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 did notnorder any teas recently
Nice flavor. And starting today I'm going to be mixing in ashwaghanda so I can get the medicinal benefits from all three ingredients! Tulsi and ashwaghanda are both adaptogens that help with stress and anxiety.
I mix coconut cloud in with this this. It tastes fantastic. I quit coffee a while ago and tried a lot of different teas -- I like almost every type of tea but when I'm having coffee craving, nothing else had quite the same strong, rich, deep taste. The spiciness in this does the trick. I have a tea pot with a loose leaf filter in the middle that works great. I also made it via the stovetop instructions, but since I can't pour it into the teapot filter, it's really hard to not end up with leaves still in my tea, so I can't really recommend that method unless you have a better filtering method (though it really tastes so much better using the stovetop instructions).
This tea is delicious!!! Beautiful packaging!!
Really loving this company and the teas I've bought from them so far. I had been looking for just a tulsi tea, but what they had was tulsi and ginger, and actually I think this is better. I'm mixing it with oatstraw and brewing it very dark, 2T for 4 cups water. The resulting tea has a pleasant bite from the ginger. I'm going to end up buying more in bulk size! Plus supporting a company that is basically fair-trade direct to farmers makes me feel that my money is going to the best place.
