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.

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. Post 10+ quality checkpoints for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. these are 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. Further, required quantities are packed 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.

A light 2nd flush

This is a good value darjeeling, somewhat light in taste and body but very drinkable. Do drink this hot, as it loses all flavor when iced. You won't do better at this price point.

A unique second flush experience

This tea is different from the mainstream second flush Darjeelings. A nice full body cup with an evolving muscatel flavor, but also with a brisk lightness and a wealth of fruity flavors. I have drunk Darjeeling teas for the past 30+ years, but this cup stands out. Currently my favorite way to start my day.

A very different and pleasant tea!

I'd never heard of this tea before, and my experience with loose leaf teas only goes back a little over a year. I'd never heard of "Gopaldhara" before, so I figured why not? Vadham teas have been challenging me while I build my tea Palette, but I was shocked at how accurate the description was, though it was one of those things I had to mull over while enjoying my first cup. (4min steep time @95C) Stone fruit is the most apt description, although to me it was less "peach" or "mango" and more of a character in between a plum and prune. Not sweet, just a definite dried fruit character. It threw me a bit... the flavor to me would be *perfect* in the fall, and I know "summer" means when it was harvested, but I still place it as a 'fall' tea to my taste.

I don't know that this will be a daily tea for me, it's fantastic, don't get me wrong, but kinda like the Smoky Assam, I just have to be in the right mood for it. I got 3 good steeps, first 2 both three minutes, last steep 5 minutes, I considered a fourth but the fruit flavor from the tea was VERY weak on the third steep.

If you haven't had it, I would highly recommend it. I never thought a tea could taste like this, and overall, I'm truly shocked over how radically different flavors can come from the same plant. Pretty cool. Top notch Vahdam, top notch!

Excellent Flavor

Wonderful Darjeeling. This site's description of its flavor is accurate. Taste of sweet stone fruits, full, round background, no bitterness but deep texture (like a wine). Can hold its own with Arya Ruby. Great QPR.

Robust Darjeeling

I have been very pleased with all of my orders from Vahdam (all loose-leaf). This Darjeeling is delightful: the most robust Darjeeling I think I've ever had. The leaves are easily good for a second steep. I'm currently drinking this at breakfast, but think that future orders will serve as a refined afternoon tea. Cheers!
