In the 19th century, tea was a luxury that even a middle-income class could not afford. But it was one man’s vision that changed everything. Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1850, Sir Thomas Lipton started the tea brand Lipton Tea in his forties. At the age of just 16, Sir Thomas Lipton became a laborer on a steamship to save his family from poverty. Later came back to Scotland after doing several jobs.
Worked as an assistant in her parents’ grocery store. Thus a chain of these shops spread in Glasgow. So he bought a tea farm in Sri Lanka with the money he got from that business. He started selling tea powder to people at a low price by eliminating middlemen. That’s how common people started enjoying tea. That’s how this tea started taking its place in everyone’s dinner table. So all the tea lovers of the world sir. Thomas Lipton is gratefully remembered. It is from his name that Lipton tea, which has conquered the world even today, got its name.
Are there any products that beat Gillette when it comes to shaving blades? This is the company that introduced us to such perfectly sharp shaving blades. The founder of this company is a man named Kim Kamp Gillette. He was born in 1855 in Wisconsin. One morning while shaving his beard, he realized that his regular blade razor was not very sharp.
He realized that a good shaving blade needs to be sharp and only the edge needs to be sharp. He also invented the technique of making sharp blades from two ends of a flat piece of steel. That’s how the shaving methods that existed till then changed. Gillette has also launched a range of low-cost disposable blades. The discovery of disposable blades that do not cause damage in the long term has brought about a major change in this field. He turned this into a venture and named the brand after his family name, Gillette.
