Frequently Asked Questions

Know you Tea Better.

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.

If my vacuum-sealed pack is not tight, is the tea still fresh and consumable?

Our teas are vacuum-packed fresh at source in India. At times, when you open the box, you might find the vacuum bag loose. This is completely normal & has no impact on the freshness of the tea. The pouch is still sealed & all stale air has been flushed out. So, cut open the bag & brew yourself a cup of tea.

Kind of a 'cooling incense' style of tea

In short, I'd say that this tea comes across as in the same family as sandalwood or patchouli. There's an earthy, plantlike coolness of patchouli in the flavor, but then-as in the description--a definite hint of wood notes. It's similar to both without being like either of them.

There is a strong "black tea" bitterness and astringency that hits me after the initial 'swoop' of the aforementioned flavor. I steeped a heaping teaspoonful @95C for 4 minutes to get here. 8oz of water. Since I live in the desert, to me this tea makes me think of taking a nice dark break in the shade, preferably in a cool, damp space.

I'm not really a fan of sweet tea, but I think if you added a teaspoon of honey here it might make the flavor pop.

Purchased just before x-mas 2020.

Great Temi Tea!

My husband has been drinking this tea for several years now and it remains his favorite tea!! Temi tea can be very hard to find, so I was thrilled to find that Vahdam Teas almost always has it in stock :)

Tantalizing Temi Sikkim Black Tea

As a lover of good black tea, I decided to try this tea, and am so glad that I did. It has a smooth, mellow feel; and is robust enough for that morning cuppa yet calming and pleasant for enjoying with afternoon company.
