    Frequently Asked Questions

    Know Our Tea Better.

    Where are your Teas from?

    We source our teas from over 150 renowned 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 the Teas packaged?

    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. Post 10+ quality checkpoints for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. these are vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminum-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperature-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Further, required quantities are packed 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 bought 3 kinds (admittedly to save on postage), but no regrets. Actually can't decide which I like best yet. I rotate through them. Haven't done a side by side comparison tasting yet.

    great tea

    I love assam tea and this tea is delicious I take it straight black but it can hold milk easily, I also like the bigger bag (9 ounce) its already in the bag ready to scoop which is very helpful for me cause I have issues and somtimes my hands shake. I subscribed to receive a 9 ounce every month ,highly recommended

    This is what you want with breakfast

    Strong, malty, handles milk like a champ. Switched to this from PG tips and never looked back, still drinking it every morning. Steep it on the shorter side (2-3 min) if needed. I can also recommend using it as the base of a good masala chai.
