How To Start A Tea Business

Today, I am going to talk about how to start a tea business for less than $100. This method will help you to quickly earn extra income to begin with so you can then take your business to the next level while learning on the job.

I’ll also teach you how to source your matcha green tea at wholesale prices directly from a direct sales company… think of it as being like a tea affiliate program but one with much greater financial rewards and incentives….and you get to hang on to the customer too!

But it gets better, with the simple marketing method I’m going to show you will shortcut the trial and error process of finding match green tea customers.

With over 2.74 Billion users on Facebook, 1 Billion users on Instagram, and 772 Million Professionals on LinkedIn, you’ll never be short of customers once you learn a simple social media strategy that you can discover in Step 4.

Okay. Let’s get started…

Start a tea business


What Kind Of Tea Business Should I Start?

Speciality herbal teas and green teas like matcha are used for cleansing, weight loss, immune support, energy, calming and insomnia are very popular drinks in many countries. 

Matcha green tea is loaded with brain-boosting amino acids, bacterial-fighting antioxidants catechins and polyphenols, as well as nutrients such as flavonoids, phytonutrients, and L-theanine makes it a nutritionally sound beverage.

Other Considerations...

You could start... online matcha green tea business and become a wholesale tea supplier to stores or sell directly to customers through word of mouth advertising.

Another idea is to...

...become a direct sales consultant for a matcha green tea like Smartea to make retail sales, wholesale sales, and also leverage the efforts of others who also want to start a green tea business for under £100.

You could also...

...develop your own matcha green tea brand, but that would need a hefty upfront investment and carry risk if your matcha brand has not already been proven as a hot seller.

Another great way is to...

...socialize and sell hosting tea parties. But they’re not everyone’s cup of tea. LOL 

So in the rest of this post, I am going to focus on how to start an online organic matcha green tea business for under £100.

How Popular Is Matcha Green Tea?

Rising health-consciousness has accelerated consumption of matcha green tea across the world. Increasing awareness about skin health, immune support, healthy weight management, all day energy, improved focus and clarity are some of the matcha tea benefits expected to propel the market.

Global Green Tea Market 

The global Green Tea market was valued at US $13 Billion in 2019 and is projected to grow to US $20 Billion by 2026. The global Matcha Tea Market was valued at US $2 Billion in 2020, and is projected to surpass $4.48 billion by 2027.

So deciding to start a matcha green tea business can be a profitable way to share this kind of healthy functional beverage with other green tea lovers.


Which Organic Matcha Green Tea Do Experts Recommend?

Every matcha is different depending on the region and country it's grown in, the part of the plant used, the processing and shade growing methods. What's more, many matcha green teas are not heavy-metal and radiation tested.

However, matcha green teas that are “certified organic” have been grown through superior cultivation and have not cut corners to degrade potency and safety.

Get the word out about how great organic Smartea is to drink and the amazing health benefits of matcha green tea. 

There are literally 101 ways you can market organic Smartea. But using a marketing strategy dubbed the 'Max Method' only requires a social media profile and some simple connection strategies and scripts. It is one of the simplest ways to get your business into profit and build a team.

That said, parts of this blog are devoted to another marketing method - attraction marketing - but that comes with a steep learning curve, requires up front investment and coaching program to master new skills like setting up a blog, copywriting, building your funnel, email autoresponders, list building etc. The other approach is to put your content on social media platforms to 'attract prospects. It's all explained in the Social Retail & Enrollment Blueprint and in the Facebook Group.

Another way is to use the Max Method because you bypass all that extra work that's involved.

Of course, depending on how fast you get things going, your skills and mindset, it could take you anywhere from a few days to a full month or more to make money.

From experience, I would say a month is an ample time if you are serious about building your matcha green tea business online.
