Teabox is Thinking Outside the Box

It is interesting how we could see paradigm shifts in different traditional areas of business, e.g., distribution of razor blades, and now the time has come to the tea industry. The challenge is to do something about the supply chain, in order to get fresh, high quality tea to the end customer in a timely manner and economical way. Here are excerpts from Saritha Ray’s article, Teabox Seeks to Bring India’s Teas Into Modern Era:

As is the case with other successful e-commerce sites, technology forms the core of Teabox’s online operations. Algorithms predict demand based on such factors as past sales, internal ranking of tea varieties and pricing. Information about a tea’s picking date, season and origins is made available to online customers.

“Tea is a time-sensitive product, but the industry’s supply chain is quite broken and has many intermediaries,” said Prashanth Prakash, a partner at Accel India, which along with Singapore’s Horizon Ventures has provided some $1 million in early-stage funding to Teabox. “The business is ripe for disruption, both in terms of price and quality,” he said.

Celebrating Young Entrepreneurs on Lemonade Day

I will celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit on May 1 by serving my own twist of a half-and-half lemonade with iced Russian Caravan tea.

Prep. for Lemonade Day on May 1Vine.

1/2 black tea + 1/2 citrus = hole in 1. #teaftw

1/2 black tea + 1/2 citrus = hole in 1. #teaftw

For inspiration, watch the film with Will Arnett on how Arnold Palmer created his own “lemonade-and-iced tea beverage that has become a piece of Americana.”

I hope that the true American spirit will come to field of business and I will therefore organize an event on Lemonade Day with my new project called Americanized. Here is an excerpt from the article, Government regulation: Lemonade Day done wrong, by Nicolas S. Martin:

Lemonade Day is promoted as a way to “inspire a budding entrepreneur!” But it is actually a dispiriting lesson about how hard it now is to become an entrepreneur, whether you’re an adult or a child. It is about how even the most harmless enterprise, the humble lemonade stand, has been sacrificed on the altar of government regulation.

(Los Angeles Times, May 1, 2011.)

Selling lemonade shouldn’t be a crime! Did you attend the Lemonade Freedom Day in August, 2012?

Cheers!

Boston Afternoon Tea Party on December 16

You are welcome to join us on December 16 for a celebration of the Boston Tea Party on December 16, 1773. We want to commemorate the Sons and Daughters of Liberty with a toast and an afternoon tea party, serving Boston Harbour Tea and delicious stuff with a hint of “Chai from Persia“… Martin Lindeskog of GOT-Tea-Party.com, will be announcing a new tea blend, GOT Harbor Tea.

Here is an excerpt from the song, Boston Tea Party by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band:

Are you going to the party?
Going to the Boston Tea Party?
Going to the party?
Going to the Boston Tea Party?
Going to the party?
Going to the Boston Tea Party?
Going to the party?
Going to the Boston Tea Party?

Redcoats in the village
And there’s fighting in the streets
The Indians and the mountain men
They’re talking when they meet
The king has said, he’s going to put a tax on tea
And that’s the reason y’all Americans drink coffee
