Born In. Made In.

Just like you, we were born in India and made in the US. We’re more than tea. We’re a community that belongs to you.

Born In. Made In.

Just like you, we were born in India and made in the US. We’re more than tea. We’re a community that belongs to you.

Our Philosophy

authenticity

Authenticity

Just like you, we are true to our roots. Whether we are born here or back home, we all carry the distinctly sweet and familiar smell of that earth. We might live in the US, but our culture, our ways and our conventions are unmistakably Indian. That’s why we have real, karak-tasting instant teas. So even if we are in a hurry, the flavor is never missed out.
tradition

Traditions

Just like you, we value traditions. Whether it’s sticking to the customs and celebrating the holidays we’ve grown up with or creating new rituals in our adopted home, traditions keep us connected to what’s important. That’s why we have the finest loose tea to celebrate the ever-important tea making ritual, one cup of chai at a time.
hybirdity

Hybridity

Like you, we are a blend of two different cultures, two distinct ways of living, two individual ideas. We bring together the vibrant, unique sense of India with the limitless possibilities of America. We’re proud of the extraordinary hybrid blend that gives our tea that special flavor. That is why our tea is chosen from the finest tea leaves in Assam in India and produced in state-of-the-art facilities in the US.
trailbrazers

Trailblazers

Just like you, we charted our own course. When we came to the United States, there was no way to get fresh, authentically Indian, great tasting tea. The only tea available was shipped from India, sitting in containers over months and losing their flavor and freshness. So, we decided to do what had not been done before. In 1981, we launched Tea India and became the first tea brand established by an Indian immigrant in the country.

Our Stories

Just like every single tea leaf that makes its journey from the hills of Assam to your tea cups, our individual journeys are unique and remarkable. Whether we grow up here, or choose to make it our home, each of us has a story to tell. Discover some incredible stories of incredible people, who just like us, and you, are the true embodiment of Born In, Made In.


Ushna

Ushna

I was born in Long Island, NY and raised in Houston, TX. I was fortunate enough to to grow up in such a diverse city and have exposure to many different cultures. My parents are from Pakistan and I cannot remember a day that passed by without their morning cup of chai. Now as a parent myself, I look forward to my cup of comfort that consists of Tea India tea bags every morning. My 3- year-old son likes to take a sip or two as well. Chai is something that we take really seriously in our home because we believe a good cup of chai can really make everything better.

Sruthy

I’m Sruthy! I was born and raised in India and moved to the US in 2015 after getting married. It was an exciting and opportunistic phase of my life, but it was hard in the beginning especially having our family far away. As the years passed by, it became normal and we grew our family here in the US. We have a 2 ½ -year-old daughter and we want her to be as close to her roots back in India as possible. Tea is our staple morning drink. My mom used to give me tips on how to make the perfect tea. Every morning I grab my cup of tea and video call my mom for a chat.
