Pouring Tea On A Tea Cup

As a long-standing tea obsessive, I’m a huge fan of the tea makers over at VAHDAM. In fact, I first discovered VAHDAM right here at Kitchn back in 2020! After reading one editor’s glowing review of the brand’s masala chai, I immediately picked up a bag — to say I was floored by the richness and boldness of the flavor would be an understatement. Since then, it’s been a staple in my tea cabinet, along with the brand’s Ginger Mint green tea and its delectable Golden Milk powder. So, when word got to me that the brand was expanding into the spice market, I knew one thing immediately: I needed to tell you, dear reader. Finally, the day is here. Today, VAHDAM launches VAHDAM Spices, a collection of India’s finest spices, all sourced garden-fresh, packaged in India, and shipped directly to you. Let’s break down the new line as well as the brand new Kitchen Essentials Box, your newest pantry essential.

The first release from VADHAM Spices, the Kitchen Essentials box comes with nine “origin spices” designed for everyday cooking. In this box, you’ll find the following spices: turmeric, black pepper, clove, cinnamon, ginger, cumin, onion, garlic, and Himalayan pink salt. But what makes these spices different from others that may already be on your shelf? It’s all about the quality, baby. Just as it does its teas, VAHDAM sources its spices directly from plantations and farmers within days of harvest to bring you the freshest, highest-quality, sealed-at-the-source Indian spices on the market today.

“India is a magical ‘land of spices’ and provides the world with the largest variety of delicious spices. However, there is an absence of a home-grown brand, and the broken supply chain ensures that consumers don’t get a fresh product, while farmers do not get the right price for their produce. Additionally, spices are globally grown by spraying copious amounts of pesticides, insecticides & toxins to increase farm yield, which causes a serious health risk to consumers,” said Bala Sarda, CEO and Founder of VAHDAM. “We wanted to solve this problem and have spent the last two years building a supply chain of India’s finest organic spice farms with our partners. We made a conscious decision to bring sustainable, clean, and fresh spices to consumers around the world for all their cooking, wellness, and beauty needs.”

Ready to upgrade your spice cabinet? The Kitchen Essentials box retails at $100, but for a limited time, you can save 20 percent and pick it up for just $79.99. So ditch the sub-par spices and treat yourself to the good stuff — your recipes deserve it! Plus, if the quality of their tea says anything about how their spices will be, well, I’ll gladly make some room in my spice cabinet.
