What are the benefits of Pyramid-shaped Tea bags?

Our tea bags are heat-sealed and high-density enveloped.
What are your Tea pouches made of?
Our Tea pouches are made of high-grade Nylon mesh. These bags are heat-sealed and high-density enveloped.
How do I know the water temperature is right?
While temperature is easy to determine if you have a thermometer, how can you tell without one? The easiest trick is the boil-and-wait method below. Keep in mind these are just guidelines and not a guarantee! Hot water (75℃ - 80℃): Let the boiled water sit for about 5 minutes before use. Near-boiling (90℃ - 95℃): Let boiled water sit for about 1 minute before use.
How are the Teas packaged?
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 checkpoints for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminum-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.
Is there an expiration date on products?/What is the shelf life of products?
All Vahdam Teas have a shelf-life of 3 years from the Date of Picking/Harvest. Both the 'Date of Picking' and the 'Date of Expiry' are mentioned on the bottom of all our boxes.
Where are your Teas from?
We source our teas from over 150 renowned 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.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I didn't know the history of this tea until after my second bulk purchase. I love Darjeeling tea, and this brand is very nice. You are the same age as my youngest son. I'm sure your family is proud of all your successes. Stay healthy.
Very fragrant with a nice body. Handy packaging
Although the listing clearly mentions unblended and single origin - it doesn't makes sense in context of Darjeeling Tea. There is fluctuation when it comes to local weather, the land, the processing and that changes the flavor profile. Flavor profile also changes from year to year too.Master tea tasters blend different harvests and give a consistent flavor. This is what the tea lacks- the sense of consistency and familiarity.It's a good tea but not the flavor profile associated with Darjeeling tea.
This Darjeeling tea hits a fresh floral note with me that is somehow flavorful and light at the same time. I usually steep 2 and half minutes. This is my third or fourth time purchasing and I like several of the Vahdam teas this is probably my favorite.
This is my favorite Darjeeling tea. It is absolutely perfect tea every time.
