This 26-Yr-Old Built A Tea Store & Company In Australia Selling Just Chai

It’s never too late to chase your dreams and well nothing can come your way if you’re passionate about something. 26-year-old Uppma Virdi is an Indian-Austrailian lawyer who started her tea store called Chai Waali 2 years back with an intent of serving Indian tea.

First Things First

In a short span, this picked up and has got a stupendous response. Recently, Uppma was awarded the Businesswoman of the year at the 2016 Indian-Australian Business Community Awards (IABCA)-2016. She got this idea while doing her job at a law firm.

Uppma recalls how her Grandfather, an aesthetic doctor taught her the art of making healthy herbal tea. Uppma’s love and passion for it brought her this far. The Chandigarh girl owns an online tea store which sells a variety of tea-related products such as kettles, strainers and even chocolate made of tea.  She occasionally even conducts workshops where she teaches tea enthusiasts the art of making aromatic tea.

At the recent Melbourne Tea Festival, she told the media about expanding and taking Indian tea to other parts of the world as well. Nothing makes us happier to see our culture appreciated at such a large platform. You go, girl!
