Introducing Chai & Mighty

Happy New Year!  Currently, premium teas from the Darjeeling region of India are primarily sold to traders/wholesalers who then go on to sell these teas at inflated prices to other dealers/retailers. Most of India's finest teas are exported and sold to consumers for between ~$3 – $5 a cup at luxury hotels, cafes, and restaurants.  Chai & Mighty wants to bring these teas, fresh from the estates to your doorstep. The idea is simple: to deliver the finest teas at prices unmatched in value.  We believe there are several inconveniences or "obstacles" with regard to the purchasing of tea that Chai & Mighty helps you "get around" Opacity of prices (before the tea reaches you, it's been with a producer, trader, distributor, and retailer; all of whom have...
