Frequently Asked Questions

Know your tea better.

What makes Second Flush Teas highly-prized around the world?

Post the first tea harvest called the 'First Flush', Second Flush follows between May to June. The tea leaves are picked and are characterized as well-rounded, fruity and mature, flavored tea leaves. Tea brewed from these leaves is less astringent and more improved than the First Flush.

Are the flavors in the tea natural?

100% yes! Some of the ingredients are also organic.

What is the shelf life of your products?

All VAHDAM® India Teas have a shelf-life of 3 years from the ‘Date of Picking/Harvest.’ The ‘Date of Expiry’ is mentioned at the bottom of all our boxes.

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.

Do you ship outside the USA?

Yes, we do ship outside the USA. To date, we have shipped our premium teas to consumers in more than 130 countries around the world. For shipping outside the USA, please visit our global website at www.vahdam.com

Similar to Glenburn First Flush but more mellow

As the tea's description suggests, this is a *very* mellow tea, however I found if you steep it at 95C for 5 minutes you get a full flavor, it's similar to the Glenburn Darjeeling First Flush, mildly vegetal but without the citrus flower notes that made that one such a wonderful surprise for me. A light hint of bitter on the finish.

This is a very fresh tea that brews more like a green tea in liquor despite how dark the leaves actually are. If you can't stand "weak" teas (as in, they don't punch you in the tongue like a cactus) I don't think any amount of steep time will help you like this tea.

One drawback--this doesn't detract from my rating--is that I wish Vahdam gave some indication of caffeine level. I read in a review of the Glenburn that it was a high caffeine tea by someone who was caffeine sensitive, and I'm not... but I have to try and be cautious here. [If you're listening Vahdam!]

Somewhat weak

This was the least expensive of the 5 Darjeeling teas that I bought recently, and, honestly, it takes like it. I find it pretty weak and uninteresting. The color is a nice amber and it does have the distinct Darjeeling taste. No refinement, however.
