There's quite a lot of buzz created around Vahdam brand, and I regret to inform you that there's really nothing exceptional about this tea. It probably tastes better than the average green tea from your local supermarket, but the difference in price makes it hard to recommend Vahdam because you'll be buying economy product at premium price. I ended up using this tea to make kombucha - and it turned out pretty good, but it seems like it's the only way I can enjoy this tea.
The tea is excellent. Having been a green tea drinker for over 30 years, this is one of my favourites. I would like to comment on the packaging though which arrives in a cardboard box, a non recyclable vacuum bag with the tea in it ( AND a separate (plastic?) non recyclable sleeve to decant the tea into so that you can keep it airtight. There must be a way to deliver this in a simple re closable sleeve - the same type as my coffee beans arrive in, which is a, waxed on the outside paper bag. Thus saving plastic use.
The tea seems of good quality and has an earthy smell. It’s about half the price of the specialist teas I get on line (I usually get 50g for the same price, I normally get Sichuan Due) I thought this would be packed with flavour as it is so well packaged. I left it to brew for 15 minutes, that’s right not 3 or 5 but 15 minutes I like it strong. The colour was dark but that’s it, no great aroma and literally no taste ( there is some taste to be fair) but 15 minutes of brewing to have a flat taste. I’m sorry but this falls below the mark: edit, I was wrong it does have an aroma and a nutty full taste. I normally use one pinch per cup, I used three pinches this morning and it is a decent cup.
I ordered this after purchasing a variety pack of teas from the same company. I have tried several supermarket green teas in the past, but this tea opened my eyes and my tastebuds to the subtle flavours of fresh Himalayan green tea. I love the fact that the tea is clearly packaged with care and I was impressed with the attention to detail with regards to the storage bag and label supplied separately to the consumer. It is expensive when compared to other products that I have tried but I am willing to pay the price just for the flavour and freshness of the product combined with the ethos of the company.
Kashmiri Chai aka Noon Chai or Pink Chai is a staple in Pakistani homes. Having tried few green tea leaves, I am happy to say this brand is superb! The green tea is superior quality as the Pink Colour of Chai came out perfect. It's impossible to have pink colour if the green tea leaves are adulterated.
Very much like this tea, not too strong and not too weak. I try to avoid teas from China and Japan so great to find this natural one from India. I only drink organic loose teas and have a vast selection of herbal teas in stock. Would like this to come with 'organic' certification and also tested for mould (which can be such a big problem with teas and is becoming increaslingly topical, see bullet proof coffee).
The box was tiny - a lot smaller than I expected but once you empty the contents into the inner resealable bag it does expand a bit - still doesn't look anywhere near as large as the photo on the listing here though. I've never tried green tea before so can't comment on how it compares to others, but it seems OK. Doesn't taste of anything but again, not sure if that's what to expect. I'll stick with it for the supposed health benefits and if I were to order more, I would reorder from this company again - just the bigger bag next time as it's better value.
I purchased this tea to help me lose weight. It reduced the bloating in my stomach, it made me feel relaxed and calm. I usually don't drink green tea without sugar but this tastes great and smells heavenly when you open the package. It's the best green tea that I've ever had. I would definitely purchase again. I would recommend to drink two days out of the week and not everyday because too much of anything is bad for you.
