Lifetime entrepreneur, Bill Beyer is our guest this episode. He and his family are building a world-class tea company. Savoy Tea is the third venture that Bill has started, and he’s on his way to creating one of the first billion dollar brands without raising a dollar of capital.


Savoy Tea has 3 (soon to be 5), locations where they create a customer-centric atmosphere and serve their house-blended teas. They source tea from tea gardens and family farms all over the world: China, Japan, India, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, South Africa, Argentina… And yes, Bill is actually a certified Tea sommelier.
