It would be easy to say that Teafloor was born in 2016 and be done with it, but there is an honest and colourful truth that deserves more words. Here is the real Teafloor story:
4:30 AM. Dawn breaks and sun quickly covers the North-eastern sky. The men and women of the community leave their homes laden with taukri (baskets), and an unmatched desire to thrive. The ancestral knowledge of harvesting is their best tool to produce the world’s finest thing that we treasure – TEA.
On the same land of Siliguri, West Bengal, amidst vast tea gardens – there was a woman, Kanchan, who had a different connect with tea pluckers. Kanchan had a habit of observing her husband (Vivek Agarwal) work. Hooked, she couldn’t go a day without learning, tasting and discussing the infinitely complex yet completely understandable world of tea.
Over time, Kanchan squeezed out the real principles of tea industry. Entrenched by the differences between tea varietals, and by the mechanics of plucking and processing tea, she became a tea geek, and then a tea entrepreneur - Kanchan Agarwal – Founder of Teafloor.
Today, it’s her passion to connect loyal tea lovers with carefully handcrafted teas. While she continues to learn from her husband, she takes pride in the journey from seed to cup. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Mother Earth is gracious and precious. In honour of this wild and natural world, we help communities harvest the best teas across the regions. Then, our tea masters, only select the top 1% of the tea leaves from the best grown plants.
Some of our favorite teas: Tulsi ginger green tea, Chamomile green tea, Exotic rose green tea, Pomegranate green tea, Zesty orange green tea, Dharamshala black orthodox tea, Clonal Musk Darjeeling black tea, Bombay cutting chai, Cardamom Tea, and Himalayan well rolled oolong tea.
It’s our goal to move in a way that contributes positively to the nature, and the hardworking families standing by its side. Every cup served builds a lasting, sustainable livelihood for the communities surrounding our field. We believe that without these families, we couldn’t have continued to push the boundaries of the tea sector.
Each year, we give a portion of our profits to charity. And if it sounds less to us, we often move forward and work in the community. After all, for the amount of hardwork they bring in, they deserve more than just fair prices.
WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
