She started her career working at Accenture as a software developer but grew to be a businesswoman in the tea industry. She enhanced her branding and marketing skills by working with brands like Gucci, Net-a-Porter, Clinique, Swarovski, etc. during her master’s in Brand Management & Marketing in Paris. Her journey started with developing and leading a department in her family business which led to a 613% growth in revenue in only 4 years. It was during this time she learnt about the struggle of a tea worker, and micro-plastics in the tea bags. She discovered the experience of tea consumers through her time living in various countries(France, UK, China, USA) and soon came to a point to solve these issues with her own brand-The Tea Heaven.

The Tea Heaven is a women-owned and led focusing on a sustainable and healthy cup of tea. The brand has grown with a presence in 5+ countries, sold 10 million+ cups and gained 6000+ 4.8 star reviews under Harshada’s guidance.
