Madhu Jayanti International, India’s largest manufacturer of tea bags and major value-added tea exporter, has delivered a huge consignment of Assam green tea to US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, urging him to drink the beverage to become ‘less extreme’ as it is never too late to ‘cleanse’ himself.
“The consignment containing 6,000 bags of Assam green tea, which is sufficient stock for four years, has been delivered to the Trump Tower in the New York City. Our company believe in the power of tea. We believe green tea is good for Mr Trump,” Madhu Jayanti International executive director Sumit Shah told FE.
The 70-year-old Kolkata-based company, with a turnover of R500 crore, delivered a premium range of green teas under its well-known “Te-A-Me” brand with a message, “Mr Trump, it’s never too late to cleanse yourself.” “We see a lot of chatters happening, and many of these are taking a harsh view on Trump. But we have taken a funny way to tell him to be less extreme,” Shah said.
The company also created a website, www.teafortrump.com, where it launched a video that says, “Dear Mr Trump, namaste from India, we are sending you lots and lots of natural green tea. It fights against harmful free radicals. It helps purify mind and body and regain a healthy balance.
It has also proven to make people smarter. Please Mr Trump, drink the tea. For your sake, for America’s sake, for the world’s sake.”
“Donald Trump has the whole world worried. We can’t stop him. But may be we can change him,” the video added.
