Tea is said to be a language in itself. Unlike any other drink, it depicts freedom, serenity and inspiration. History has summoned it all with instances of tea being – “A healer to human life.” Tea is consumed across nations making its existence “symptomatic” among them. India is one of the biggest consumers of tea, and with rising awareness on tea benefits, tea consumption is sky-rocketing. Tea connects people and this connection leads to love. Keeping the above in mind, TEAFLOOR was born.
It all started a decade ago. A week before his 12th board exams, a young boy gave a demented look at the textbooks lying on his study table. Worried and confused, he closed his eyes and tried to relax but all he could feel was an intense clumsiness in his body. Sensing his frame of mind, his mother gave him a cup of tea. The boy took the cup, stared it for a while and drank it.
The same boy, Vivek Agarwal, after 12 years sips on a cup of tea and remembers it all. Life never stops taking exams, it was board exams then and now it was called the Life exams!!! But Vivek is a fighter and knows how to conquer this battle of exams. With every sip of tea he throttles down his food pipe, his subconscious slowly curtails an idea into his conscious mind. With the last sip, Vivek closes his eyes and relaxes.
He jumps up again, takes a piece of paper and pens down his ideas. After a few hours of unstoppable digging and scratching all over the paper, Vivek finally relaxes and smiles. In between so many scratched words, unorganized numbers and unreadable sentences (which only Vivek could read), eight letters and two words could be seen
and the birth of something unique took place…
Entrepreneurship is an innate quality; it’s not something you can teach. Vivek Agarwal, the founder of Tea Floor, is a born entrepreneur. For Vivek, the entrepreneur journey started during his college days when he was graduating from Christ College, Bangalore. He was naturally inclined towards business and unlike others in college, he never wanted to be dependent on anyone in his life. That is how he started his first business venture, where he started selling teas to the students during exams. In a short frame of time, he managed to expand his infant business a little larger by catering more students. This particular time was very important for him because it was then that the craze for both tea and business took a hit.
Everybody has a hero in their life and the heroes are someone who shapes our instincts. Vivek was always a “Daddy Boy” and looked for inspiration in his own father. When other boys had superman, spiderman etc as heroes in their childhood, Vivek’s real hero was his Father and still is!!!
Born and brought up in Kishanganj, very close to Siliguri (land of tea gardens), Vivek was always observing the way his father worked. Being the son of an entrepreneur, he quickly grasped all the required business acumen. He believes that his father is a great influence on him and it is his blessings that he has started this venture – Tea Floor.
The exact meaning of Teafloor: “Tea lovers and Tea on a single platform.”
