Everyone's got a story

From Turmoil to Tea.


A Boy's Dream

Founder of OTeas Paresh Thakkar grew up in the green, calm and beautiful highland tea plantations of East Africa. Instantly enamoured of the beautiful greenery and the delicious beverage it represented, young Paresh dreamed of making and selling his own teas. 

Sadly, while Paresh was still a child, political turmoil forced him and his parents to abandon their family home and relocate in Britain. Despite the hardship and displacement, Paresh never gave up on his goals, starting OTeas in 2014. 

If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
if you are depressed, it will cheer you;
if you are excited, it will calm you.
— William Ewart Gladstone
