    @priti, selling tea is totally different than books. I don't know how you landed on picking these two businesses as your only options. There are too many work from home options listed on our site, you can browse through to find the best one for you. If you nailed it down to tea and books then I will suggest you to go for tea as there are not too many players in the market for it. You can have premium tea collected from Darjeeling to sell in your city with a good margin. Good Luck..
