Where are your teas from ?
We source our teas from all parts of India from certified tea estates in Kangra, Darjeeling, Assam, Nilgiri & Sikkim. We also import some select lines from China, Taiwan & Japan.
Are your teas Organic ?
Some of the selections are Organic and that is clearly communicated in the product listing. All our teas are EU Compliant and grown under the strict vigil of the Tea Board of India. Our factory is audited under the Rainforest Alliance & Organic Standards.
Do you use artificial flavour or are they natural ?
We blend our teas with only natural herbs, spices & flowers. Our teas are rich in nutrients and 100% healthy. Its what we believe in, its what we are proud of.
Are the teas suitable for a Vegan or Keto Diet ?
Yes, the teas are 100% Vegan and grown naturally. Teas contain a very small amount of Carbohydrate and they will suit most diets that prescribe low carbohyrdrates.
What about allergies? Can i be allergic to the tea or do i need to read the ingredients ?
All blends are different and they contain different ingredients. You will need to read the label and check if it contains an ingredient that you are allergic to. Usually none of teas contain any ingredient that fall under the prescribed Allergen list.
Does the tea contain Nicotine ?
No, not at all. This is a rumour that holds no truth. Tea contains Caffeine & Theanine which are are good for you.
Does Orange Pekoe Tea contain the fruit Orange ?
Orange pekoe actually refers to the cut of the leaf, a term usually used for Orthodox/Long Leaf variety of teas. This has nothing to do with oranges. It was probably given the name orange pekoe because of the orange liquor the tea leaves produced when you brew them.
Are Black teas bad for health and green tea good for heath ?
Health scientists who have studied tea believe that all forms of tea coming from the tea plant- Camellia Sinenses contain rich amounts of Antioxidants and black & green teas are both equally healthy.
Does Drinking too much tea makes you unhealthy ?
Its how you consume it that makes it healthy or unhealthy. On its own, tea is an extremely healthy beverage. If we add too much sugar to the tea or any syrup (like we do in commercially sold Iced Teas), that's when we make the tea unhealthy.
Is tea better than coffee ?
We think it is ! Tea contains lower levels of caffeine (just enough to keep you awake without making your jittery) and in addition to that, it contains a compound called Theanine that relieves stress, think clearer & puts you in a calm state of mind.
Tea with milk is a bad idea ?
Not at all. Some teas blend well with milk and it balances out the bitter tannins. Some teas are to be consumed straight. There are no rules, just different types of teas and different ways of enjoying them. For example a Darjeeling wouldn't be the best bet with Milk but you would appreciate it in your Assam.
