He said the users would be offered to choose between around 250 varieties of domestic and international flavours of tea and the salesperson who is equipped with milk, tea powder and induction cooker, would knock at the door of the customer and prepare the hot tea at delivery point.

He also said if the customer doesn’t like the tea, he would be given full refund. He said the company is also planning to sell samosas, kachouris, dal wada, wada pav, bread pakora and maggi online in the near future. The company exectutives are busy preparing the salesplan for these items.
