    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Second Flush?
    Second Flush is the second harvest of the year. In Darjeeling, the Second Flush teas are harvested at the onset of Summer. Plucked during the peak in months of May and June, Second Flush teas are renowned for their full-bodied and crimson-golden cups, with a mellow sweetness and distinct fruity flavours.
    What makes Second Flush teas highly-prized around the world?
    Second Flush teas from Darjeeling are highly sought after by connoisseurs for their signature fruity flavours and rich cups. It is also during the Second Flush that the elusive and exclusive MUSCATEL teas are produced at select tea estates for a short period of about two weeks.
    What is so special about Single Estate?
    Unlike most tea blends that contain teas from from multiple estates, Single Estate teas are sourced only from one particular estate, and generally from one particular section of the estate of either China or Clonal bushes. Also, most Single Estate teas are from a specific season - First, Second or Autumn Flush. VAHDAM® India's Single Estate teas also mention Invoice No. and Date of Plucking of the teas - identifying the exact lot that is available only with VAHDAM® India and no one else!
    Are these really from the famous Darjeeling tea-growing region?
    Yes! All 100% pure Darjeeling teas come with the Tea Board of India's DARJEELING TEA logo. This logo is allowed only for 100% genuine and authentic Darjeeling teas and is a guarantee that you are buying certified Darjeeling tea.
    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.

    Ein milder Tee mit dem Geschmack von Blütenduft

    Der Duft des Tees in der Packung erinnert an eine Blume, ein süßer Duft der bezaubert.

    Ich lasse diesen Tee etwas länger ziehen als üblich.

    Die ersten Aufgüsse haben eine florale Note nach dem Duft einer Kirschblüte oder Ähnlichem.

    Ich gieße diesen Tee bis zu fünf mal auf.

    Die ersten drei oder vier Aufgüsse genieße ich mit Hafermilch.

    Die weitern ohne Zusatz oder mit Birkenzucker.

    Ein sehr schmeichelnder Tee, den ich im Moment vor allen anderen Tees bevorzuge.

    This first flush was perfect.5 Star but the previous order Runguli Rungilot had 20% tea dust (particles)at the bottom of the packet.Very disappointing at £30 with postage.
