It's time for episode 14 of our podcast, the Small Business Sessions.
Four bouts of tonsillitis, 10 years mulling over the idea, and a little nudge from Enterprise Nation's StartUp Saturday one day business class gave coffee addict Esther Thompson the confidence to launch healthy tea brand, Tea Huggers.
The Enterprise Nation Classic member is a big advocate of the power of passion for what you're doing as well as the importance of surrounding yourself with the right people.
Now with a range of 10 different teas to her name (as well three more coming in September), and stockists like Selfridges and Jamie Oliver, it seems that's rather a winning formula!
So grab a cuppa and tune in to our latest podcast!
