Taming of the Dragons!
Posted on: September 22, 2012
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!

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be part of the Steeped Tea team. I love the business model and, as importantly, the entrepreneurs. Tonia and Hatem are not only good business people, but also just plain good people. What attracted me most was how much they care about the consultants–they truly think of them as family.

Great tea, great model, great people–this was one of the easiest decisions of my career!” David Chilton.
