M:- How was Abu Tea created?
-My friends have inspired me to create Abu Tea. They used to ask me what to take to foreign countries that would tasteful and would also represent Georgia. After long thought, I decided to develop this idea and my friend artist Lika Kakhidze assisted me in developing the design of new Georgian tea.
M: – How is the tea called and where do you buy raw materials?
-At this stage, I produce only three varieties: Black, green and Berry Tea, without supplements and colorants. I plan to produce tea bags too. I buy raw materials in Guria and Imereti.
M:- What about your price policy and what channels do you use for sales?
