Our Review
CTC means the tea has been processed in a " Cut, Tear, and Curl" machine. Tea leaves are shoved in the top, totally destroyed and then reformed into pellets. These pellets turn brown (oxidize ) very quickly. This makes for the super-brisk tea. Most tea is made like this in Assam because it easy to make and there is much demand for this style.
Dry Leaves Dark leaves, cut into small uniform pieces. (Cut, tear, curl)
Liquor Dark brown.
Aroma Assertive, sweet-charred aromas like with roasted sweet onions.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This is about as full bodied a tea as we sell. It is intensely brisk or astringent. Most people like to add milk.
Flavors Most people drink this tea for its strength, the flavors are secondary, especially if milk and sugar are added. There are subtle roasted malt notes.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

CTC Assam

Tea as the Indians drink it. This Assam has a striking amber color, rich flavor, and is full bodied as well. It is a key ingredient in several of our blends, including the East Frisian and Indian Spice. It takes milk and sugar and can also be enjoyed solo. An “espresso-style” tea!
