Loose-leaf tea is a tea that is not brewed in a teabag. Instead, the leaves brew directly in hot water and that allows the water to extract a wide range of vitamins, minerals, flavors, and aromas from the leaves.
That’s what the founders of TiestaTea experienced on their trip to Prague, Czech Republic where they tasted loose tea. At that time, in the USA people who wanted to try loose leaf tea, had to find a specialty store, pay way too much money and deal with very confusing and hard to understand names of various teas.
So Dan and Patrick decided to revolutionize how people consume tea. Their mission is to make tea consumption accessible, affordable and understandable. Being in business for over 10 years now, they started on the shelves of stores and are now running the largest portion of their business online.
