Does Green Tea aid weight loss?
According to research, Green tea has been proven to be one of the healthiest beverages in the world. Besides the fact that a cup of green tea contains less than half the caffeine present in a cup of coffee, it also is rich in antioxidants called 'catechins'. One of the prime catechins present in Green tea is EGCG, which have proven to increase thermogenesis in our body. This boosts our metabolism and if combined with a healthy diet and exercise, it has a positive impact on weight loss.

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, temperature-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon receiving 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.
Don't know what else I can say. I discovered this Vadham Blue Mountain after trying one of their Green Tea Samplers. I was using one of the Himalayan teas which I really liked. However, after a side by side I decided to go with the Blue Mountain, even though the price is a good bit higher per cup. I will describe one criticism: the instructions recommend one teaspoon for a 6 oz cup. The texture of the dried leaves is such that the do not collect effectively in a teaspoon and therefore, you cannot get the recommended 2 grams dry weight. Obviously, the easy fix I came up with was to weigh it each time. It actually is taking over 2 tsp to get to that weight. This doesn't diminish my 5-star rating. Just letting everyone know that you may want to weigh your blue mountain and make sure your spoon collects the desired amount.
great tea. i'm a big fan
Itâ€™s ok tea. I have tried many green teas and this one does not have green tea aroma as it should.
Very good green tea ??????? very nice cup Thank you
I donâ€™t agree with any of the previous review. This tea tastes terrible. No matter what quantity (little or more) I brew, the tast of this green tea is verity bitter and terrible. I canâ€™t return it since I have opened it, spent so much money and I canâ€™t use. Do not recommend it. Unless you like a strong strong bitter taste, go for it.
