Tranquilitea, as the name suggests, brings one to the state of utter serenity. We started with the vision of making quality tea available to people across India at reasonable prices.
It all started in the land of tea, Darjeeling, where our promoter Payal belongs from. Darjeeling is one of the most famous destination of tea plantation in India, it’s roots with tea dates back to 1841 when Archibald Campbell brought with him a few seeds of Chinese tea from Kumaun region, everything else is history. From plain black tea to oolong and white tea, Darjeeling is a hub of multiple tea varieties. As a child Payal, like every other child, was fascinated by the beauty of tea plantations and tasted various varieties of teas at perfectly reasonable prices. Tea was not a luxury but a regular item of use for her.
She started her career as an educationist, turned restaurateur turned tea blender. Her desire to work in the food business comes from her late father’s unfulfilled wish, which she fulfilled by opening a restaurant in Siliguri. Overtime as a restaurateur she noticed how Darjeeling’s organic teas are being sold at extravagant prices in Delhi with little amounts of real Darjeeling tea. Prices were surged as high as a gold plated mug while quality had no comparison to the real leaves brewed in her home land. As a devout patriot of her land, and a experimentalist she decided to change the business culture of this male dominant industry by starting ‘Tranquilitea‘ as you know it today.
Unlike other brands that sell off mixed teas in the name of pure Darjeeling tea, Payal decided to experiment and make blended teas available in different packages with labels such as anti stress, anti ageing and so on…
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
One of the best teas that I have tasted till date. They have the only naturally flavored green tea that does not sting. The flavor and aroma blends so smooth. Unlike other brands since the flavoring is natural and mild, it just gives a hint which is yet so prominent. Add slightly less sugar than usual to enjoy the real flavor.
I ordered some exotic types of tea online and was very pleased with the quick shipping time, great communication from operator’s side, and cute packaging when the products arrived! I’ll definitely order from them again! Thank you, guys!
I love Tranquilitea. It has a great selection of teas, from the true classics to the more exotic collections. I will be a returning customer for ever! Especially since the shipping is so fast and comfortable!
