    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is First Flush?

    First Flush is the first harvest of the season. In Darjeeling, the First Flush teas are harvested with the onset of Spring around the first week of March.

    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 deligtfully green with silvery tips, and make a sweet, light and decadant cup with a distint hue of Spring flowers.

    What is so speical about Single Estate?

    Unlike teas blended with teas from many estates, Single Estate teas are from a single tea estate and not blended with any other teas. VAHDAM'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 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 a 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.

    prompt delivery excellent tea

    As always, the Vahdam delivery time is exponentially faster than other Indian tea providers. Also pleasantly surprised by the quality of the premium first flush teas. I'll be ordering more of my highest quality Indian teas from Vahdam in future as well as the everyday Assams and blends I have been getting there for a while.

    Immediate joy

    Really good cup of tea especially after just a little experimentation to make sure you have the quantity and the time of brewing just right. I used to be a little dismissive of Darjeeling Tea and preferred Assam, even after being told very firmly by a Darjeeling taxi driver that Assam was all colour no flavour. Now, several years later I am so glad to have drunk Castleton Darjeeling tea - my first purchase with Vahdam - and so so so different from Darjeeling tea bought in the supermarket where I live in the UK.

    Completely solid English Breakfast tea with lovely bouquet

    English breakfast teas are not just one thing. Everyone has their perfect cuppa in memory and then goes searching for that. One of Vahdam's more affordable teas, this does the job for me. It's rich, malty, not too coppery, with hints of fig and grass. The bouquet is alluring. The only thing missing to my mind is a bit of smokiness. But that is a quibble. This is now a staple for me.
