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.
I have found this very refreshing . I usually take this in the morning . Here is a recipe which works best for me- â€œLet the water to boil in a pot and then put the tea and cover the pot for 5 minutes on very slow flame , finally take it in your favorite cup with honey (if you like) and consume it slowly by tasting each sip with deep breath .â€
It came in very elegant packaging. I love that the was vacuum packed but also came with a resealable bag to store it in.And yes yes yes this tea makes absolutely delicious pink Kashmiri chai.
This tea is awesome! I have tried a few green teas in the past but couldn't get myself to like them, but this one I really like, have been drinking a cup every day from the day it arrived.
I was very pleased to find some authentic kahwa to order online.I read about how this tea was such an important part of Kashmiri culture and I was eager to try it.Itâ€™s great but there is very little almond and it is in teeny tiny pieces. Adding some thinly sliced almonds yourself would add to the authenticity.
Reddit had a post about the wonders of Kashmiri gulabi, pink or noon chai/tea. Since I am both a veteran of making Indian style chai and a fan of Kashmir I googled up a recipe, which called for Kashmiri tea specifically - nothing else will do. Off to Amazon, and lo and behold, I found Vadham Tea, who offered that most vital ingredient Kashmiri kawah/tea. Arrived quickly, first class packaging. Excellent quality tea with cardamom and spices. I prepare it as qulabi chai, pink tea, with a pinch of salt and sugar. Now I am finding that my regular chai is not nearly as good as this! If you think about how much you'd pay at a restaurant for just one serving of pink tea, Vadham's Kashmiri tea is very reasonably priced and has gotten me through many cold February nights. The way I make it, it is sweet, slightly salty, creamy and delicious! Highly recommended! You can easily make this at home and impress your friends.
