A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
Sashee Chandran, Founder and CEO, Tea Drops
Growing up in a tea enriched household (my mom is Chinese and dad is Sri Lankan) tea has been a constant in my life. I grew up sipping on a variety of loose leaf teas, and saw first-hand how a cup of tea could inspire a unique shared experience, drawing people together in honest conversation.
My parents, Bala and Mae. So cute, right?!
As I grew older and joined my first big girl job at a large tech company, I soon realized that my favorite ritual of preparing loose leaf tea at work was unrealistic. I used to have an arsenal of tea equipment at my desk from a electric kettle, to an infuser, to a timer -- all of which I rarely had the time to use. Yet it seemed that tea bags rarely rivaled the taste of loose leaf tea, and were often difficult to dispose of in the middle of meetings (to prevent over-steeping).
My own experience of craving a loose leaf tea that was convenient for a busy, on-the-go lifestyle, inspired me to create Tea Drops. After two years of experimenting with different tea blends and processes in my own apartment -- on weekends and weeknights -- Tea Drops was born.
These fun-shaped organic morsels of tea, spices, and with a hint of raw sugar make the perfect cup of tea attainable without the fuss wherever I go--at the office, while traveling, on-the-go, or relaxing at home.
It was only a matter of time until I left the corporate world with the support of my family, friends, and colleagues to launch Tea Drops. I remain overwhelmed with the amount of support and encouragement Tea Drops has received. Tea Drops has since been named one of the most innovative beverages of the year and touted as “Clever, unique, and delicious too!” by the Specialty Food Association. Our journey in this short time has been nothing short of amazing, and I am sincerely grateful that you’ve joined us!
