Colorado Social Entrepreneurs Launch Nepali Tea Traders
DENVER - (BUSINESS WIRE) - A team of Colorado social entrepreneurs today announced the launch of Nepali Tea Traders, a company that is now selling premium and rare teas exclusively from small tea gardens in Nepal across the United States. The company is the first in America to offer a full range of specialty teas grown in Nepal. Twenty teas, including blacks, greens, oolongs, whites and other specialty teas and blends, some with organic certification, are now available to consumers and wholesalers online at www.NepaliTeaTraders.com.
The company was founded by Maggie Le Beau, a former business executive and adjunct professor at the University of Denver, whose family has been involved in philanthropic work in Nepal for 12 years. Nepali Tea Traders has made a commitment to the children of Nepal and is donating its profits to the Nepal Youth Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides health care, education and social services to the children of Nepal.
"Although fine specialty teas have been grown in Nepal for decades, there has never been any significant export to the United States," Le Beau said. "We saw an opportunity to introduce these exceptional teas to American consumers, which will, in turn, help the Nepalese tea farmers and suppliers develop a thriving and sustainable industry."
