The company and Its Journey - Aromica Tea
Based in Guwahati, Aromica Tea was established in Nov 2018. The startup, founded by Mr. Ranjit Baruah is involved in the Curation, production, and manufacture of value-added teas and was launched in Kolkata and Mumbai at The World Tea & Coffee Expo. Aromica Tea came into existence with an initial investment of around Rs. 10 lakhs and in a two-room office (10 x 16 ft) situated in the backyard of the family’s residence at Guwahati.
‘The concept of curating value-added teas using local herbs and spices was a unique and risk-taking decision as this market was a niche market and not well explored.’, the founding Director, Mr. Baruah narrates the startup story. ‘We were convinced that consistency in quality and a good tea would always be appreciated by the customers. We moved ahead with this belief and made 5 blends initially.’
The conviction of the founders and the excellence of the tea was captivating for the customers. The initial positive response from the customers encouraged the venture to come up with more exclusive blends.
Having worked in tea gardens in a managerial capacity for almost 20 years and being posted in various places across Assam, Ranjit knew the locale and the local farmers which helped him to decide the trajectory. Accessibility to various small farmers producing excellent teas in the remote areas of Assam acted as the stepping stone carving the path for the startup to move forward. ‘We connected with more local farmers to procure varieties of tea and tried creating different blends.’, he said.
His personal experience of tea-tasting, the various processes of tea production, Ranjit’s Hotel Management degree, and his experience of 20 years of working in the hotel industry became the perfect blend while establishing Aromica Tea which came in handy during the process and hence the company was founded and has been steadily serving it’s customers ever since.
