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.
A very pleasant and easy-drinking Assam. Not overwhelmingly malty as some Assams can be but with a balanced overall flavour and a nice hint of tannin after four minutes steeping. I find it very good with a bit of milk in the morning. One of my current favourites!
Halmari Gold Assam Second Flush Black Tea
Great wake-up flavors of cocoa and breads. I always try to have some of this on hand in my house.
The black teas with golden tips ones are most of my favorites due to full and good taste and aftertaste. I When something says gold in the name, Vahdam isn't kidding. Vahdam pictures are great, but they're honest. When I compare the tea to the picture the tea looks better and more gold is more defined.
This is a lovely tea - flavorful yet delicate, beautiful color, and astonishingly fresh.
