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 love smokey teas and this one is a very good black tea that takes milk well. It's my go to tea for breakfast each morning and makes me feel that the day is starting off well.
i ordered this tea expecting lapsang souchong so i was disappointed when i realized it was an indian assam tea with a smokey flavor. i can't fault the company for that and the tea is nice, however don't purchase this tea if you're looking for a truly smokey tea. it's a nice simple black tea with a very subtle floral sweetness and a slight smokey undertone
Smoky is very appropriate. Fantastic flavor without being overpowering.
While this tea is a bit pricey, in my opinion, I think it’s a good example of a slightly smoky but very smooth Assam. Not a whole lot of maltyness here, but it would be a good gift to a coffee drinker who wants to try different teas. I drink my tea black, but this one could hold up to some milk and sugar.
Good tea, a little goes a long way.
