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.

Very good tea.
Very good tea.
Tea is wonderful. So full of flavor, makes tea bags lame.
The product arrives well-packaged in an air-tight paper bag with protective coating and a reusable zip-locking closure. The smell upon opening the bag was not as rich as other Darjeeling black teas I've bought in other places. For reference, I used a Grosche Aberdeen tea steeper preparing my first serving. While steeping, the odor is more like that of cut grass than black tea. Don't let that discourage you because it tastes nothing like it smells. The taste was on the bitter, dull side rather than robust and inviting. Definitely a tea to be served with milk. I am not disappointed with the product. Every tea has its own personality. It's all about serving the tea appropriately to get the most enjoyment.
Some years ago we visited Darjeeling, and learned a lot about tea. This tea brings back all the good memories and taste, we had in the tea house there. This is the some very good quality tea, we were bringing back from there.As a wonderful gift, this is very much enjoyed by my whole family and friends.
