Is Black Tea good for health?
Black Tea has specific antioxidants, including catechins and polyphenols, which have been linked to reduce the risk of certain type of cancers. Increased evidence shows that these antioxidants in black tea have been known to reduce atherosclerosis in women (clogged arteries) in women.
How to brew a good cup of Black Tea?
In order to brew a good cup of black tea, take some oxygen-rich, fresh water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. For a single cup of black tea, take 1 teaspoon (2 grams) of black tea in a teapot. Pour the freshly boiled 180-200 ml of water over the leaves in the teapot. Cover and let it steep for 3-5 minutes according to your taste preference (longer the steeping time, stronger is the tea). Add in Milk and sugar as per your taste and liking!
Which harvest teas do you use in your blends?
All our premium blends are made of a variety of garden-fresh, superior quality teas sourced from their native region. We procure all our teas in their respective prime-harvest seasons, which differ according to the tea type, place of origin, season etc. Procuring these teas during their prime harvest periods means that we get the best quality teas which have an enhanced flavor, character, and freshness.
Where do you source your teas from?
We source our teas from over 150 renowned tea plantations and small individual farms in India. Within the country, we procure from 5 popular tea-producing regions, namely : Darjeeling, Assam, Nilgiri, Kangra, and Sikkim.
How are your teas packed?
After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Teas then pass through a final 10+ quality check points for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminium-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperatuere-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon recieving a consumer's order, we further pack the required quantity of tea in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centres located in various parts of the world.

I have been trying to find an organic fair trade tea to use for my daily chai. After years I am so happy to have found a good quality direct source company. Timely delivery beautiful packaging and makes a perfect cup of tea! I am looking forward to trying other types of their teas in the future.
I just returned from England, where tea is available much, much cheaper than in the US. I was trying to find something similar to a tea that I purchased in Bath, UK (unavailable to ship from Bath). During my search, I found that many US suppliers wanted as much as $15-20 per 1-2 oz of tea. I was honestly hesitant to look into Vahdam because I had only tried their tea once before and I had received that tea as a gift (beautiful, delicious gift) -- given its association with Oprah, I just assumed it was out of my price range. I was so happy to find out that I was so wrong! Although, I couldn't find the exact match to the tea from Bath, the Applause tea looked most like it, so I ordered. This tea is delicious and just what I had hoped it would be. It is inexpensive but does not taste cheap at all -- the packaging is superb! I am so impressed. During this fearful and uncertain time of quarantine, I was so pleased to receive this tea -it has been so comforting. I will now do all my tea shopping through Vahdam. Highly recommend!
Better than either Daily Assam or Unitea in my opinion.
I am still getting used to a black tea that is not the American standards, Earl Grey, Lipton, Darjeeling etc..
This is a basic black, no frills tea. I prefer the second and third brew from a single teaspoon. I think I will try it with milk and sugar.
This is a solid CTC breakfast offering. It brews up strong with an interesting "spicy" scent. However, I think the freshness of this tea is over sold. I've made two orders of 5 total tea packets and each one was packaged over a year previously. The boxes contained amazon coupons expired by more than 6 months! The marketing material implies this is rushed to your door from India, but that has not been my experience, at least in the United States.
