  • 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.

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.

Hi Robin Thank you so much for your encouraging feedback & for being a part of the VAHDAM tea family. Hope to keep serving you with our collection of garden fresh teas.

Delicious

Temi Organic Sikkim Black Tea is one of the three teas that I ordered recently. I cannot believe how good these teas are. Sikkim is similar to others that I've ordered from Vahdam in its 'sweet wood' aroma and flavor. I like it with a little sugar, and sometimes with a little raw milk. My wife and I drink Vahdam teas every evening.

Tantalising Indeed

This is a wonderful tea! It is reminiscent of a fine second flush Darjeeling but it has it’s own unique character which must be due to differences in soil and climate. As Sikkim Tea doesn’t have quite the same cachet as Darjeeling it also punches above it weight price wise. Do give it a try.
