Welcome to the world of Tea cafe where I would be putting light on the unique start up as using a simple and popular ingredient called TEA. We all have visited at least one cafe in our lifetime. Many of you might have visited world cafes but never wondered about the product. But the question is,
“What these cafe’s offer to customers?”
I am sure not many of us ever felt the need to analyse the product as we are in hurry to make our ends meet.
But I am here to throw lights on some facts to all the budding entrepreneurs who are yet searching their start-up idea.
The World is full of world class multinationals or multinational corporations offering coffees. Top notches are –
“Star bucks, Costa, Barista, Cafe coffee day.”
But what they have to offer apart from infrastructure, “coffee” and some of its variants like Mocha, cappuccino, espresso (short black), Double Espresso (Doppio), Ristretto, Café Latte, Long Macchiato, Short Macchiato.
Don’t you think “that’s it?”
I mean in just coffee these Multinationals have made billions of bucks.
Then why can’t we make millions by selling Tea variants?
Why isn’t there is a Multination like Starbucks with the only product as Tea?
Maybe the obvious reason is either top MNC not interested in exploring the tea market or people are not ready to taste them.
Whatever be the reason is, the world is yet to see a company selling only tea and its variants and interestingly making billions out of it.
So whose is going to take a risk, or give the world a new billion dollars company?
Yes, of course, we can also hit millions out of tea it just neither people tried nor they wondered.
Let’s have a look at the top 10 countries and their consumption of coffee and tea.
But our analysis is not just restricted to world top 10 countries. There are many lefts but unfortunately, all can’t be compared here. Because that’s not our topic.
We are going to learn the new start up by simply using TEA as a product.
So,is it a joke making million dollars selling only tea?
No, not at all, I am not in a mood to joke
“Different countries, different people like different types of tea”
I am sure you all agree with me.
Like coffee, tea also doesn’t have many variants across the globe but that doesn’t mean they can’t be made. This is the core of this article preparing various variants of unexplored tea.
[Types of Tea popular across the globe]
- Dark (also called pu’erh)
- Honey tea
- Honey Nut
- Rooibos Tea
- Mate Tea
- Blooming Tea
- Tea Blends.
Needless to write the steps of preparing these teas here as half of them we all are familiar and remaining can be found easily on the internet.
So what is important in the whole idea?
This start-up is based on exploring the variants of TEA which has a huge probability of hitting success.
Not just in developed nations which are obsessed with the COSTA or STARBUCKS but also developing nations whose masses can’t afford those expensive coffees. So let’s discuss now some of the variants that can be created.
