Our Origins: 
Founder Sheena Brady started her first business in 2013, Tease Tea, with the aim to bring her passion for high quality tea and women’s empowerment together in an impactful way. Little did she realize, Tease Tea would serve as the catalyst to her rapid growth as a leader and the foundation of  a social impact organization that would support hundreds of underrepresented women through accessible funding, mentorship and a community, all while challenging the traditional restrictions of what how  successful leaders look, sound and operate.
