    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Winter Flush Nilgiri Tea?

    VAHDAM®’s Winter Flush Teas are harvested from the historic and award-winning Glendale Tea Estate in the Nilgiris. Plucked in the first week of January 2022 in peak Winters, these teas are produced only in limited quantities (literally, just 10kgs and 9kgs) making them rare and as exclusive as they are exquisite.

    What is the specialty of the origin?

    The Nilgiris are famous all over the world for their fragrant black teas- delicate and decadent. And in Winters, when the tea-bushes in Darjeeling are resting for their winter hibernations, the tea-bushes in the Nilgiris produce some of their finest and rarest teas. The Nilgiri Mountain Railway (World Heritage Site) also passes through the estate. This estate is quite acclaimed and has been rewarded with recognition like- Las Vegas Tea Auction 2006 and the Golden Leaf Quality Award in 2006 and 2007 by the Tea Board of India. 

    What is the significance of the word Niligiri?

    Winters are a wonderful time in south India, particularly in the Western Ghats where the spectacular Nilgiris region is located. Nil  (blue) Giris (mountains) or the Blue Mountains gets its name from the rare Kuriniji (scientific name - Strobilanthes kunthiana) which blooms once in 12 years- and when it does, it creates a stunning view!

    When and how are these teas plucked?

    Plucked on 6th & 7th January ‘22 from select clonal tea bushes at an elevation of 1,900 meters, the leaves were hand-rolled under the careful supervision of experienced tea-makers. Lightly processed to retain as much of their ‘naturalness’ as possible, you cannot but marvel at these elegant and elusive teas. 

    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.
