The brainchild of Shri Sureshchandra Jivraj Shah, the brand has its humble beginnings rooted in a small shop that was established in the year 1981, which sold a variety of loose tea. All the blends of the tea had distinct flavor and quality, however blend no.9 was the highest-selling product from where Jivraj9 derived its name. The company now offers packaged tea in various sizes to tailor to the unique requirements of every customer.
