    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are Black Teas ?

    Black Teas are fully oxidized / fermented teas with withered black leaves and a high caffeine content. Darjeeling and Assam are two of the most renowned Tea-producing regions in India, their teas revered for the delicate and bold flavor profiles, invigorating aromas, and strength. Black Teas are incredibly healthy and have abundant beneficial antioxidants that boost overall health.

    What are the health benefits of Black Tea ?

    Black Teas are a rich source of antioxidants called 'Polyphenols'. These help in reducing cell damage and help in boosting overall immunity. The 'flavonoids' present in Black tea boost heart health by reducing bad cholesterol (LDL), triglyceride levels etc, reduce high blood pressure. Black Tea also helps promote the growth of good bacteria in the gut and helps strengthen the body's immunity. Black tea helps also improves focus and memory. You can read of the health benefits of tea here.

    What are the different types of Black Teas available on Vahdam?

Along with this, we also have exclusive in-house variants like the Earl Grey Black Tea, English Breakfast Black Tea, Oakwodd smoked Black teas, Spiced Black Teas known as Chai Teas.

    What is the best way to make Black Teas?

    The best way to make a perfect cup of signature black tea is to get 200ml of freshly-filtered water to a boil (90-100 degrees celsius) and add 2 grams (0.07 oz) of your favorite black tea to it. Switch off the heat, cover it, and let the tea steep for 3-5 minutes depending on how strong you like your cup to be. Strain into a cup and sip while hot! The best time to have a cup of black tea is the morning or early evening. Since black tea has considerable caffeine (lesser than coffee) and hence should be avoided before bedtime. You can add a splash of milk to your black teas or have it plain as well. If you are wondering whether to add milk first or tea first to your cup, then you can read all about it here.

    Is Black Tea rich in antioxidants?

    Yes, Black Tea is the second-richest in beneficial antioxidants, after Green Tea. Read about Black Teas Vs Green Teas here. Teas from various elevations, flushes and gardens vary in their antioxidant capacity.
