I disagree with the previous posts. A PROVEN market is a good market.
Now, you are selling LOOSE tea. That is a good thing- that means you can package and brand it yourself. DO NOT sell someone elses tea-- find a good supplier of bulk teas, buy the leaves and package them yourselves.
You'll also have to build an audience-- you'll have to have a website but more importantly you'll want a catch-- do videos of tea tastings? tell a story about every kind of tea. People buy stories and cachet-- not tea...they can get that anywhere!
