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 pocketed a fraction of the price you pay)
- Lack of availability of premium teas (since most of such teas are sold to hotels, tea rooms, and high-end restaurants, you as the consumer never get to buy them directly)
- General lack of knowledge about tea (most people have never brewed loose leaf tea)
- Hundreds of tea shops promising you the "best" teas but most of them selling underwhelming, overpriced "dead stock"
