It all started with a scent... A scent... An elevator ride in an old tea house. And, it hit me. I closed my eyes. Aromas that washed over my senses like a tidal wave. One moment and I traveled back in time. Back to my apartment. Back to the challenging, chaotic, stressful times as a business student. When it all became too much and I needed a break. An escape. A place of security. And there it was: tea! Warm, calming, pure and invigorating.
I opened my eyes. Back in the elevator. Back to the teahouse. Flooded with nostalgia. And in that moment I knew I wanted to share this with the world. I wanted others to experience the same magic.
I say goodbye to my financial career to embark on a magical adventure in the world of tea.
