ABOUT BENOY - Founder Thunderbolt Tea (A Darjeeling Tea Company)
Originally from Majhua Tea estate in the
Kurseong region, his father along with
the rest of the family members, moved
to Darjeeling for broader business opportunities.
His Great grandfather was a tea laborer
in the tea garden and so was his grandfather.
Being a great tea lover himself, he decided
to venture into the tea business arena
since that was the only thing that was
passed on to him from generations and
what he knew best.
He started in a small way by buying tea
in small quantities from the gardens and
selling it. Now it is a decade running
and he says, "Tea is such a business
where money does not play a pivotal role,
its the inner love for tea which makes
it possible." He further adds,
"its a complicated business as
far as I know, and without proper guidance
and practical experience, it would be
like a taxi driver trying to fly an airplane.
But this does not mean 'impossible', its
a business which develops with time and
