Pratik Rijal is a 3rd generation tea producer and the co-founder of Nepal Tea which directly brings organic teas from Nepal to the American market while empowering smallholder farmers in the process.

After working in the corporate sector for about 4 years, he left behind a safe corporate job to dive headfirst into the world of tea. These days, he is busy cooking up different ways to share our delicious brew with as many people worldwide as possible. Fun Fact: Pratik was born on International Tea Day.
