Time to Tea was founded in 2015 with a goal to educate masses about health benefits of Tea. Least is known about the magical benefits varieties of Tea leaves offer to human body and how some Teas can even help replace aloepathic medicines to a more reliable and natural way. Highest quality whole tea leaves not dust, with traditional ayurvedic properties to soothe modern life issues for its consumers while providing a better, sustainable life for its makers.  We want to change the way people see and think about Tea, ONE CUP AT A TIME

Our Story

Co Founders: Supinder Singh, Sunita Kour

From Kashmir to Switzerland

Time to Tea started as a passion of two siblings who were born in Kashmir region in India. Kashmir just like Switzerland is one of the coldest region in India and has rich Tea culture. Life in the region starts with a Cup of Kashmiri Kahwa early morning and continues with consumption of Pink Tea also referred to as Sheer Chai or Nun Chai where sugar is replaced by salt as a healthy practice. Both siblings and their family carried forward the tradition even after they became immigrants in their own country and moved cities due to terrorism in the valley. This tradition always kept the spark for Tea live in them as they carried Kashmir with them wherever they travelled.

After starting her professional journey, Sunita was never happy with the roadside Tea served on streets because of the hygiene regions. This led to the foundation of Time to Tea in 2014 with the vision to make Tea a preferred global beverage for health reasons. While others Tea players and brands in India have their complete focus on Chai, the products like White Tea and other healthier forms are rarely found in the list. Sunita & Supinder stood focussed on their goal to promote health through their products. Time to Tea has spread its wings through 12 company owned stores  across globe including a Speciality Tea Room in Basel, Switzerland from where brand also offers a range of Ayurveda Teas and other products from India.

Sunita now works on expansion across the globe and Supinder remains focussed on improvement of services, consistent expansion through company owned stores & franchise expansions across India.


We believe in the healing power of nature and we exist to bring it to the world in its purest, whole and most honest form, through our high quality full leaf teas. We strive to offer the best for our consumers, not only through our products but also through education and through a sustainable business model, to help them make better choices for themselves and for the world. For us Tea is the world and we work hard to make Tea an irreplaceable beverage of the world.
