In 2014, working in the London office of the Boston Consulting Group, Bhuman Dani would often hit Amanzi, a tea bar in central London. That was the beginning of his fascination with tea. Dani, now back home in Mumbai, runs the gourmet tea company with co-founder Shariq Ashraf.
Less than a year-old, TGL Co’s delicious gourmet teas are already among the most popular in the city. On menus across most Mumbai cafes and restaurants, their blends are unconventional and cater to both non-tea drinkers and lovers of tea. Their first experiential store, at the Sofitel Hotel in BKC, allows you to sample the brew before you buy.
Mumbai, Apr 17 (PTI) The Good Life Company (TGL), a luxury start-up tea company offering over 300 varieties of blends, today said it has raised USD 1 million in their first round of funding.
The company is planning to use this fund for expanding its existing operations from Mumbai to tier I cities like Delhi, Bengaluru and Kolkata and to overseas markets like the US, UK, Singapore and the Middle East, TGL said in a release.
The funds are raised from restaurateur Abu Farhan Azmi and his wife Ayesha Takia Azmi.
