Amanqi Minutes: Tania Lodi


Tania is the personification of #GirlBoss.


What does it take to own the coolest & most Instagrammable cafe in Dubai? Great talent, hardcore dedication and a vibrant personality. Tania Lodi of Tania’s Teahouse is the embodiment of all these personality traits. Having established her own cafe earlier this year (you haven’t really tapped into the Dubai food scene if you haven’t visited Tania’s Teahouse), Tania is the personification of #GirlBoss. Sharing the same love for tea as this entrepreneurial talent, we sat down with Tania to discuss her lifestyle essentials, favourite music & the women who inspire her.
