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 highly recommend VAHDAM Darjeeling tea leaves. They are the freshest I have ever purchased or tasted. My wife made chai tea and I have never tasted better. We purchase most of our food from local farmers and even though the farmers are in India it feels local. The owner, Mr. Bara Sarda, reached out to us and made sure, with a money back guarantee, that we were satisfied. I hope this company is successful so I can purchase yes leaves from them in the future.
This is such a wonderful tea at a truly low price. The flavor is what yea should be. I cold brew it mostly and the flavor layers are so rich and robust. Very happy customer here!
This tea is truly fantastic. The flavors are amazing and I can say that I have never had Darjeeling that tasted so good. But having said that I have also never had Darjeeling delivered direct from a India with a date on the package of when the tea was picked. How amazing is that! You know it is fresh. I see no reason to purchase tea from any other retailers going forward as I purchased five different teas from Vahdam and all of them better than store bought tea. Great customer service too.
Elegant, delightful way to begin the day.
I am particular about tea and use only loose tea, not bags. My reliable source went out of business so I tried Vahdam.. I first tried a sampler and was very pleased to see full leaves in my brewed pot, not the chopped up particles found in most of the loose teas available in stores. I am very pleased with the flavor and I ordered a bag of my favorite,Darjeeling. I was not disappointed. - full or half leaves and the flavor I expect in this tea. I am pleased to find a new source of quality loose tea.
