Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is White tea?
    Like any other tea type, white teas also come from the same mother plant - Camellia Sinensis. Known to be one of the most delicate tea types in the world owing to minimal processing, these exquisite teas are harvested from tender buds which are selectively plucked before dawn with great care and attention to detail. These young buds are covered with prize 'white hairs' and hene the name 'white teas'. These leaves are then hand-rolled by experts and undergo a minimal amount of processing. White tea contains the same types of antioxidants as green tea, however in greater quantity and it has a smoother, gentler, and a sweeter taste in contrast to green teas.
  • How much caffeine is present in white tea?
    A typical 8 oz cup of White tea contains 28 milligrams of caffeine, which is relatively low level in comparison to other caffeinated beverages, such as coffee or green tea. For example, a cup of coffee averages about 95 milligrams of caffeine per cup, more than 3 times the amount in white tea. In other words, it can provide an energetic boost, but isn’t as addictive and doesn’t give those unwanted jitters.
  • What nutrients are present in White Tea?
    White tea contains beneficial nutrients with anti-microbial effects that protect the body against the occurrence of diseases. It contains tannins, fluoride, and flavonoids such as catechins and polyphenols. These compounds not only regulate the body's metabolism, but also protect the cells from any harmful free radicals which if not checked contribute to ageing, chronic inflammation, weak immunity and many other unwanted diseases.
  • 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 centers located in various parts of the world.

Not sure how fresh this tea really is.

I've previously purchased Vahdam Samplers through Amazon but this was the first time ordering one specific tea. The vacuum seal was broken on the package upon arrival and the enclosed coupon was already expired, which has me wondering about how fresh this tea really is.

Not fresh

They make a big deal about its freshness. But mine came with a coupon that had expired two weeks before I received the item. Clearly the item had been sitting in a warehouse for a long time.The tea is so weak that one has to use a lot more than with other teas. The price is awfully high to start with, and made even higher when you have to use twice as much to even taste it.And there is a wasteful excess of packaging material. I will not be buying again.

Nice and lovely

I tried this Snowbud after getting and loving the black Nilgiri breakfast tea. It???s very lovely and softly floral. I like it in the early afternoon. White tea is abundant in anti-oxidants so I know it???s good for me. Do I like it more than the black breakfast....definitely not! I can??? t wait for morning to have the black..what can I say....
