The Amazing Aroma that Fills our Day with Energy

Anamika Sahu, Managing EditorI am holding a cup of hot tea while writing the editorial for this issue. I can feel the taste and aroma of tea that is keeping me up this late at night, while bringing the old memories of me as a kid who used to drawn biscuits in tea during snacks time. But today tea/coffee is more than snacks time drink. From the roadside tappri to the seven star hotels, we never miss to enjoy those small moments or the big business times with the most favourite hot beverages of our country ­ Tea & Coffee. While there are always some kind of news abuzz on the pros and cons of these beverages on our
health, the love for tea and coffee is only increasing. From bed-tea to late night-out tea/coffee with friends/family, these hot beverages are only touching our souls deeper, creating those Kodak moments.

While our parents knew only about a handful of tea/coffee variants, today's generation is all about options. From green tea, white tea, oolong tea, black tea, Pu'erh Tea, Earl Grey, Matcha, Masala Chai, Herbal Tea, Chamomile Tea, to coffees like Arabica, Robusta, Liberica & Excelsa, Typica, Bourbon, and many others, we are spoilt of choices. While experts predict that the tea market will grow at 20-23 percent annually by 2020, the coffee market will grow annually by 6.7 percent (CAGR 2019-2023).

Addressing this growing market is our current edition of siliconIndia Lifestyle Magazine's `10 Most Promising Tea & Coffee Brands ­ 2019'. We have carefully selected some of the major producers from the industry who are manufacturing tea & coffee using both modern and traditional forms of cultivation.
