Vahdam is known for its sustainably sourced teas from India, and its advent calendar includes some of its best chai selections in the lineup. Chai lovers will find its original masala chai, sweet cinnamon spice masala chai, earl grey masala chai, and a ginger masala chai that are all perfect for keeping warm in the cold months. Green, herbal, and black tea fans won't be short of options either with flavors like turmeric ginger herbal tea tisane, blooming rose black tea, and lemon spice green tea all included in the box. As to when you'll get to try them, the daily surprise is all part of the fun of this advent calendar.
Since all the teas are loose leaf versions, tea fans will undoubtedly love the ritual of opening the festively decorated mini boxes, brewing the tea in their favorite tea pot, watching the leaves expand and infuse, and savoring the different flavors every morning. The advent calendar isn't the only gift set Vahdam offers, though: The brand has London-, Paris-, and Singapore-, and Taj Mahal-themed sets at Nordstrom with loose leaf teas inspired by each location, perfect for tea lovers seeking to reminisce about trips or family visits past.
With many warning of potential supply chain issues and shipping delays this holiday season, experts have recommended starting your festive shopping much earlier than usual. That means it's best to grab Vahdam Teas' advent calendar when it's still available without risk of delay—shop it and more of Vahdam's offerings at Nordstrom now below.
