As winter settles in, our craving for comfort grows stronger. And what better than a hot cup of tea to soothe you. What could be more soothing than a steaming cup of tea? But here's the problem - in the midst of winter chills, who's got time to fuss around with tea leaves and steeping? Hence, the convenience of tea powders emerges as a delightful solution.

One might get confused between tea powder and dust tea. Tea powder is made from tiny bits of leftover tea leaves used in whole-leaf tea production. On the other hand, dust tea or tea leaves consist of an entire leaf, perfect for loose-leaf tea or tea bags. The brewing process and taste also differ between tea powder and tea leaves. For an instant tea cup, you can simply mix tea powder with hot water or milk. It's a quick fix! On the flip side, tea leaves require a few minutes of steeping in hot water to unlock their full flavour and delightful aroma.

But how do you choose the best tea powder in India? The tea experts at Wagh Bakri house have curated a list of 5 instant tea powders perfect for winter. Let's start sipping!
