Sara Stender is the empress of loose-leaf tea. She is the founding CEO of 3 Mountains, LLC., the Founder and Executive Director of Africa Healing Exchange, and the owner of Tima Tea. After learning about the Rwandan genocide at the age of 22, she was on a mission to help the Rwandan people and ecomony. By 2012, she founded the Africa Healing Exchange and in 2016, 3 Mountains and Tima Tea were born. Tima Tea currently offers several organic tea products including black tea, green tea, tulsi lemongrass tea, silver tea, and white tea with several new flavors expected to hit the market soon.
Sara joins me today to discuss how the Rwandan genocide inspired her mission to bring direct Rwandan tea to the US while helping to improve the Rwandan economy. She explains the difference between bag tea and loose-leaf tea and explains how tea bags were actually created by mistake. We discuss the unhealthy side effects of drinking bag tea and how sales from Tima Tea helps grow the Rwandan economy and inspire communities. She also shares some of the latest ventures and products Tima Tea expects to release this year.
