Retail tea brokers in Guwahati, Jalan’s Tea has been supplying Assam, Darjeeling and Arunachal tea to tea-loving city folk for 40 years. Once a supplier to the Raj Bhavan; the store has served many different reputed institutions and events of importance across Assam.

The owner, Ashok Kumar Jalan shares, ‘There weren’t many retail shops selling tea in Guwahati during the 70s and 80s. My brother, Jain Jalan, was actively involved with the Guwahati Tea Auction Centre, so I had some knowledge about it. There is a GMC built market complex located right in front of my shop now, which used to be an Assam type house. It was a small tea retail shop owned by Narayan Das. I used to observe all the customers coming and going, and it naturally came to my mind that I start a retail tea store of my own.’ Another reason why Ashok Jalan thought of opening up shop was to have people taste quality tea. ‘Personally, I have tasted bad tea in many places across the city. I never liked how the low grade teas sold loose in the market tasted. Assam is known for its tea worldwide. I believe that the people of Assam should get to taste and savour the best quality tea.’
