Nearly 17.5 million strong, Indians have the largest overseas diaspora in the world, with an unprecedented Indian immigrant community in the US, UK and Canada. As such, it was only fitting to bring these Diwali festivities into Indian communities in these countries to applaud and celebrate their contributions to society, business and academics.

In the US, the brand celebrated with fireworks in Houston, TX, and took over a train station in New Jersey handing out tea samples and diyas. In Canada, unique tea stalls were placed in shopping malls, while a special lounge experience was offered at the Diwali on Trafalgar Square (DOTS) celebration in London. Through these amazing experiences, Brooke Bond Taj Mahal truly brought the beauty and magic of the Indian culture to life.

Brooke Bond Taj Mahal has always stood for excellence and rigor in crafting some of the best tea blends in the Indian packaged tea segment. “Tea has seeped into the Indian culture so thoroughly that it has become a revered pastime shared from one generation to the next,” said Partha Guha, Global Business Director at Unilever International. “Every day a billion cups of tea are made and consumed in India with family and friends. We simply wanted to bring this treasured experience to the world and inspire appreciation for Indian culture one sip at a time.”

Through its 2019 celebrations, Brooke Bond Taj Mahal demonstrated that even a simple sip of tea can unite Indians worldwide. Brooke Bond Taj Mahal is available in independent/Indian grocery stores, at Walmart and other leading departmental stores in the US, UK and Canada.
