    Tasting Notes
    Appearance - Dark-tan and coppery, with noticeable tips - stylish and well-made
    Aroma - Toasty and sweet, with an almost caramel and honeysuckle hue and subtle woody notes
    Taste - Bright and deep amber, there is a distinctly rich vibrancy in the cup that is matched with a good-body and sweet astringency on the palate, with amazingly clear notes of ripened tropical fruits at the edges, tapering off with lovely and lingerting tones of muscatel grapes.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What makes Second Flush Teas highly-prized around the world?

    Post the first tea harvest called the 'First Flush', Second Flush follows between May to June. The tea leaves are picked and are characterized as well-rounded, fruity and mature, flavored tea leaves. Tea brewed from these leaves is less astringent and more improved than the First Flush.

    Are the flavors in the tea natural?

    100% yes! Some of the ingredients are also organic.

    What is the shelf life of your products?

    All VAHDAM® India Teas have a shelf-life of 3 years from the ‘Date of Picking/Harvest.’ The ‘Date of Expiry’ is mentioned at the bottom of all our boxes.

    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.

    Do you ship outside the USA?

    Yes, we do ship outside the USA. To date, we have shipped our premium teas to consumers in more than 130 countries around the world. For shipping outside the USA, please visit our global website at www.vahdam.com

    Good-tasting tea...and fresh!

    Order arrived promptly. The tea was vacuum packed so that was a plus. Another nice thing was that the date of harvest was on package and unlike other teas, it was easy to see how fresh this was. Although I do not make my tea like anyone else, I still know what tastes good and what doesn't and both my hubby and I liked this one. Will probably buy again when this one is used up.
