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.
Tasty leaf tea. Big leaves, not pulverized. Timely delivery. Good value. Sure beats bags!
I love Vadham's Assam tea! The description states 'strong, malty and rich' and I couldn't agree more. The tea is fresh and packaged wonderfully, I always know I'm getting a great product when I order Vadham. Many thanks for the happy taste buds!
Meh. Yes, this Assam has nice toffee and malt flavors. But the two words I would first use to describe it are woody and weak. I need a full two teaspoons to brew a decent cup.
Vadham's Assam is consistently delicious iced, and it has a surprising (at least to me) afternote that I can only describe as almost chocolatey - like a hint of bittersweet baking chocolate.I am still new to loose teas and still experimenting with varieties and preparation methods, including cold-brewing in addition to standard hot steeping. While Darjeeling is amazing, Assam has been more versatile...and forgiving...in terms of preparation.I still have much to learn, but I have already found a tea that I can enjoy immensely without destroying while I continue my education, and I love being able to deal directly with the growers and trace my tea all the way back to the individual farms/estates.Very highly recommended.
I love this company and their teas! First I tried Vahdam's English Breakfast blend but this Assam is my favorite, my every day go to tea. And yet it doesn't feel every day, it's so flavorful and delicious. The quality of these long fresh leaves is so superior to any other tea I've consumed. I look forward to having my 2 cups every morning and some evenings. I appreciate the description of the Vahdam company and agree whole heartedly that their teas are the best! Prior to discovering Vahdam teas, I drank Twinings for many years. Twinings leaves are so finely ground, almost powdery. I had no idea tea leaves could look this pretty! I added this Assam to my subscribe and save items as I never want to run out!
