Welcome! I’m Tonia Jahshan, Founder and President at Sipology by Steeped Tea! I started this company over 12 years ago after a trip to Nova Scotia, Canada where I fell in love with the most delicious loose-leaf tea called Earl Grey de la Crème. Everything about this tea made me happy; the smell, the appearance and the taste!
I brought a bunch of this tea home and started to share it with my friends and family. They all loved it, too! On a mission, I developed the idea for Steeped Tea and set out to find better accessories to make loose-leaf tea and began hosting tea parties around my area. The tea parties were so popular, the business started to grow rapidly! Our first consultant joined in 2007, and she’s still with us today.
In 2012, we successfully pitched Steeped Tea on Dragons’ Den (similar to Shark Tank), partnering with Jim Treliving and David Chilton. This was extremely validating for the direct sales industry as a whole and very rewarding for us as a company, too. It was a no brainer for both Dave and Jim, and the rest is history! They are still partners to this day, and we are extremely grateful for their confidence in us and guidance along the way.
Over a cup of tea, we want to make a difference in each other’s lives. Tea joins us wherever we go! So, if you’re looking for an amazing community to belong to or you’re just a tea lover looking for an extra income – then I invite you to get started today!
I look forward to welcoming you to our TEAm.
Everything aligned when we partnered with our investors David Chilton and Jim Treliving of CBC’s Dragons’ Den. Catch the full segment to see how the deal went down.
