A dark and malty (and highly caffeinated) CTC Assam. This tea is hearty enough to wake the bears. It also makes a great base for chai! It takes milk and sugar (and maybe a little flavored syrup) like an absolute champ.
CTC stands for "crush, tear, curl" which is a style of processing tea. This method allows for a higher surface area of tea to be available during steeping. This leads to a much stronger flavor! That being said, its very easy to oversteep this style of tea so start slow.
We like to brew this tea with about 1tsp per 8oz of tea just at boiling for about 3 - 3.5 minutes
Ingredients: camellia sinensis
