Is Black Tea good for health?
Black Tea has specific antioxidants, including catechins and polyphenols, which have been linked to reduce the risk of certain type of cancers. Increased evidence shows that these antioxidants in black tea have been known to reduce atherosclerosis in women (clogged arteries) in women.
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.
I have been drinking Vahdam tea more than a year now. I also tasted English Breakfast and Black tea as well. As a Turkish person, i am a keen drinker of black tea. Although we have local tea brands I personally prefer Vahdam due to its quality and taste. I met Vahdam when I was living in the US. Since I am back to Turkey, I started to order directly from India since it is not possible to find Vahdam tea locally. Delivery was extremely quick. Packaging was excellent. Customer service was thorough. I will continue drinking Vahdam. Thank you.
Your Earl Grey Citrus Black Tea came vacuum-packed for maximum freshness and the aroma filled the entire room when we opened the packet much to the delight of our guests, many of whom were tea lovers. They were full of praise for the rich flavour of tea plus the depth of begamot which accompanied our afternoon tea of scones, Cornish clotted cream, Scottish strawberry preserve & fresh strawberries. Will be ordering again when our batch of July 2021 harvest runs out. Keep us informed of your next harvest please! Much thanks!
Would like a little more bergamot, but overall a great tea!
After trying many brands of Earl Grey tea and being disappointed, I purchased Vahdam brand and was genuinely delighted with the smooth taste. Loved it. Best tea I’ve had and worthwhile importing to Australia. Well done Vahdam Teas!
Beautiful tea tasting as only good quality Earl grey can. Very quick posting from India to England very impressed thank you.
