    What is the shelf life of products?

    All Vahdam Teas have a shelf-life of 3 years from the Date of Picking/Harvest. The 'Date of Expiry' are mentioned on the bottom of all our boxes.

    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.

    How and where are the ingredients sourced from?

    Our Pyramid-shaped Nylon Tea bags make for a large, sturdy tea bags which doesn't tear up easily and brews a large cup. The pyramid shape allows more room for the tea leaves to unfurl, offering a rich and flavorful cup of tea, as against low-grade tea dust used by many orthodox brands. Our tea bags are heat-sealed and high-density enveloped.

    Classic for a reason

    I have fallen for the perfect simplicity of Vahdam’s Classic Black Tea. I drink it every morning, sometimes afternoon. It has a array of wonderful smells that are almost as good as the tea itself. I add a splash of milk and Stevia sweetener but it is quite good just black. I want my tea to have bold flavor rather than be fragranced water so I use two and a half to three teaspoons of tea per pot. I found the perfect steep with boiling water is four minutes.

    My favorite tes

    My husband found your loose leaf tea on line several years ago. I had given up on love of a cup. I can't drink tea in bags. I can taste the paper which in my opinion runes the flavor. Thank you for your tea and giving me back my joy of tea.
