This morning I had the opportunity to brew a pot of Bala Sarda's Vahdam Tea. First, the packaging assures receipt in the freshest state possible. Sealed in aluminum lined heavy resealable paper assures fresh picked aroma and flavor. Second, following the brewing instructions on the packet, I was able to produce the aroma, taste points and perfection of the finest of Breakast Teas. If you purchase your tea at the grocer in the little cardboard boxes and dropped the tea bag in a cup with boiling water, you truly haven't experienced the way premium tea tastes. I have given Bala Sarda's tea five stars but only because Amazon does not have a ten star scale. No other tea but Vahdam by Bala Sarda will grace my pantry. It is simply the finest Breakfast Tea available.
