Tease Tea Founder & Tea Sommelier Sheena Brady partnered with COO Amanda Baker to delivered a pitch to CBC's Dragons Den this past November. You've been asking for updates and here's what we can share:

We accepted a deal! Well, at least on TV anyway. While the terms of the deal may have surprised some, We had one motive - To continue conversations post episode, vs walking away entirely. TV vs real life are two very different experiences and here's what happened after the show aired:

Tease Tea Founder Sheena Brady, and Dragon Vince Guzzo continued conversations and negotiations for a few weeks. For Sheena, it was important to land a strong partner with aligned values and access to new opportunities. This was more important than accessing capital itself.

Ultimately, after several conversations and negotiations post show, Sheena decided to actually walk away and continues to own 100% ownership of Tease Tea.
Pitching to the Dragons and working with the shows producers was a great experience overall, and our team was thankful to be a part of season 15.
