Commencing her career as an interior designer, Sumita J.Singam-Takács made a business out of her favourite beverage in 2010. Sumita completed her interior architecture studies in Melbourne, Australia and developed an addiction to hot cups of tea which helped warm her cold hands in the cooler weather.
The tea aficionado had her first encounter with a fine gourmet tea in 2007 while travelling in Seoul. Besides the hefty price tag that caught her attention, the flavour was special too. Ever since, trying that gourmet rooibos blend, she sought out various gourmet tea blends and eventually decided on starting a speciality tea store in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
With over ten years in the tea business, she is passionate about helping her customers discover and try new tea blends; guiding them to elevate their tea drinking experience.
When not working on the tea business, Sumita can be found trying to keep up with her two children and tasting new tea blends with her husband Jan, a fellow tea aficionado.
