Meet the Team

Tanvir Sidhu

The face behind First Sip of Tea.

Tanvir would be voted a superlative of “most likely to overachieve” in all aspects of this company. He has been dedicated to making this product nothing less than perfect for our customers and community from the very beginning.

Creating “The Spice Hut” company in 2004 with his mother Mundir Sidhu, Tanvir has since had a driving passion for excellent products and progressive ideas.

When not at work, Tanvir is most likely to be blasting music from his stereos with his partner in crime, his dog Rocky. Or shooting photos with his brother whenever he can.

Mundir Sidhu

The reason that all of this is possible is thanks to Mundir.

She is the creative mastermind behind all of our flavors and blends, and has crafted the most excellent ingredient combinations we have to offer.

Founder of “The Spice Hut” company from her passion for blending and creating, Mundir has worked hard to deliver outstanding products to our customers.

Although she is a creative genius, she would probably tell you her most proud achievements are her children and grandchildren. In between blending and working hard, Mundir always finds an opportunity to sneak away and excitedly FaceTime her granddaughters.

Charles Lewis

Our technological hero. Manufacturer of this here website, and all things html.

We consider Charles the man of many trades and skills in this company. His superlative would be “most likely to offer help in any aspect no matter how busy he is.”

Charles is one of the original chai concentrate brewers, and has seen this project through from the beginning.

Lover of cybersecurity and video games, and self-proclaimed “nerd”, Charles is an optimistic, problem-solving, and invaluable member of our team.

Emily Erskine

Emily is our writer, content creator, and social media go-to. Her work ranges from product descriptions, to website organizing, and reaching out to the community. As well as making a mean cup of chai.

When asking Emily what she does for the team, her answer will 9 out of 10 times be “I like to make things pretty, and I like to meet you all!”

When not online, you’ll probably find Emily cuddled up with her cat watching films and eating sweets... her two vices.
