ecoming tea farmers was not something we had always dreamed of – we had successful corporate careers and no real pressure to make a complete change in our lives. Our journey started with a crazy idea and a series of coincidences following that.
You can read the full stories from each of us in our blog, but let’s just say that we didn’t have a lifelong dream to become tea farmers and there were no dramatic moments of “clarity” that descended on us. There were also moments of doubt when we were intimidated by the idea of exchanging our office attire for rubber boots. A few left our team halfway through and there were others that joined later, but in the end, the unreal story of the abandoned tea industry of Georgia really got to us and our passion was bigger than our fear. So, we left our corporate careers in the Baltics and started as tea farmers in Georgia to give our part in brining Georgian tea back to the map.
