How it all started ?
In our interaction with Aishwarya Chinmay, CEO of Kashayam Blends, she shares how this beautiful nature blened idea was born.
“It all started from Ri-bhoi. My husband was posted there as a DC and we were bestowed with a lovely house and surrounding.”
“Not being much of a planned garden person I insisted on keeping the wild growths and one such nature’s blessing was the butterfly pea flower (Bneng blue blend, silver bneng).”
They had just shifted to healthier tea options that’s when white tea the delicate royal silver needles made its way to our cups.
It was an instinctive accord made them blend the two and their very first blend was born. Thirteen blends down the line it has been a journey of constant quest in the wild to ethically harvest what nature has in store.
Kashayam blends which was a mere concept driven enterprise was formalised and guided by Mr. Priyam Chauhan with his marketing skills we were leaped from a home interest to a cottage industry.
Difficulties to Glory
The real difficulty was to convince the educated and science driven people about their experience. So all our blends had to be perfected and lab tested before being launched.
And once they made that happen, they are getting orders from across India from Jammu to Bangalore and Odisha to Mumbai also UK, Bhutan, Dubai and US has been their order destinations.
Why White tea is Healthier than any other Tea ?
