Ada yang protes “kenapa sih pake bahasa Inggris terus?” Baiklah postingan ini pakai bahasa Indonesia. 😊 Havilla chapter berikutnya nih. Tahun-tahun ini perlahan tapi pasti peminat teh sudah semakin banyak, terutama di tahun 2016-2017. Terasa sekali di tahun tersebut perkembangan dari masa sebelumnya seiring dengan maraknya resto, cafe & coffee shop yang terus menjamur. Menurut pendataan kami di bulan Oktober 2018, ada sekitar 50 merek teh lokal (sekarang pasti sudah bertambah lagi), luar biasa ya! Ini tanda geliat pergerakan industri teh di Indonesia! Yayyy!
.
Masa-masa ini paling menantang, banyak jatuh bangunnya, pas lagi jatuh sejatuh-jatuhnya malah banyak ditinggal orang-orang hehe 💔 tapi ya ga apa-apa sih, memang konsekuensi dan jadi trigger buat muter otak terus. Intinya aku bilang ke tim aku gausah pusing sama rejeki, gausah pusing sama keterbatasan, yang penting kita selalu berusaha melakukan bagian kita dengan baik dan usaha buat terus berkembang.
.
Hmm hal terbaik dari perjalanan Havilla selama ini adalah bertemu dengan orang-orang yang luar biasa dan menginspirasi. Ketemu lewat event, kerja sama, workshop, bazar dll.  Prinsip aku kalau ketemu orang baru adalah “haus”, haus ilmu hehe. Soalnya yakin pasti bisa belajar sesuatu dari setiap orang yang kita temuin.
.
Banyak klien dan pelanggan yang malah jadi teman baik sampai sekarang, yang kalau kami lagi ikut event dimanapun juga pasti dateng kadang cm buat nyapa dan ngobrol bareng d booth 😭 sampe terharu dan hal-hal kaya gini jauhhhh lebih berharga daripada apapun. Terima kasih ya, kalian! Always very dear in our hearts 💞

I knew so little about starting & running a business, in some areas I might be plain dumb when Havilla was just started. I made lots of bad decisions. Ha! I didn’t have a formal working background before, apart from several casual jobs in unrelated fields (I was Psychology graduate btw). Wonder where I got the guts from! But one thing for sure, I’ve always wanted to start something related to the thing I love so much, tea!
.
Well, here are some pictures of the 1st generation of Havilla Tea. I was so much in love with kraft-paper, earthy-warm tones and crazy over a personally hand-written card. This was one of the shopping experience that I loved so much during my stay abroad, something that I really wanted to bring back home; personalization!
.
Apart from looking for sources of tea and doing tea tasting again and again, during that period I also learned a lot about little details in products & design. Thanks to @kyubstudio, I was obsessed with soy ink, recycle-able material, learned about how the hand-feel of different types of paper and so on. Such a great learning experience that I’d treasure forever. I learned to appreciate every single thought & energy put to produce something, no matter how small.
.
Those years were such a thrilling period for me because of the excitement of starting a new venture but of course a super stressful one. I gotta tell you selling tea was super hard as hell back then! For the newcomers in tea business who think it’s damn hard right now, heyy it used to be way harder, really.
.
Nobody wanted to hear this & that about tea. #sadtruth “Maybe I should have done things differently, maybe this, maybe that blablabla, all the crazy thoughts creeped in.” LOL
.
But over time, we started gaining trust & support from cafe and specialty coffee-shops who wanted to serve good tea along with good coffee. We met lots of fantastic people along the journey who were so appreciative and supportive towards what we do.
