Join me this week as I sit down with the incredible Simon Cheng, the founder and CEO of Pique Tea. Simon shares his powerful story about his own health battle, what ultimately brought him to be a wealth of knowledge in medicinal plants, breathwork, and the healing power harnessed within our body. You will learn that not all tea is created equal as Simon dives into the uses for a broad variety of teas utilized in Eastern traditional approaches, as well as how Pique Tea is changing the game for both purity and convenience. This is a conversation engrained deep in the world of wellness, uniting old practices with modern people to progress their health, fasting and meditation practices.

Simon Cheng is the Founder & CEO of Pique. In his 20s, Simon went through a decade of health issues that left him with staples in both lungs and a screw in his jaw. Celebrating his 30th birthday with a tube for delivering antibiotics directly into his heart valve, he said "NEVER AGAIN" and took back control of his health. After a three year journey around the world studying with masters of medicinal plants and breathwork, he healed himself and has never been healthier and happier. 

Pique is the culmination of everything he's learned about medicinal plants and breathwork and it's Simon's mission to share it with the world. The brand of choice for world-leading doctors, nutritionists, fitness gurus, Pique delivers the world’s most powerful superfoods extracted via cutting-edge science for unparalleled health benefits. They even Triple Toxin Screen for pesticides, heavy metals, and toxic mold commonly found in plants. Every Pique product is effective, pure, and accessible (zero prep required!).

Simon earned his undergraduate and masters degrees from Harvard and Stanford and is the youngest member of Harvard School of Public Health's Nutrition Roundtable.
