The idea of Gurieli was born in 2008. Two years of intensive work with the production managers, workers and farmers, financial institutions, government officials and international partners – marketing companies, vendors and consultants followed. And in 2010 the first packs of packed, branded Gurieli, made of premium quality green tea leaves could be found in all shops across Georgia.

We see ourselves as partners with our valued customers, employees and community, promoting healthier lifestyle and helping them to lead happier lives.
