The tender tea bud relaxing between two mellow leaves with roots beneath a juicy stem is rewarded to deliver the most authentic tea experience. Carefully handpicking these little bundles of joy from the exotic tea estates has always been a cherished job and pouring this organic tea experience right from the tea estates of Darjeeling, & Assam and organic Tulsi from Garhwal is First Bud Organics, a premium tea brand nestled amidst mountainous terrain of Dehradun. Infusing the magic of premium pluck, ‘bud and two leaves’, the brand uniquely blends herbs with green teas that enhance health benefits and subdues the tea’s natural bitter taste. Believing that tea tastes best in loose form, First Bud Organics brews whole leaf tea that has best aromatic taste and releases extracts slowly, unlike tasteless broken leaf, fanning and dusty tea mixtures. Protecting the natural produce inside-out is the brand’s highly inviolable packaging carried out in the pristine Himalayan region of Uttarakhand that keeps the rich minerals intact, devoid of chemicals, pesticides and pollution.

Unique Tastes, Quality Benefits

First Bud Organics fosters profound expertise in producing finest tea, for which it follows four step stratagem – R&D process (researching final product as per customer’s expectations), Quality Checks (standardized and legit practices), Production (receiving raw material to shipping final product) and Sales (online and offline presence strategies). “Our products undergo quality controls at various stages. We also make sure conditions are hygienic and moisture is not absorbed
in the process. As the batch sizes are small, we ensure to meet quality expectations of our customers,” asserts Mitresh, who has driven the brand like one-man-army with an optimistic outlook.

The Collaborative Cup of Tea
Working hand-in-hand with NGOs for delivering social assistance, First Bud Organics provides common platform to women development cooperatives in the Himalayan region and curtails pesticides usage with the aim of producing quality, affordable products for consumers whilst creating new opportunities for farmers. Besides, the brand actively leverages traditional approach for processing raw produce into value-added foods and ingredients, and ensures increased shelf-life of each product produced. Post receiving stellar response for Pahadi honey tea range, First Bud Organics is investing heavily on product innovation and processing niche flavours with honey as key ingredient, namely ajwain honey, eucalyptus honey and mustard honey.

Branched in New Delhi with presence on major online retail stores, First Bud Organics receives 2000+ monthly orders and has been selected for Amazon Launchpad for Startups. It has plans ready for opening an e-Commerce store and having supermarket tie-ups, followed by initiating blueprints for expanded offline stores.
