Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Customer Reviews

Based on 21 reviews

My experience with this tea - as well as the Assam Gold tea I bought earlier - is that the flavor is not very strong, rather subtle and mild. But you get a wonderful feeling in your mouth, and I’m not exaggerating to say it leaves a kind of a feeling of happiness for quite some time after sipping your cup. Something you don’t get with lesser teas!


This is the only tea my partner will drink. The difference between this tea and any of the ones you can buy in stores is markedly. Absolutely worth your while ordering this tea just for its flavour but Vahdam also do good works in their community.

Joanne King
Pure fresh Assam

The taste of a high quality tippy leaf assam tea is so pure compared to normal CTC tea. Not bitter, but malty and with a freshness that enlivens the palate first thing in the morning. And with Vahdam tea, you know the tea garden and picking date. Delivery to Australia from India is fast, and the website easy to use. No worries.

Good choice on the tea market

I'm glad that there is a choice on the tea market. The quality of the teas is good and adequate prices. Free very fast delivery if to buy from 70 $ is excellent. Wish your company prosperity! ... Only one thing I interesting: "I also bought the most expensive from the teas, but it never looks like full tea leaf, always cut. Why? Because it should be more expensive or because of the restrictions of the package?". Thank you!

Rich malty aroma

Rich malty aroma and mouthfeel with flowery undertone. One of the best Assam I've ever had.
