Passionista Sashee Chandran — Taking Over the Tea Business One Drop at a Time
Sashee Chandran, Founder of Tea Drops
When we came up with the idea for The Passionistas Project Podcast, we thought it would be fun to have each interviewee nominate someone else for us to talk to. We hoped, but never really could have dreamed, that it would lead it us to so many incredible women the way it has. At the end of our very first interview with Coolhaus founder Natasha Case, she suggested we talk with Sashee Chandran, the founder of Tea Drops, a unique and delicious line of pressed teas that dissolve right in your cup. Our talk with Sashee was exhilarating. Hearing about her journey from eBay marketing executive to beverage entrepreneur was incredibly inspiring. In our podcast, Sashee talks about her bold decision to leave her corporate job behind and start a company with little experience but a driving passion that made her unstoppable. She’s clear to point out that her path has not been without challenges. And it’s refreshing to hear her talk about the complexities of finding balance and keeping your mental health in check while launching a new brand in a highly competitive space. Since we sat with Sashee, she’s been at the UTA Green Expo, on HSN and featured on Forbes.com. Next week she heads off to New York for three days of workshops and networking as part of a select group of ten female entrepreneurs who were chosen to be fellows by the Tory Burch Foundation. We’re so excited to see where Sashee is headed next and honored that she took the time to share her story with us. To hear our whole interview with Sashee check out the Passionistas Project Podcast.
