Tonia Jahshan - maker, Sipology by Steeped Tea

Tonia Jahshan of Sipology

It all started with a cup of tea. In just ten short years, Tonia Jahshan, with her family by her side, has made premium loose-leaf tea the daily norm, by turning tea lovers into business owners through her direct sales company, Sipologyd. Her journey started in 2006 with a mini vacation to a Halifax bed and breakfast, with her husband Hatem. It was here for the first time she tried Cream of Earl Grey loose leaf tea and was blown away by the flavour. The Jahshans stocked up, returning home, wanting to share this newfound love with family and friends. Sharing a cup of Cream of Earl Grey tea turned into something more, and Tonia’s vision to build a direct sales company was born.

In 2012 everything aligned when Tonia and Hatem entered CBC’s Dragons’ Den and partnered with Jim Treliving and David Chilton. Today, Steeped Tea has millions in annual sales and thousands of Consultants across North America selling loose leaf tea and accessories. The company has been recognized year after year as one of PROFIT 500’s Fastest-Growing Companies in Canada, and Tonia was proclaimed as Canada’s #1 Female Entrepreneur by W100; she has received the Ernst and Young Entrepreneurial Winning Women award and has been listed as 1 of 6 Women to Watch on forbes.com. Tonia lives in Hamilton, Ontario with her husband Hatem and three kids – Layla, Jenna, and Sami.
