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.

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
