The everyday tea of India. No frills, just a nice strong cup. Small round granules of tea produced in the Crush Tear & Curl style (CTC). Certified Organic. Good with milk. Does justice to the phrase, "If Strength is your Weakness, then Assam is your Tea".  Definitely a strong cup!

Best black tea ever

Strong, deep and delicious

Perfect cup of tea!

This is my go-to breakfast tea. The Assam CTC is a good, brisk tea with a full flavor that is rich and carmelly without any bitterness. I prefer mine with a touch of honey and milk. It's an excellent value for organic assam, and I frequently recommend it to friends who are looking for a good breakfast tea to start their day. I buy this by the pound so I never run out!

Tea Education

CTC stands for Crush, Tear and Curl and the manufacture is handled mostly via machines. This contrasts with "orthodox" manufacture which is largely via hand with only the final few steps requiring machines. CTC manufacture results in small granules of tea and they are sorted into grades and sizes such as BP (Broken Pekoe), BOP (Broken Orange Pekoe), PF (Pekoe Fannings). The smaller the granule, the stronger the tea and the more residual sediment that remains. We typically offer a CTC.BOP grade which still offers the strength of a typical Assam CTC without it producing too much dust or residue in the cup.
