I came across azure tenant. I am a bit confused as to how Azure tenant is different from an azure subscription? Aren't both of the same referring  to the same thing? Somebody please clarify! Thanks.

Azure tenant is a dedicated and trusted Azure Active Directory's instance. 

It is automatically created when your organization signs up for a Microsoft cloud service subscription, such as Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Intune, or Office 365. 

An Azure tenant represents a single organization.

Azure tenant is a directory, whereas subscription is an object that represents a "folder" where you can put in your resources.

Subscriptions are tied to tenants. A single tenant can have many subscriptions, but not vice versa is not possible.
