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 drink tea every morning and am very fussy about the flavors of the tea I drink. I have bought teas from an American company and have been satisfied with their tea for about 20 years. Someone gave three sample envelopes of loose tea to my husband, he is a teacher. I had never heard of Vahdam. I am very fond of Assam and also Darjeeling. I loved the samples and so ordered some loose tea. This tea tasted different from any other Assam I have had. The flavor was so distinct and the aroma when I opened the shrink wrapped back was delicious.
good breakfast tea, mixed with some keemun and Saffron Chai
Yummy tea that brews up flavorful with the recommended teaspoon per cup. I have tasted blackberry chocolate and sometimes cloves and vanilla in the same cup. A tasty challenge to try to describe the flavors as I enjoy cup after cup.
I'm somewhat of an Indian Tea connoisseur and frequently try different brands: Teabox, Mighty Leaf, Numi, In pursuit of Tea, you name it, I've probably tried it. That said, while all of these teas are high quality, VAHDAM (Enigma Assam) is stands out for it's freshness and flavor. It is what an Assam should taste like!!!
Love the flavor of this tea.
