A little bit about our founder and how she got started…

“I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit. Being the daughter of a pizzeria-restaurant owner and growing up in a commercial kitchen, I always knew that I wanted to open my own business – specifically one in the food and beverage realm.

There's something so satisfying about nurturing others with a treat they can enjoy. As a tea lover myself, it was only natural for me to be drawn to the idea of creating my own artisan tea blends. From the start (and still to this day!), I create the blends by hand in small batches – chopping up cinnamon bark and cracking open cardamom seeds. After years of my handmade tea blend being well received, and being told that my chai was one of the best people have had (especially when some of those people were tea snobs!) I began thinking that it might be time to turn my passion into a business. Today, that chai blend has become one of our top sellers – Spice Girls.

It wasn't until a couple of years later that I actually turned my dream into a reality. For a very long time, I had been playing with flavor combinations and concepts, but like most small business owners, I was scared to start. The weekend of my 30 th birthday – when I'd been feeling symptoms of the "aging blues" – my husband took me on a surprise trip to Miami. As I floated in the ocean in 90-degree weather, while it was below zero and snowing back home in New York City, I thought to myself, "anything is possible. I'm not old – I can still pick up and escape to someplace warm on a whim. I can do anything!" When I got out of the water, I laid on the sand and scribbled logo ideas in a notebook. I pondered over my ideas on what I’d name each of the blends I'd been testing out for years. My 30th birthday present to myself was the freedom from the fear that had been holding me back – I was going to officially launch Oh You, TEAse.”
