Veronica Rechere: The UK's first Herbal Tea Sommelier and Founder and CEO of Versatelier and am passionate about herbal tisanes and fruit infusions. Friends and family have enjoyed my tisanes over the years and welcome new and exciting blends. Born in London in the United Kingdom, I was fortunate to experience a wide variety of teas in Jamaica from a young age by my parents and grandparents. Over the years herbal tisanes and meditation have continued to be an important part of my daily life, where I create blends using herbs, spices, fruits and roots. VER is an acronym from my name and the French name 'ATELIER' means 'workshop or studio' from which an artist or designer creates fabulous things like tisanes and fruit infusions " I am dedicated to blending the finest organic tisanes and fruit infusions that promote mental wellness, that gives purpose and time to who we are and what makes us happy.
This is about supporting individuals from all walks of life, to hold a space for themselves especially when life can be hectic be it at home, work or as a carer for those you love.
The importance of self-care, meditation, and mindfulness and how it can prepare you throughout the day.
By providing 1-1 consultations using herbal tisanes and meditation will assist your journey to wellness.
Finding a particular time in the day to meditate whilst taking in the scent and savouring the taste of the natural goodness of tisanes, creates relaxation through practice over time.
The very essence of meditation is a pathway to a deep connection to your true and authentic self and is the beginning of that journey to inner freedom.
Meditation allows you to have the ability to cultivate compassion when needed and creates a deep sense of inner peace when practiced. Being mindful that your own well-being journey is of highest importance.
This very support will open people’s lives to be in the present moment to deal positively with situations, heal and be at peace within, or just maybe…. to make important decisions in life at a time when most needed.
My tisanes will reconnect you with the sights and sounds of nature, comforting music, or just a moment of quiet to bring peace to your mind, body, and soul.
“Meditate. Breathe consciously. Listen. Pay attention. Treasure every moment. Make the connection.” – Oprah Winfrey
Tea and giving back to nature once it has been consumed, is not something that everyone thinks about. My passion is to ensure that there is an awareness of the benefits of tisanes and what we can do to make a difference for farmers who provide what we are consuming. The circular economy gives us the tools to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss together, while addressing important social needs.

The circular economy is based on three principles, driven by design:
