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. In addition to this, all our spices used in Chai teas are sourced from their place of origin and within their respective harvest periods to get superior quality.
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 centers located in various parts of the world.
Absolutely delicious authentic Kashmiri chai. Would buy again and recommend to anyone who wants a nice spice blend black tea.
Not that easy to find real authentic Kashmiri Kahwa Tea, after many trials and disappointments found VAHDAM one such real authentic Kashmiri Kahwa Team.
Fast shipping. The tea is deliciously fresh . Aromatic and rich. Seller cares about the tea growers and wants to raise social consciousness. Will definitely recommend and purchase again
My introduction to Vadham Teas was via their 10-blend sample pack. I have only tried 2 or 3 of the blends so far, but that is because as soon as I tried to Kashmiri Kahwa, I ordered the full-size pack, and that's all I've been drinking for the last month. First off, the way that Vadham packages their tea is excellent. Vacuum-sealed to preserve freshness, and then you transfer it into another pouch that they provide. The label is extremely useful, I love how each flavor has its own steeping instructions (steep time, water temperature... etc). Secondly, I love the message behind Vadham's brand. India is the jewel of the world's spice and tea trade. But perhaps due to the legacy of colonialism, these agricultural goods are exported for dirt-cheap in their raw form to other nations, rather than sold at the highest margin by the Indian producers themselves. As a fellow entrepreneur, I would like to applaud Mr. Bala Sarda for his innovative approach to his brand, cutting out the middlemen exploiting the producers of India of their profits, all while promoting the authentic flavors of India. And lastly, let me discuss the authentic flavors of Vadhma Teas, specifically this Kashmiri Kahwa blend that I have been drinking for a few weeks now. The flavor is light and refreshing, the cinnamon and cardamom add a layer of warmth aromatics to every whiff and sip, and the natural oils from the crushed almond add depth to the body of the tea. The saffron, of course, is the pungent needle that weaves it all together. I am in love with this blend. I also bought 1 pouch for my mom, and another for my girlfriend. Keep up the good work Vadham!
Love this tea!
