It was a great experience for us to collaborate with Chef Nishant Choubey as he is well known for using his seasonal produce and fresh ingredients to add an extra kick to every dish he prepares. The goal behind this association was to spread knowledge about a healthy tea and food pairing among our consumers. Typhoo teas have been very well paired with the dishes by the Chef, keeping in mind the unique flavours that we offer. We recently ventured into herbal organic infusions and we’re the pioneers in this category. Rising awareness about wellness has given a great push to this category.
