How to brew a good cup of Black Tea?
In order to brew a good cup of black tea, take some oxygen-rich, fresh water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. For a single cup of black tea, take 1 teaspoon (2 grams) of black tea in a teapot. Pour the freshly boiled 180-200 ml of water over the leaves in the teapot. Cover and let it steep for 3-5 minutes according to your taste preference (longer the steeping time, stronger is the tea). Add in Milk and sugar as per your taste and liking!
Which harvest teas do you use in your blends?
All our premium blends are made of a variety of garden-fresh, superior quality teas sourced from their native region. We procure all our teas in their respective prime-harvest seasons, which differ according to the tea type, place of origin, season etc. Procuring these teas during their prime harvest periods means that we get the best quality teas which have an enhanced flavor, character, and freshness.
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.
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 centres located in various parts of the world.
It's good taste and sweet.
So I always drink with milk.
Having carefully assessed the Vahdam Black Teas sampler pack some time ago I came to the conclusion that a blend of their Applause CTC Assam Black Tea and their Daily Darjeeling made my perfect cup. I now buy these two teas in quite large quantities from them twice a year and could not be happier with the service and product. Despite the fact that I buy quite large amounts infrequently, it comes packaged in small airtight packs which each last me a few weeks and keep my entire shipment fresh. The quality of the tea is in my humble opinion, excellent and the combination of great service, speedy delivery (Free if you buy enough) and great tea means that I do not look anywhere else.
I ordered 2 pounds of tea, and it’s good. I didn’t expect a box of little packages. I hoped to get the tea in bulk. I’m hating on dumping all that packaging in the landfill.
I have enjoyed everything that I've ever purchased from Vahdam. They have become by go to vender for orthodox black teas. They offer excellent teas that aren't overpriced. I'll keep coming back for more.
A brief review as Vahdam offer quality teas with excellent service, delivery to Denmark was very prompt. I wonder if perhaps the re-sealable bag could be left out to save a little packaging, I'm happy to use a bag clip on the vacuum sealed bag once opened. Thank you for wonderful teas.
