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.
