Celesté is founded by Anubha Jhawar. Anubha's tryst with tea began at an early age. She looked forward to accompanying her father, Manoj Jhawar, a master tea taster, on his numerous tea tasting expeditions. She spent a good part of her childhood in and around the sprawling tea estates that dot the foothills of the Himalayas in Darjeeling, West Bengal. Enjoying her time amidst the tea bushes, she became quite familiar with the deft plucking of the two leaves and bud that give every tea its unique flavour. Celesté stems from a genuine love for teas, and a curiosity to experiment with blends.
