We’re back with the latest edition of our newsletter for the month of July! Thanks to some disturbances in Area 51, the Chandrayaan launch, the FaceApp challenge and all that’s been happening around the world, it’s taken us a bit longer than usual to reach you with this edition.
However, we have a LOT to share and bring to you from what’s been an extremely worker bee July for us here, at your favourite Chai brand.

In a special closed doors edition of Conversations over Chai, we had Ms. Sangeeta Kichlu. With over three decades of thorough strong domain knowledge, Ms Kichlu is the First Lady Tea Taster & Sommelier in India.
Through the session, she touched upon several aspects of Chai right from the history of tea to different kinds of teas and how to brew them. She also brewed her own signature teas – 5 different kinds and the floor was open to questions. Interesting questions about tea dust, different flushes of tea and such were fielded and Ms Kichlu threw some light on these while imparting a lot of her wisdom about the domain.
It was an extremely interactive session where all the employees from different business functions all came together to understand the core of Chai Point’s journey!
