In the pandemic of 2020, the wife and husband, Seher and Saad, realized how non-South Asians were not used to the traditional way of making chai. This involved adding a combination of spices and water, tea leaves, and milk. Instead, most people are used to prepackaged tea bags that are readily available everywhere.
At a time when the impact of the Coronavirus stressed the whole world, Saad and Seher wanted to pass on the warmth and comfort that chai gave to the people around them. So, they used the time the lockdown gave them to start something of their own.
By creating an Instagram page and a quick website, Cardamom and Co. was born with the concept of a business specializing in tea, chai, and spice sets.
In the following months, Cardamom & Co. experienced growth beyond their expectations. First, they were suddenly flooded with so many orders that they ran out of stock in time for the holidays. Since then, they have been steadily growing the business.
Cardamom & Co. package is a gift box that is a wholesome experience. With a recipe card, beautiful packaging, and customized handwritten comments, Cardamom & Co. packages let individuals prepare their tea from scratch with all the necessary ingredients in one box.
Saad and Seher work as project managers during the day; Seher works for a nonprofit, while Saad is an engineer. By night, they are aspiring business owners who plan, argue, and test chai recipes well after it is time for bed.
They strive to be a channel for happiness and connection with their passion for chai and are hopeful that their enthusiasm shows in every facet of the customer interaction with Cardamom & Co.
Cardamom & Co. also takes corporate orders to be sent to clients, which helps companies show their clients and employees that they are thinking of them. In addition, they have great staff/employee appreciation gifts that come with special customized packaging and pricing for corporate clients and bulk orders. They also do wedding favors and can customize designs to fit your wedding theme and share your story.
