Our Bureau, New Delhi
Vahdam Teas, a  vertically-integrated, online-first tea brand from India, has launched an exclusive range of premium unblended single-estate teas and gourmet in-house blends for duty-free outlets.

These products are targeted at the discerning global travellers passing through the five mega junctions – Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi; Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai; Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Hyderabad; Chennai International Airport, and Dabolim International Airport, Goa.

It featured on Oprah’s Favourite Things last year, and the Oprah Chai Tea Trio has also been exclusively launched in duty-free outlets.

Vahdam Teas has been disrupting the supply chain of tea by offering garden fresh tea leaves to consumers across the globe in the shortest possible time by leveraging technology and cutting out unnecessary middlemen.

These teas do not travel in containers for months before being packaged and sold. All the tea is procured directly from plantations and tea growers and within days of harvest, the packaged product is shipped directly from source in India to various parts of the world.

Vahdam Teas has registered a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 200 per cent in the last two years and the brand has emerged as the fastest-growing tea brand.

On the association, Bala Sarda, founder and chief executive officer, Vahdam Teas, said, “We are excited to finally launch in India via the exclusive Travel Retail channels. In order to better cater to the travelling consumer, the brand’s line of travel retail products have been tailored to be more compact, travel-friendly, and can be used for gifting purposes to loved ones as well as professional contacts.”

“Going forward, we plan to also enter India’s modern retail and select general trade stores aggressively in top cities,” he added.

In addition to this, the company goes the extra mile in working on micro-social issues like education and health, which can positively impact the lives of our farmers. With its social initiative, TEAch Me, launched in 2018, one per cent of its revenue goes towards the education of its tea growers’ children.
