Feel Flavor, Feel Refresh

Dream & Origin

All Started In 2007 December, When I Was Pursuing My MBA In New York & Working Part time In It Consulting Company as Technical Recruiter & Soft Skills Trainer. Around That Time, I Met A Senior Mark Goonasekera From Sri Lanka Who Became My Good Friend From A Neighboring University. Just Over A Casual Chat We Decided To Share The Dream Of Importing Quality Ceylon Teas To All Tea Consumers Around The World Like Any Other Beginning, It All Started In A Basement Apartment Of New York & Ours Was Small Too. We Named Our Business As Hiranne Inc And Our Ceylon Tea Brand As Tea Light USA. We Started To Sell Our Teas In Several Chain Stores, Specialty Stores, Natural/organic Stores, Local Farmers Market, Wholefoods Market Etc. Working With Offshore Suppliers Was Becoming A Challenge And Mark Goonasekera Relocated To Sri Lanka To Support Our Tea Light USA Operations By End Of 2010.
