    Frequently Asked Questions

    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.

    Love it

    I agree with some of the other reviewers who thought this tea was lighter compared to other black teas. As I like both green and black, I really enjoyed this! It definitely tastes like a black tea to me, but fresher and less fermented. I drink it without cream or sugar.

    Is it green or black?

    I am with Evi - this is a green tea. I had to check the box to make sure I hadn't been shipped the wrong tea.

    Not a black tea

    If you are a fan of green teas I guess this should be fine for you but I was disappointed by it as I was expecting a black tea.
    First time I made it I simply followed the instructions on the label and the tone of the tea was certainly much lighter than the one of the picture above. The result was a tasteless tea!
    Today I used twice the amount and I achieved the dark tone but the brew had that bitter hint that green teas have.
    Even the oolong teas that you have, of which my favourite is the High Mountain Darjeeling Second Flush Oolong, seems way more fermented than this one!

    First order Bliss

    This was my first order from Vahdam. If future orders go this smooth, I look forward to a long lasting relationship. The Dharamsala Mann Kangra First Flush is a pleasant Light all day tea. I was surprised that it’s a black tea. The teaser sample with my order was also a nice touch. Looking forward to ordering more of your teas. Thank you
