    Frequently Asked Questions

    Know Your Tea Better.

    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.

    A tick better than Vahdam’s Classic Black

    Lately, I’ve enjoyed rotating between Nilgiri and Classic Black teas in the morning. Himilayan Breakfast is great too - quite sweet, that one. I make a pot of Nilgiri or Classic in the AM no matter what and drink it for breakfast with a dash of milk, and sweeten it with stevia or a splash of honey. Always at four minutes of steep (my preference). Our 11 year old drinks this with me and it’s not like the caffeine is a big concern, no issues. Nilgiri is sweeter and a little less hearty and less red/black then Classic, but still very satisfying. Black tea replaces the coffee I used to drink and I much prefer Nilgiri out of all I’ve tried. No caffeine issues. Just a solid arc of goodness and a beautiful bouquet of smells/flavor. It’s a staple in our household.
