"Dear Mr Trump, namaste from India, we are sending you lots and lots of natural green tea. It fights against harmful free radicals. It helps purify mind and body and regain a healthy balance. It has also proven to make people smarter. Please Mr Trump drink the tea. For your sake, for America's sake, for the world's sake," Kolkata-based Te-A-Me Teas said in a video explaining the idea of sending green tea to Trump.

"The message is simple: Mr Trump, it's never too late to cleanse yourself," the company said yesterday, a day after its
representatives delivered a consignment of some 6,000 green tea bags to the Trump Towers in New York.

"Donald Trump has the whole world worried... we can't stop him, but maybe we can change him," the video said.

While the cost of the tea consignment, sufficient for four years, was not made public, Sumit Shah, Managing Director of the company said its health potential is immense.

"We believe that green tea with all its goodness can help Mr Trump and in turn benefit his country and the world at large," Shah said, adding that the consignment of tea bags is based on the presumption that the real estate tycoon would drink three cups a day.

"If he needs more, we'll be happy to provide. Green tea has been proven to fight against harmful free radicals and cleanse the mind and bodies, helping one regain a healthy balance," Shah said, adding that these green teas can help change Trump for the better.

The Trump Campaign did not respond to questions on the green tea bags from India.
