Frequently Asked Questions
  • What are Single Estate Teas?
    A single estate tea means that the tea has been sourced from one singular estate only and which has not been blended with other tea.
  • What is a Signature Blend?
    Signature blends are the unique curations of a Master Blender. These blends are specially devised by blenders who go through several combinations and numerous rounds of tasting to curate a unique cup of tea with special flavor profile, aroma, and cup characteristics. Signature blends are trade secrets of the blenders and are mostly classified information.
  • What is a Tea blend?
    Tea blending is the art of mixing a variety of teas together to curate a final blend. The blending of tea involves mixing fixed and measured proportions of various teas in order to get a final blend that has a signature taste, quality, character, and flavour. We look at tea blending as an art as it involves blending teas sourced from different regions and from different harvest seasons, but keeping the final blend's flavor profile a constant.
  • What is a 'Second Flush' Tea? Is it the same as a 'Summer Tea' ?
    Yes, a 'Second-Flush' tea is also known as a 'Summer Tea' for the sole reason that the prime harvest period of the tea falls within the summer months of its place of origin.
  • What is a 'First Flush Tea'? Is a 'Spring Tea' same as 'First flush' tea?
    Yes, a 'First-Flush' tea is also called a 'Spring Tea' as the prime harvest period for these teas falls within the spring months in its place of origin.
  • 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.
