From what we begin our day, certainly with a cup of tea. Tea not only cheers up, but also gives a charge of vivacity on all day. The first Chinese have revolen secret of a black sheet. Now tea – is an integral part of life of everyone. The market of tea in each country is so various that even the most capricious consumer can find the taste, which he likes the most. If to consider the market of tea in Kazakhstan, the results of last interrogation which has been lead by company TNS Gallup Media Asia in eleven largest cities of Kazakhstan in September ‘ 2003, have shown, that consumers of tea in Kazakhstan are 99 % of respondents.
Among them the active consumers of the given drink is 91 %, i. e. the given respondents drink tea some times a day. Looking at this I decided to research tea market in Kazakhstan in the name of Tea “Piala” of the RG Brands Company. I’ve chosen “Piala” brand because it is producing not by specialized tea-manufacturing company, but by large company, which specializes on juices. For me it is very interesting why this company (RG Brands) specialized on juices decided to produce tea not being afraid of huge competitors-companies directly specializing on tea and how RG Brands makes its tea to be succeed.

It presents two tea brands “Piala” tea and “Riza” tea. “Piala” tea The assortment of tea “Piala” is presented by granulated, sheet and packaged tea. In manufacturing of the granulated tea there is a sheet that has been brought up in northeast of India in a province Assam where make the most qualitative granulated tea in the world. Sheet is delivered from island Ceylon where grows the best in the world sheet tea. Tea ” Piala Gold ” grows in Kenya. Also it is recognized as the best tea in all Europe.
