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.
I've tried many Chai teas and this is by far my favorite. No need to add anything except some almond, coconut or whatever milk you like to make the perfect spicy, slightly sweet (without sweetener - huge bonus!) cup of warming, soothing chai. It's my happy drink and my go-to when I'm taking a break from dairy and off my usual 4-5 cups of English Breakfast (with milk) a day. Sometimes I add a few leaves of Vahdam English Breakfast to the mix for extra kick. I love this company, the extra attention to detail/customer satisfaction like resealable bags, etc. Makes me feel like a valued customer which is rare these days. I will I prefer the loose teas to the tea bags, because I like my tea strong and the bags just aren't strong enough for me.
I received a gift set of Chai teas that this was one of the selections. Wonderful flavors, great packaging and consistent taste! I enjoy a latte Chai tea every morning. I have shared this tea with others since I enjoy it so much.
This is an amazing tea. Was an Oprah favorite thing 2018 - this is my 3rd time ordering. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
This is my favorite tea for a cold drink, and I now have it on monthly order--it's that good. I brew a pot, chill it, then add a splash of milk for a great iced tea. Excellent company ethics and well-designed packaging make this a great gift for any tea lover who enjoys iced chai. Highly recommended.
I love how the package date is printed on the vacuum-sealed packages. I was surprised that the tea had been packaged within 2 months of me receiving it.
