What makes First Flush teas highly-prized around the world?
First Flush teas from Darjeeling are highly sought after by connoisseurs for their signature freshness and fragrance. The young leaves are delightfully green with silvery tips, and make a sweet, light, and decadent cup with a distinct hue of Spring flowers.
What is so special about Single Estate?
Unlike teas blended with teas from multiple estates, Single Estate teas are from a single tea estate and not blended with any other teas. VAHDAM® India's Single Estate teas also mention Invoice No. and Date of Plucking of the teas - identifying the exact lot that is available only with VAHDAM® India and no one else!
Are these really from the famous Darjeeling tea-growing region?
Yes! All 100% pure Darjeeling teas come with the Tea Board of India's DARJEELING TEA logo. This logo is allowed only for 100% genuine and authentic Darjeeling teas and is a guarantee that you are buying certified Darjeeling tea.
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.
