Our Founder: Tania Lodi
Meet our founder, Tania Lodi. Born in the US and raised in Dubai, Tania was studying psychology at University of Toronto, where she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder that caused chronic pain. During this time, she looked to tea for its wondrous health benefits. Following her bachelors, Tania took a course in mindfulness, writing a dissertation of the effects of positive thinking. This inspired her motto of positive-tea. Learning that many people were also dealing with similar health problems alongside personal and social issues, at the ripe age of 23 she decided to open a cafe in Dubai which used the notion of cafe culture an escape from one's daily grind- a space with pretty aesthetics, delicious and beautiful food, and healthy teas being promoted in a fun and unique way. Tania actively promotes female empowerment within the region and the importance of engaging in self-care to enhance one’s well-being.
Tania's Teahouse evokes a feeling of "positivi-tea". A homegrown family business, this came into full effect during the pandemic. From Tania's secret to happiness in finding joy in the little things, such as her daily cup of tea to thinking outside the box to overcome obstacles, this has been the key to the café’s survival. Tania's Teahouse believes in the value of being "instagrammable, but impactful", where social media is utilised in a way to inspire guests and evoke ultimate sereni-tea. At Tania's Teahouse guests are encouraged to reap the health benefits of the teas served whilst they lose themselves in the ambience of a pretty, calming and detoxifying atmosphere of the café. Happiness is a state of mind and the brands ethos weighs a heavy importance on: self care, being mindful and conscious of what we are putting into our bodies and showing compassion and kindness to ourselves and all things around us. We also encourage the love and care for our furry friends, thus our outdoor garden is pet-friendly, where pets get free water
