Beveragewala Website Review & Shopping Experience

I have been an online shopper since many years now and have been buying almost everything including apparel, electronics, books, footwear and everything else which I need and is available online.

I don't even mind buying groceries and beverages from premium multi-product stores. But few days back I got to know about an exclusive beverage retailer called Beveragewala.com

The name itself was so indicative that I needed not to ask what they deal in... so here I introduce to you a first of its kind Tea & Coffee e-Retailer in India Beveragewala.com

About Beveragewala.Com
Beveragewala has been founded by big tea enthusiasts who believe that there is no good channel to view and purchase good teas and coffees in one place. This led to the idea of Beveragewala coming into existence. Beveragewala is an online provider of premium beverages, particularly teas and coffees, right at your doorstep in India. At present, they have over 35 brands and 400 products which includes a wide variety of Black Teas, Green Teas, Oolong Teas, Herbal Teas, Red Teas, Infused Teas, Coffees and so on. Since I am also a member of a Tea Loving Nation, so I feel happy that Beveragewala is entering into this Industry at a very nascent and appropriate stage.

Beveragewala.com Highlights:
  • A new registrant gets to receive reward points for his/her own registration as well as for referring friends and loved ones to join the site.
  • The orders above Rs 500 are shipped via courier partners such as DTDC, FedEx & Delhivery without any extra shipping charges and are delivered within a week's time in safe packing.
  • A wonderful feature of surprising someone with a beverage gift card is very innovative. You can instantly email a gift card to someone within denomination from Rs 50 to Rs 500 with a customized message :)
  • They have a separate section for quirky Tea Accessories that make your beverage experience a unique and memorable one every time you sit to sip your fav beverage.
  • 1 % of all sales at Beveragewala are donated to various NGOs & are used for the ‘Smiles @ Beveragewala’ initiative.
  • Interested people can brush up their beverage knowledge at Tea Guide that answers most of your queries. 
My Shopping Experience:
The website gives a crisp n cool feel in first appearance with no unwanted adverts in between the product display. The salient features regarding offers, discounts, shipping etc are highlighted in small clickable thumbnails on both left and right margins.

Some of the tea and coffee brands are the ones which give me immense satisfaction, so I am very loyal to those and always keep a good stock of the same. So when I wanted to place an order on Beveragewala, I firstly used the BRANDS tab on the homepage itself to quickly check whether my fav brands are being sold there or not. I was pleased to find a number of brands with their logos arranged separately in Tea and Coffee sections. So it made easier for me to directly click and choose my preferred items. Though I would like the Brands to be arranged alphabetically.

The DEALS tab next to BRANDS looked tempting as I didn't want to miss some cool offers and discounts. I found cool 1+1 and 2+1 offers on brands CHAMONG, LEMOR etc. And could not stop adding the Masala Tea and Black Tea in my cart. So I got two packs in price of one :)


The Tea section impressed me with following varieties wherein the figure-conscious people can treat themselves with slimming tea ;) Anyways, I picked the flavours of my choice including Tulsi, Ginger, Ilaichi etc for satiating my craving for different moods.
There is a wonderful listing of almost all types of coffees that you may think of....Just a click of COFFEE tab opens a wide array of brewed beverage. Some of the coffee brands are exclusively found on Beveragewala only. So I grabbed what my heart wanted. 

A careful look at Coffee section made the Hot Chocolate noticeable to my boy and he insisted a pack of HERSHEY's Cocoa for his special chocolate cake and obviously I had to buy one for him ;) I would love the Hot Chocolates to be placed under a separate section.

I liked the various filters provided on left pane showing Price, Quantity, Brands, Type, Flavours, Packing etc. that makes the shopping experience fuss-free and less time consuming.

I received my order well packed within 4 days of ordering. All in all, Beveragewala.com has an impressive collection of beverages to restock and replenish your kitchen rack with variety of tea, coffee and hot chocolate etc.
