Some of the best ideas are born from personal traditions… things you never imagine will be a business.
That’s what happened with 32-year-old Sashee Chandran and her multi-million dollar tea startup.
Sashee grew up drinking tea and surrounded by people drinking tea. To connect with one another. To relax at the end of the day. And she brought this into her adult life. She never imagined tea would become the core of her business!
Today, we’re talking with Sashee about the entire process of creating her product and where her business is today…
