About the Founder: A Journey from Tea Novice to Aficionado

In a world where many default to coffee or soda for their caffeine fix, I found my solace in tea. As I began my tea journey, like so many others, I was faced with the common pitfalls: bewildered by the myriad of choices, occasionally duped by misleading blends, and the trial and error of brewing. It's a journey that has taught me to truly savor and appreciate every cup.

Fast forward to today, I've taken those lessons and created a platform for tea lovers, both beginners and experts alike. My passion for tea goes beyond just sipping; it delves into the mechanics and artistry of tea-making itself, fueled by my background as an engineer.
