Our Founder: Tania

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.

My chronic health journey has really helped me grow and re-prioritize what’s important-

My biggest personal success metric I care about right now is having a healthy nervous system. Doing the inner work and having a healthy mind, body and soul. Tania's Teahouse has given me purpose and space to spread awareness on holistic health through teas, adaptogens inclusive food offerings, and the power of spaces and how they can provide a safe haven from your daily grind. I wanted Tania's Teahouse to utilize the notion of being 'instagrammable but impactful', where people leave their worries behind, or put their stresses on pause, where our interiors and ambience provide a soothing experience that allows you to feel happy, relaxed, and mindful; sometimes our job is just to sit in our heart space, be creative and kind and just to be human."
