Tea is successfully on its way to becoming national drink of India. Some people’s mornings depend on the sip of strong & hot tea whereas some cannot concentrate without it. Be it a welcome drink or an office break, chai is something we all drool over!
Talking of tea, an outlet named ‘Chai Kings’ based in Chennai is making people crazy over the quality of tea they serve. It was launched in the year 2016 and is now touching heights of success. The entire story is highlighted below.
Jahabar Sadique and Balaji Sadagopan, brothers and founders of Chai Kings, mentioned that as they wanted to open a venture in food industry, they came up with the idea of ‘Chai Kings’ and after some time of struggle, it became successful.
Their outlets offer various varieties of chai such as lemon, ginger, tulsi, and masala, etc. The only thing that makes them different from other chai shops is the quality and freshness of the tea that people did not take much time to fall in love with!
Sadique says, “Our teas are made with minimal and sulfur-free sugar. When it comes to flavored teas such as lime and ginger, it’s only fresh ingredients that make the cut; no artificial flavoring here. Even the water we use is six-stage filtered. Besides, our delivery bikes are no-emission electric ones.”
Not only do they serve at their outlets but also get large orders for deliveries. They also have their own personal delivery service and their main motive is to make sure that the orders reach the client before it cools down. Otherwise, there is no point.
Anyway, what Chai do you love?
