    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. 

    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.

    How and where are the ingredients sourced from?

    Our Pyramid-shaped Nylon Tea bags make for large, sturdy tea bags which don't tear up easily and brew a large cup. The pyramid shape allows more room for the tea leaves to unfurl, offering a rich and flavorful cup of tea, as against low-grade tea dust used by many orthodox brands. Our tea bags are heat-sealed and high-density enveloped.

    My Favourite Tea !

    I really love the rich savoury notes in the Smoky Assam Souchong Tea it gives my morning cuppa a bit of extra oomph without being overpowering as Lapsang Souchong can be.
