About Us

For Tonia Jahshan, a cup of tea changed her life forever and we believe it can for you, too.


Welcome! I’m Tonia Jahshan, Founder and President at Sipology by Steeped Tea!

This company is proof that a single cup of tea can change your life.

In the summer of 2007, I suffered a painful miscarriage and traveled to Nova Scotia, Canada, to grieve. While I was there, I had my first ever cup of loose-leaf Earl Grey de la Crème tea, and for the first time in weeks, I felt better. I loved everything about it; the smell, the appearance and the taste!

I needed to share, not only this wonderful tea, but how it made me feel, so I brought a bunch home and hosted tea party after tea party. My friends and family all loved it too! I developed the idea for Steeped Tea – now Sipology – and the parties became so popular that our first consultant joined in 2007, and she’s still with us today.

As the business grew, so did our family. I had my daughter a few years later, and my second a few years after that.

Then, in 2012, when I was pregnant with my son, we pitched the business on Dragon’s Den (the Canadian version of Shark Tank). The dragons were so inspired by the idea that a single cup of tea can empower people that it ignited a bidding war. In the end, we accepted a generous offer from dragons Jim Treliving and David Chilton, and the business took off from there!

Thanks to Jim and Dave’s support, and the hard work of tens of thousands of consultants across the USA and Canada, today Sipology is not only North America’s prestige tea brand, but, more importantly, we are a family business that empowers a talented and diverse community of Sipologists to make their dreams come true every day.

Whether you’re looking for an opportunity to earn extra income, or wanting to change your life in every way, you belong at Sipology. This journey has taught me that a cup of tea CAN change your life, and your time is now. I invite you to get started today!
