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.

When I drink black tea, I want it strong and full of flavor. This one hits the spot, at a good price!
If you've been drinking PG Tips or Typhoo, this is likely to be an upgrade. If you're used to better quality teas (Steven Smith Teamaker is my brew of choice at the moment), this is going to be disappointing. While cheaper than many premium teas, I don't feel it's a very good bargain considering the indifferent quality. The taste is bland and, as many reviewers have noted, it's missing the malty notes that distinguish a good Assam. Wish I hadn't bought a whole pound since it's going to be a bit of a slog getting through it all.
I stumbled on your tea while shopping Amazon. I grew up in a loose tea family and yours has me hooked. I keep a tin in the house and in our travel trailer. It's not morning w/o a brew. I am drinking it iced as I write...
very good flavor (autumn flush?)
Just got this tea and tried it out. Love it. Really full-flavored but not overwhelming at all. The tea itself has great aroma and I can't wait to hopefully get more! Would definitely recommend Vahdam.
