Is Black Tea good for health?
Black Tea has specific antioxidants, including catechins and polyphenols, which have been linked to reduce the risk of certain type of cancers. Increased evidence shows that these antioxidants in black tea have been known to reduce atherosclerosis in women (clogged arteries) in women.
How to brew a good cup of Black Tea?
In order to brew a good cup of black tea, take some oxygen-rich, fresh water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. For a single cup of black tea, take 1 teaspoon (2 grams) of black tea in a teapot. Pour the freshly boiled 180-200 ml of water over the leaves in the teapot. Cover and let it steep for 3-5 minutes according to your taste preference (longer the steeping time, stronger is the tea). Add in Milk and sugar as per your taste and liking!
Which harvest teas do you use in your blends?
All our premium blends are made of a variety of garden-fresh, superior quality teas sourced from their native region. We procure all our teas in their respective prime-harvest seasons, which differ according to the tea type, place of origin, season etc. Procuring these teas during their prime harvest periods means that we get the best quality teas which have an enhanced flavor, character, and freshness.
Where do you source your teas from?
We source our teas from over 150 renowned tea 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 your teas packed?
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. Teas then pass through a final 10+ quality check points for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminium-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperatuere-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon recieving a consumer's order, we further pack the required quantity of tea in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centres located in various parts of the world.
Nice taste, nice smell, it is very satisfactory tea, indeed.
This is a nice malty tea with Carmel flavores. Similar to an Assam tea. Very robust and satisfying.
I'm glad I decided to try this tea. I saw it wasn't very expensive, so I thought I would give it a try, since I'm usually picky about my breakfast teas so I like to have options in the morning. I think this tea hits all the right breakfast notes in a good balance; toasty (as the description states), with notes of molasses and raisin. It's hearty and fulfilling. When I can't decide which breakfast tea I'm in the mood for, I'll reach for this one; I'll know with this tea, I can't go wrong.
Очень неплохой чай на каждый день (утро). Аромат чайных листьев очень приятный. Цвет заварки - насыщенный красно-коричневый. Вкус - терпкий. Для утреннего чая на каждый день - очень подходящая смесь. Однако если вам нужен чай на себя побаловать или гостей удивить, то стоит купить что-то иное. В своей категории(чай на каждый день) - рекомендую!
I don??t know how many Nilgiri teas I??ve tried in the past, but this one strikes me as decidedly Ceylonesque. The charcoal-brown leaves yield a dark golden-brown brew with a slightly orange cast. The taste to my palate is high-quality Ceylon. This blend would be a good choice for those hoping to make the transition from grocery store ??orange pekoe? filter bags (which usually contain Ceylon remains swept off the floor after all of the good leaves have been spoken for...) to higher quality black teas. No additives needed, and I??m guessing this would taste good iced as well.
