The colonial roots of the tea industry are still discernible in its etiquette and mannerism. It is reflected in everyday lives and the general milieu. “It takes courage to run the business while also breaking the excessively hierarchical colonial structure on which the business resides. But one has to look beyond business sometimes,” Mr. Rajeev Baid, Founder & CEO at Evergreen Tea Group added.
