021 Can modern blockchain help decolonize the most ancient trade?

Tea could be considered humanity's first international currency, and its complex entrenchment with politics, culture, and colonization reflects that history. Elyse Petersen and her team at Tealet are bringing modern technology into an ancient trade with a mind for disrupting the darker sides of the market by linking family farms with international buyers and tracing every leaf from field to cup. Elyse joins Brett on the podcast to discuss how contemporary blockchain technology can help promote transparency and equity in the tea trade, and shares some personal lessons she's learned about balancing confidence with humility on a quest for success.
