TAPAL's remarkable success is the joint efforts of three lively generations of the Tapal Family. In 1947, TAPAL started out as a family concern under the personal management of its founder, Adam Ali Tapal. Against tough competition Adam Ali's unique blend, later named Family Mixture, became a hot favorite and ultimately the largest selling brand in the unorganized tea market. From this favorable beginning, TAPAL moved from success to success introducing tea brands to suit every taste and pocket, sold from its retail outlet in Jodia Bazar, Karachi. The quality of TAPAL tea soon became renowned and people from all parts of Karachi started lining up at the outlet to purchase tea. For their ease, Tea distribution was initiated to retail outlets around the city. The company continued to grow under the supervision of the founder's son, Faizullah A. Tapal. Today the founders grandson, Aftab F. Tapal, manages TAPAL Tea. After studying abroad, Aftab Tapal returned to Pakistan to introduce professional management and unique production ideas to the business. A well trained tea taster and tea specialist himself, Aftab Tapal introduced new tea concepts and developed a broad range of tea blends cuisine specifically to the tastes of people throughout Pakistan. His progressive attitude resulted in giving further strength to the foundation of quality laid by his family. Today TAPAL has become the largest,100% Pakistani owned Tea Company in the country. It has modern tea blending and packaging factories, warehouses equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and a team of highly active professionals headed by Aftab Tapal.

Through research it has been found that tapal ice tea is failed due to following reasons:

Unable To Create Awareness Regarding The Ice Tea:

Tapal is unable to create awareness in the market. In Pakistan, the concept of ice tea is new and a detailed awareness marketing awareness complain is needed to cater the youth of the country.

Tapal ice tea was not available in the shelf of the retailers because distribution is everything if the product cant get the place on shelf, the company cant outsell its competitors.

Limited target market:

Another reason of tapal ice tea failure is that they targeted the limited markets in the country

Energizes you:
its moderate caffeine content stimulates energy consumption, giving your body a gentle physical boost that helps you keep going on your workouts, sports or any sort of physical activity energetically. 2.1 mg of caffeine per kg body weight that equals 147 mg for 70 kg person ingested prior to prolonged exercise delays fatigue. This amount is available in approximately 3 Tapal Ice Tea cans.

Sharpens your wits:

A combination of caffeine and thiamine in tea gives you a relaxed but fully alert state of mind and at the same time helps you to focus.

Hydrates you:
Drinking 8 glasses of water a day is a minimum requirement for a healthy, active lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy body fluid balance can become a challenge during summers, especially when you move outdoors.

Doesnt hurt your fitness :

Tapal Ice Tea contains very less calories, less than half the calories of a common cola drink. So regular consumption of your favorite Tapal Ice Tea doesnt leave you with a guilt trip and its safe to enjoy it to the limits!

An Anti-oxidant:
Body cells naturally produce free radicals (by-products) in the process of using oxygen. These free radicals are known to cause damages such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer etc. Antioxidants are substances that prevent and repair the oxidative damage to our body. Antioxidants may also enhance immune defense and therefore lower the risk of cancer and infection. A recent study revealed that 5 servings of fruits and vegetables reduce the risk of stroke by 25 percent. Ice Tea contains at least as many antioxidants as fruits and veggies such as strawberries and spinach!

Lemony goodness:
Lemon ice tea is not just another glass of soft drink; it offers the most valuable benefits of lemon such as vision and digestion improvement, relaxing of the nervous system, antibacterial properties and aid in fighting colds and flu symptoms. Most importantly, lemon contains the most effective type of vitamin C that helps prevent cancer. Tapal Ice Tea brings all these benefits to you in a delicious drink.
