SOURCING | PROCESSING | BLENDING | PROCESSING LEAVES
We procure our Green teas from the prestigious Best Indian tea estates, located in Darjeeling, Assam, Siliguri nestled in the lap of Himalayan mountain range. Our black tea leaves are sourced from estates situated on the south bank of the Brahmaputra River, in Assam, depending on their sizes. A double cone blender prepares a homogeneous blend of natural raw herbs with the finest quality of orthodox tea leaves. Finally, this blend of herbs & tea leaves is packed in pouches for labeling. Our herbal blends are 100% natural & do not contain any artificial flavoring, extracts, scenting or coloring. Further, each of the ingredients is tested for pesticides, aflatoxins & heavy metals to ensure product safety. Once sourced, the tea leaves are withered for about 8-24 hours. Once dry, they are steamed to prevent neutralization of enzymes & oxidation. This enables the leaves to retain their authentic green color & remain enriched with antioxidants & polyphenols. After this they are rolled to different degrees & dried again. Then they are dried in large mechanical dryers on conveyor belts at high temperatures to eliminate moisture. Finally, various grades of tea leaves are separated
