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.

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!

eh Review by Alejandro
Average Review:
Makes a muddy brew with none of the subtleties of the other Harney teas I've tried. Makes Lipton seem light and balanced. Like heartburn in a cup... (Posted on 3/4/14)

brisk is an understatement Review by Jane
Average Review:
If you are used to loose leaf Assams, this is much more harsh. Do not oversteep, it is strong and bitter. (Posted on 2/25/14)

Excellent Review by Dawn
Average Review:
Love this tea and use it both alone and in my own blends including using your decaf OG Assam 1/2 and 1/2 with this to cut my caffeine intake. I get so many tea drinkers turned onto this tea when they visit my home. (Posted on 2/25/14)

Reliable and yummy Review by Dorb
Average Review:
I drink this every morning with milk or for a special treat I make chai. I always feel satiated and warmed no jittery feeling nice, but a mellow pick up. (Posted on 12/11/13)

Great value Review by Fagel
Average Review:
This is not my favorite tea. That title belongs to a tea sold in a little tea shop in the Society Hill section of Philadelphia. But that whole leaf Assam is more than twice the price of your CTC Assam (less than half, once I add the price of shipping to yours) and it was time to economize. I ordered many samples from you, and this one came the closest in strength and body. If I could, I would give it 4 1/2 stars. (Posted on 10/18/13)

The strength is overhyped. Review by Spike Sagal
Average Review:
I expected it to brew to a black and bitter liquor that gives me a mega-jolt, but it's nothing like that. Amber-brown and medium body. (Posted on 7/22/13)
