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.
Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I dearly love loose leaf black tea and was pleasantly surprised by this blend. (Although I really shouldn't have been surprised; Vahdam is quality tea!) I find that Unitea brews exactly as shown, and the resulting flavor is smooth and strong. Good as a breakfast blend or afternoon tea: it's my favorite black tea that I've tried from Vahdam so far. Cheers!
More to my liking than the previous.
Unitea is a great tasting blend of black tea, with a delightful aroma and unique flavor. I cannot claim this blend is intended to do this, but after our first cup of this blend, my husband looked at me and said, "Are you feeling calm?" - and just before he said this, I thought, "Man, I feel really calm after this cup of tea." Maybe that's just us, but this tea warms the stomach and gives us both a great, satisfied feeling.
Delicious. Stays fresh in the bag. We've had it as hot tea (yum), iced tea (yum), and kombucha (yum- floral and fruity).
I usually drink Assam tea with milk in the morning (to avoid irritated stomach) and Darjeeling tea in the afternoon/evening (without anything added). This is a very nice blend. Strong but not bitter, soft but not without a kick. Fine to have in the morning or in the evening (not after you'd normally have your last dose of caffeine, of course). Haven't tried it wilk milk yet but the flavor is so nice I'll definitely consider having it without anything in the morning too.Bonus: proper leafs, not the powder or CTC.
