DAVIDsTEA Launches Steeping Together: A Podcast for All Tea
MONTRÉAL, Nov. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DAVIDsTEA Inc. (Nasdaq:DTEA), a leading tea merchant in North America, is thrilled to announce the launch of Steeping Together, its very own podcast devoted entirely to the world of tea, and the communitea that revolves around it. Those eager to join the weekly tea party will be able listen-in on the latest conversations with tea enthusiasts from different backgrounds starting on November 12, with new episodes launching each Friday.
Inspired by DAVIDsTEA’s love for tea talk, Steeping Together is the brand’s newest platform. Wanting to re-create some of the more organic conversations that happen in the Company, with partners, in stores, and online, DAVIDsTEA looked for new ways to share its passion for tea culture, tea trivia and tea recipes beyond its 18 flagship stores, website, blog and social media. With each episode answering a specific question surrounding tea, Steeping Together offers listeners the opportunity to deep dive into the personal stories and passion behind the world’s most beloved beverage by showcasing a diverse mix of guests sharing unique stories.
For the kick-off season, host and lover of all things tea, Marika De Vienne will guide listeners through serious (but not too serious) conversations about the ins and outs of tea. With Steeping Together, the DAVIDsTEA team is ready to reach a wider community, one episode at a time.
“We are very excited to launch our very own podcast, to have a more direct and personal way to speak to our communitea globally,” said Sarah Segal, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Brand Officer, DAVIDsTEA. “There is so much more to us than just blending and sourcing tea. So much effort goes behind each tea that we bring to market, and every blend has a personal story. This platform lets us share the personal side of DAVIDsTEA, and why we do what we do. For years, we have wanted to capture the amazing conversations and learnings we have had with each other – whether with our customers and fellow tea lovers, our tea growers and suppliers across the planet, or with our online community. Steeping Together is an ideal platform to share our common passion for the people who love tea!” she added.
Steeping Together is THE podcast for anyone who knows that the most meaningful moments happen when making a connection with someone and learning to appreciate their perspective… and it’s just oh so much better with a cup of tea in hand!
