    Tasting Notes

    One of the most highly-sought muscatel teas from Darjeeling, is this second flush Darjeeling black tea from the renowned Margaret’s Hope tea estate. This invoice of this famed summer tea is harvested from pure Chinary bushes. Mucatel teas are nature’s true work of art. These are harvested during a typically short period of time, when the peak summer phases into monsoon. This peculiar and unique climatic play of rainfall, humidity, and temperature -  only for a maximum of two weeks, is what creates the ideal conditions for the ‘signature muscatel flavor’ to develop. 

     

    The leaves are relatively small, typical to pure China bushes. The liquor is of a bright golden color and has a whiff of toastiness. The first sip is sweet with hints of almonds, and it then eases into an intense play of tropical fruit flavors, particularly reminiscent of muscat grapes - which is why these teas are called muscatel. The cups rounds off with a distinct nuttiness that lingers.

    What is the shelf life of products?

    All Vahdam Teas have a shelf-life of 3 years from the Date of Picking/Harvest. The 'Date of Expiry' are mentioned on the bottom of all our boxes.

    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.

    Our aim is to give back to the places and people that make VAHDAM® India who we are. Ensuring an educated and enlightened future for the children of our tea workers is just our way of keeping up that intention. 

    And that is why, 1% of our revenue is directed towards the education of our farmers’ children in India.


    Putting our people and our planet first, always.

    It's time for a better way to drink tea. VAHDAM® is also a Climate Neutral & Plastic Neutral certified brand. We measure our plastic & carbon footprint every year.
