    Frequently Asked Questions

    Know Your 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.

    If my vacuum-sealed pack is not tight, is the tea still fresh and consumable?

    Our teas are vacuum-packed fresh at source in India. At times, when you open the box, you might find the vacuum bag loose. This is completely normal & has no impact on the freshness of the tea. The pouch is still sealed & all stale air has been flushed out. So, cut open the bag & brew yourself a cup of tea.

    Life is short, drink good tea - Assam Exotic

    Scent is absolutely gorgeous in the bag, had me thinking of raisins and pipe tobacco. Leaf is small, deep black. On my first try, I brewed for three minutes at 212F.
    The result is a classic black tea, rich and it definitely kept the fruity note. I would have no trouble brewing this one stronger with a bit more leaf-to-water ratio at a longer steep.

    As I decided I wanted a second cup, I did just that, adding a half teaspoon to the leaves from the previous steep to 8 oz. boiling water steeped for four minutes, just to see what it would do. It did just fine. If you like your tea with milk and sugar, go for the higher temperature and longer steep, because it's made for it. It does bring out a little bitterness under these conditions, but only a little, and you still get the fruity scent and flavor.

    Nothing too exciting.

    I love Vahdam teas and buy them often. Although it is my first time I am buying Assam from them. Not sure what I was expecting, knowing the company and reading all the reviews, the tea is not spectacular. It is ok tea, regular taste and low bitterness, quite satisfying and high in caffeine, but it is pretty much a usual black tea from a grocery store. I bought it for 50% discount using a promotion, so it is still ok for the price, but I would feel disappointed paying in full. Certainly not the best of Vahdam teas.
