Welcome To Holy Cow Tea
Poonam started serving festive spiced chai tea to customers as an alternative to mulled wine on cold winter days. At that time, our selection of handmade and ethically-sourced goods didn’t include premium tea. When customers started enquiring about tea suppliers, a spark was lit.
Creating chai blends is part of my culture. Across India, families mix black tea with spices such as cardamom, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, fennel seeds, turmeric and peppercorns to create blends tailored to their preferred tastes. I was excited to learn more about the history, cultures and processes surrounding tea in all its forms.
Becoming a Tea Champion
With the idea of creating Holy Cow Tea, I enrolled on a course with the UK Tea Academy. It was fascinating to discover so much about black, green, white and oolong teas. I can now appreciate the subtle changes in flavour that occur depending on the variety, blend and brewing time, as well as the cup you drink from.
Qualifying as a Tea Champion gave me the confidence to go forward and create bespoke tea blend recipes for Holy Cow. It also made me realise that there is so much more to learn. I continue to seek out opportunities to further expand my tea knowledge.
Providing Tea Experiences
We launched our range of straight and bespoke blend teas in 2020. We love to provide a unique shopping experience for customers, so began offering tea tasting experiences in our shop. These events gave shoppers a chance to sample our blends and we welcomed their feedback.
In 2017, I launched the Festival of Lights in Aylesbury. This community event brings together people of all ages and faiths in a celebration of colour, dance, music and food. In the Holy Cow Tea launch year 2020 , we had to adapt and create a virtual festival. As one of the many events, I created a Chai Tea Experience.
This proved popular and as we received requests to offer corporate tea tasting experiences, it became clear that this would add to our tea offer. We have plans to further expand our tea tasting experiences, so keep an eye out for updates!
“How I love my tea, tea in the afternoon, I can’t do without it, so I think I’ll have another cup very, very soon”
