Chai Point’s goal is to create an aspirational brand for its young consumers for whom tea drinking is a part of their daily routine. We believe in building technology to rocket our accessibility and convenience goals for the brand and now will also be deploying a bulk of the investment proceeds towards this,” shared Bijral.
