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).

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.
Customer ReviewsWrite a review
This is my everyday tea when I have no access to raw milk while traveling for work. This tea could pass as a real Darjeeling, but we want to keep it honest, it is a Kangra.
I steep it just as if it was a FF Darjeeling, and the result is fresh, green with floral hints. No, it is not a green tea, it is fully fermented and therefore a black tea! But the aroma is like grassy, green florals, if you know what I mean.
I have been enjoying Indian teas since 1994 and my main focus used to be on Darjeeling and Assam. Have tried all the big names from various importers (don't mean corporate names like Lipton, but estate names like Singbulli and Harmutty and all the others over time), and I have learnt that a big name doesn't guarantee a fantastic tea every year. Actually, no, not at all!
Until 2017 I had never heard of Kangra, but I won a kilo (1000g) of this tea in a Vahdam sweepstake, and since then I have been hooked, have been reordering it several times per year.
To make that clear, I am paying for my tea, this review is not sponsored or so. Only the prize that I won in 2017 was free, after that I have paid for all my tea orders!
I do order higher priced Darjeelings once in a while when they are on sale, but since I am on a budget, I have to make smart decisions., so my go-to tea for everyday is this Kangra.
Want a Darjeeling-like aroma but can't always (or never) afford that? THIS is your tea! This Kangra costs about $5 per 100g (often less when on discount), compared to $20+ or more for Darjeelings of similar style. Try it now, thank me later for this budget-saving tip! If you like FF Darjeelings, definitely give this a try.
It reminds me home, very flavorful tea makes our morning extra serene. Our family enjoyed it. Yes, I'll buy again and also recommend for others.
