A Love


with Tea!

Since our launch in 2014, our aim has been to provide tea lovers around the world with the finest, most premium, loose leaf, Indian teas online. We cater to you, no matter which part of the globe you belong to! The Tea Shelf curates an exquisite range of whole leaf teas, retailed in loose leaf form. We source fresh, premium teas across the finest estates of India, and deliver them to your doorstep; straight from the estates to your cup. The tea we blend is the tea we like to drink. And we hope you like it too.

We love tea, we know tea – its every kind, and through this humble venture, we want to bring you the best tea experience! We have tea experts and tea tasters on our team with vast experiences with tea and their participation is instrumental in bringing you the best! Visit us and browse through some of the finest Indian tea collections and buy them online with a single click.

The Tea Shelf is brought to you by Cha Bazaar- a subsidiary of the JM Group of Companies. Our group has been a part of the tea industry for over 150 years now, and is only growing stronger! We have valuable experience in all areas concerning tea, with four tea estates in Upper Assam, a tea engineering unit to manufacture tea machinery, a state of the art blending and packaging unit in Kolkata, and bulk tea wholesaling for the domestic and export market.

All this expertise gave birth to THE TEA SHELF, an online tea buying shop and the most ideal way to bring quality tea to your doorstep.

The Tea Shelf sources its teas directly from the tea estates in Kangra, Darjeeling, Dooars, Assam, Nilgiri and Munnar, thus reducing all delays and hassles. We give you the freshest of premium, Indian teas, which you can buy online.

We strive to bring to you a variety of teas that suit your taste buds, so that you can find your perfect cup for a bright and early morning, a lazy afternoon, to celebrate a rainy day, or just to sip on during a cold evening! Visit us today for a lovely collection of your favourite tea tastes and buy your favourite beverage online
