#14: Dan Klein - Co-Founder of Tiesta Tea on the Journey of an Entrepreneur

Dan Klein

Dan Klein (Facebook, LinkedIn) is the CEO and co-founder of Tiesta Tea (Facebook, Twitter). He is remarkably positive and optimistic, which certainly are a few reasons for his success. He also surrounds himself with a great team and strives for continuous improvement and innovation, fighting against complacency.

I had the good fortune of meeting Dan not long after I was flipping through the Crain’s Chicago list of 20 in their 20’s in 2018, and we met at a time when I was in the midst of mulling over my own plans of launching a start-up, which I subsequently did (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter) – so this conversation was especially meaningful for me.

Tiesta Tea was started with the mission of creating functional loose leaf tea blends that were affordable, accessible and understandable, and can now be found in over 8000 stores including Costco, Safeway, Albertsons, H-E-B and Target, and also on their website at tiestatea.com as well as on Amazon

The company has been recognized by Inc, Forbes, BevNet, World Tea News, Fresh Cup Magazine, Beverage Daily, ABC, FOX, Crain’s and many more for their advances in bringing great loose leaf tea to the masses and also their direct ways of giving back. 

Dan has raised multiple rounds of funding for Tiesta Tea to date, and has been covered all over the media, including Inc. Magazine’s 30 under 30, Inc’s fastest growing companies in 2017 and Inc.'s Top Workplaces of 2018.
