Executive summary

Today the importance of project work is increased in business world. Field work is useful tool together information through which various decisions can be taken

My topic for study is “Consumer behaviour towards consumption of tea”. This survey will focus on attitude towards tea. I have selected Naranlala College as the case study the topic.
I selected tea as it is one of the most used and familiar product which is used by people for relaxing themselves. The interest of people in using this product becomes even more important as it is a daily use product. Hence my interest to study Consumer behaviour towards consumption of tea became quite a more pressing. Tea has become one of the most common needs of the consumers. More and more people using tea, so it will be easier to collect information within the limited time and lees cost

The primary data will be collected by survey through personal interview. A structured questionnaire will be prepared. Other secondary data will be collected through internet. Sampling method to be used is of non-probability type as it is easiest and simplest way to conduct survey, then an analysis of collected data will be done by percentage and graphically method. On that basis conclusion will be derived.

With the help of this survey, I will come to know about the factors which affect the consumers’ attitude towards consumption of tea and about the brand that has significant market share in industry. Even the purchasing frequency, place from where they prefer to buy, usage rate etc. shall be studied in this project. An appropriately designed project report shall be prepared on the basis of the work done during the project study.

Literature review

My topic is on “Consumer behaviour towards consumption of tea”. I had taken the data or other information regarding my topic through the website, magazines or through the news paper

I had taken the research methodology from the book “marketing research”.

I had taken the information of the project from the websites. I had taken history of the tea – www.Google.com

Despite of the fact that learning is all pervasive in our life, psychologies do not agree on how learning takes place, how individual learn is a matter of interest to marketers.

Introduction to tea

Tea is a caffeinated hot beverage, an infusion made by steeping the dried leaves or buds of the shrub camellia sinensis in hot water. In addition, tea may also include other herbs, spices, or fruit flavours.

The word “tea” is also used, by extension, for any fruit or herb infusion; for example, “rosehip tea” or “camoline tea”. In cases, where they contain no tea leaves, some people prefer to call these beverages “tisanes” or “herbal teas” to avoid confusion. This article is concerned with the “true” tea, camellia sinensis.

The tea plants are one of the camellia family (camellia sinensis) which is indigenous to china and India. The leaves are stiff, shiny and pointed, and the flowers, which resemble the buttercup in shape, are white with golden stems. The plant requires a warm, wet climate with at least so inches (135mm) of rain a year and well-drained soil. It grows at varying altitudes up to 7,000 feet.

The quality of tea depends on climatic conditions. At higher altitudes the growth of the plants is slower and the crops smaller, but the quality will generally be better only the bud and two top leaves from each stalk are picked for processing.

Like win, each crop reflects the character of the region in which it is grown soil, climate, the amount of rain and time of year the tea is plucked influences its character. China is credited with originating tea cultivation, and tea plants now grow in about 30 countries. However the best quality teas come from India.

History of tea

According to Chinese my theology, in 2737 BC the Chinese emperor, shen nung, scholar and herbalist, was sitting beneath a tree while his servant boiled drinking water. A leaf from the tree dropped in to the water and shen nung decided to try the brew. The tree was a wild tea tree

Conversely the Indian and Japanese legends both attribute and discovery of tea to bodhidharma the devout Buddhist priest who founded Zen Buddhism. The Indian legend tells how in the fifth year of a seven year sleepless contemplation of Buddha he began to feel drowsy. He immediately plucked a few leaves from a nearby bush and chewed them which dispelled his tiredness. The bush was a wild tea tree.

From the earliest times tea was renowned for its properties as a healthy, refreshing drink. By the third century AD many stories were being told and some written about tea and the benefits of tea drinking, but it was not until the tang dynasty (618AD-906AD) that tea become china’s national drink and the word ch’a was used to describe tea

The first book on tea “ch’s ching”, circa 780AD, was written by the chines author Lu yu. It comprises three volumes and covers tea from its growth through to its making and drinking, as well as covering a historical summary and famous early tea making utensils and some say that the book inspired the Buddhist priests to create the Japanese tea ceremony. The spread of cultivation throughout china and Japan is largely accredited to the movement of Buddhist priests throughout the region. The modern term “tea” drives from early Chinese dialect words-such as tchai, cha and tay- used both to describe the beverage and the leaf known as camellia sinensis to western botanists, tea is an evergreen plant of the camellia family
