CTC sounds like a company’s acronym, no? While it is an acronym, it actually stands for the process that defines this type of black tea: crush, tear, and curl.
This Assam brews a strong, vibrant and malty beverage. The aroma is light, slightly airy and clearly astringent. The flavor is leafy, malty and similar to the breakfast teas based off the tea grown in the Assam region of India. The liquor is super dark rustic red.
