Tea People was founded by Neeraj and Vishaka, a husband wife duo who hail from the beautiful tea growing region of Darjeeling in India and have been living in the UK since 2005.

According to Neeraj, “Being dreamers, we had very special “pyjama party” – meetings where we discussed our world changing ideas! Our light bulb moment came during one such  party where the aroma of our Darjeeling inspired us to form a social enterprise that would use tea as the medium for bringing about a positive social change.”  The idea was to bring the taste of a wide variety of fine, specialty and flavoured tea to the tea lovers of the world and give them a chance to change the lives of the poor children and empower communities living in and around the tea growing areas.This is how Tea People was born!

Tea People is hence set up as a social enterprise and have committed to put aside at least 50% of its net profits towards its social causes.
