HOUR DETROIT / March 2014
It’s Detroit’s year for tea.

Elias Majid is working toward a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition & Food Science at Wayne State University this fall, but the young man isn’t waiting for someone to hire him out of college. He is taking matters into his own hands with his own company, Eli Tea.
“I decided to create my own job and start this company,” Majid says.
