The Teesta River Tea Company has been promoted by Neeraj Verma, an ex-Hindustan Unilever (HUL) hand with vast experience in the tea industry and Unilever Marketing and Raghvendra Rao, a Chartered Accountant by profession. Verma and Rao are determined to bring tea lovers something unique. Teas blended with super fruits, flowers and herbs are healthy and tasty. Green teas with rose is a fine blend.

For them, it is an opportunity to give people something that matters to them in their everyday life. The idea now is to help people choose their favorite products from the convenience of their homes.
“Teesta River Tea differs from other brands because of the fine Silken Pyramid tea bags that preserve the aroma and flavor of its ingredients,” Neeraj Verma told ANI.
“We enable consumers to get fresh teas from the bush to the Brand within 15 days compared to other products which take around 3 months. We have no middlemen and garden fresh teas are delivered for blending and tasting from the tea estates in a week,” Verma was quoted by ANI as saying.
