Tea researching is a profession

9 February 2024

I’m not the only tea researcher in the world today. Léo also travels in search of rare teas. We’ve been working together for over five years.

There are only two tea researchers in France for now, but there’s no doubt that it’s a profession with a future, given the current enthusiasm in France for quality tea.

How does one become a tea researcher? The answer is coming soon…
