black, green and other teas.
