Taming of the Dragons!

Steeped Tea is THRILLED to welcome David Chilton and Jim Treliving to the TEAm!

On Wednesday’s Season Seven Premiere of Dragons’ Den, Steeped Tea faced the Dragons and delivered their seamless (and tasty) pitch asking $250,000 for 20% of their company. If you watched the episode, you will know the Dragons jumped on the opportunity to be a part of Steeped Tea. Dave decided he was in before the pitch was even over!

After some duelling back and forth between the Dragons, Tonia and Hatem Jahshan walked out of the room with two fierce investors on their side, ready to help take them into the US market.

So buckle up Steeped Tea fans! Things are about to get crazier around here!
