Society Tea celebrates the Tea Society Called India
If there is one thread that binds us unequivocally as a nation, no matter what our differences may be, one ritual that truly symbolises ‘unity in diversity’, and one common language that transcends regional distinctiveness, it is our love of tea. Being innately Indian is synonymous with starting the day with a steaming cup of chai—be it a time held, homemade recipe, or that of the ever-dependent tapri chaiwallah around the bend near the office building, tea is a constant in our lives.
Known in the country and internationally for its impeccable sense of taste, Society Tea, the premium tea makers and a celebrated household name has launched its latest brand campaign, The Tea Society Called India. Society Tea’s latest brand campaign celebrates this unifying and proudly home-grown tea drinking culture across the length and breadth of our country.
