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 love this tea, it's delicate yet flavorful, very nice on it's own, but I also enjoy it mixed at at 2 parts to 1 with the Vahdam Cardamon Chai (2 parts Darjeeling and 1 part chai).
I really like this delicate yet flavorful tea - it brings Spring to my steps!
Great ! The taste like green tea but with the taste of black tea, with strong taste, I havenâ€™t try the first flush before! Should buy again! Perfect to taste tea leaves only! May be add a little bit lemon juice will give a fresh smell .
We love this tea, especially my wife does. Having been a regular tea drinker for over twenty years, we rate this as a high quality tea. It is subtle, flowery and borderline discreet. It is not the tea if you like a strong smell and aftertaste. The best way to experience good tea is to sip with a slurp, rinse it lightly in the mouth before swallowing and then take a deep breath to smell the aroma. This tea ticks all the boxes for a quality tea for us. Of course it is an expensive tea. If we could go to Darjeeling and buy it at the 'mall' we would pay much less. However being in the US and having this made available to us, we were ready to pay bit of a premium.
This item gets 1 star simply because there is no zero star. Tasteless - you are better off drinking hot water. $10 down the drain.
