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.
Kashmiri Kahwa Masala Chai Tea
A very enjoyable and refreshing blend, which I enjoyed without milk or sugar. The saffron is not as heavy as in the Saffron Premium Masala Chai, but goes really well with the almonds and the rest of the spices.
When I first heard of Kashmiri Kahwa, I saw a recipe that included rose buds, so in the future I might try adding a few.
This tea (Kashmiri Kahwa Masala Chai) has such a perfectly balanced flavour of spices and tea, and gives a pleasant, subtle variety of flavours upon each new brew.
I have had black tea chai before, and I didn't expect this to be as nice, as I don't usually enjoy green tea, but it far, far surpassed it.
It tasted fresh, and that freshness really shone through in each cup.
I had previously tried Vahdam's Assam tea and was so surprised as to how good a cup of tea could taste, which was the main reason I went to the website to select and try a different tea and purchased this variety - I'm glad I did.
The delivery was so quick (I tracked it at each stage from Delhi; it arrived two hours quicker than an item ordered from the UK on the same day!), and it arrived with three 10g samples of other teas, one, maybe two of which I will be purchasing more of (Fennel chai and Jasmine pearls).
An excellent company selling excellent products, and one with a heart, as they are clearly doing their best to give something back to the workers who pick and process the tea.
Well done Vahdam, and keep it up, and if you do, you will have a customer for life.
Have been ordering Cardamom Chai regularly for a year now. The tea freshness and flavor is truly top notch, at a great price. The samples they occasionally send are also always something that piques my interest, and recently they sent this very unique Kashmiri Kahwa Masala Chai Tea, it was so good that it is now part of my regularly ordered teas now. Great company making some wonderful and thoughtfully packaged teas!
I like this tea. Pleasant and unusual flavor
