Set up by Atulit and Srinidhi Chokhani in January 2015, The Tea Shelf focuses on premium Indian loose-leaf teas in White, Green, Black and Oolong. Encouraged by the growing popularity of tea globally, and their own love for the beverage, the duo took to researching the potential in some of India’s finest teas.

They pride themselves on retailing all teas in their pure and authentic form as single estate teas {non-blended and non-flavoured}. These premium handpicked teas are sourced from across India {particularly Assam, Darjeeling, Kangra, and Nilgiri} in small quantities, in order to ensure that only the freshest teas are delivered to customers. All the teas are described in detail, with a flavour profile, experience, tasting notes, origin, year, grade, and flush.

As for packaging, The Tea Shelf avoids conventional methods. All their teas are stored in a dehumidified environment when received, and packaged in consumer vacuum packs. All teas are packed in 100gm pouches, so that wastage is low {at their end, as well as the consumer’s.} What really makes us recommend The Tea Shelf is their faith in their product. In fact, if you don’t like their tea, you can return it if only 10% of the order has been consumed.

They also offer a range of deals and discounts, and are currently running a “Friendship Day Giveaway”, where a lucky few can win a free Tea Shelf goodie bag. Order from them once, and The Tea Shelf will hook you up with a 10% discount on your subsequent orders! And worry not, all deliveries within India and international deliveries above INR 1899 are free of cost. We are logging on right away. Are you?

Price: INR 350 onwards
