Together with Jeremy Brown, Ajit Madan discuss the similarities between innovation and tea-making; the art, science, and intuition required in both.

Ajit Madan is an outlier, ex-investment banker, innovator, and master tea sommelier.

Ajit’s journey has taken him from a D at GCSE maths, to a successful career in investment banking. Surviving the 2008 financial crash was the prompt he needed that gave him the confidence to follow his passions; the healing arts, tea, and tennis.

As the UK’s first master tea sommelier, he is at the forefront of wellness teas; innovating and changing the way people consume the world’s 2nd most popular drink. Listen as he shares stories of custom blends, a 1000-year-old tea tree, and innovations that can be made in this ancient tradition.

Find out what makes the perfect cup of English Breakfast and learn about the science that is starting to emerge around both tea and innovation.

Serve up a cuppa and settle in as we spill the tea.
