Our history

It all started during a meeting of the student life committee at the college. Etienne chaired this committee and I had just joined him as a new member. He spoke with passion about all the activities and innovations we could bring there. I was dazzled by his leadership and authenticity. It was love at first sight, both professionally and romantically. I knew that I would like to spend my life alongside him and that we would build lots of projects together.

Years later, we find ourselves still in love. We traveled the world and even started a family. On November 26, 2021, our daughter Lyla was born. A little girl full of life who always has a smile on her face. Our dream was to create a product as extraordinary as her. This is how Lyla Tea was born. An iced tea drink that is innovating the market thanks to its natural sugar: maple syrup !
