About Tea and I®
Founded in 2019, Tea and I® is a luxury tea and tea accessory company based in New York City. Owned and created by Niya Vatel and her husband Gladimir Vatel, Tea and I® began with a unique vision. Niya had loved tea since she was a small child playing with her grandmother’s tea set. It was not until she was six months pregnant that she realized; not only did she not have a favorite tea out of the dozens in her cabinet, but she also wanted something to help her bounce back once she had her baby boy.

Thus, the vision for Tea and I® began. Combining all of the greatest components of Niya’s favorite flavors, Tea and I® teas are produced using high-quality herbs that not only taste amazing, but have a plethora of health benefits to help you keep healthy. Available in sachets or loose leaf, Tea and I® teas are featured in the “Sips by Tea” Subscription boxes, and have quickly become a crowd favorite. Tea and I® has begun to expand in 2020, creating new blends and releasing a line of luxury tea accessories available online.
