Breakfast Assam | Black Tea
The everyday Assam. Hearty and malty without sacrificing brightness or clarity. It’s simple, no-nonsense, and delivers a great tea for the buck. It comes from our friends at the Chota Tingrai estate in the Tinsukia district of Assam, India.
This tea is made in the “CTC” style, which stands for “Crush-Tear-Curl,” a common manufacturing process that does exactly what it says. The outcome is a spherically shaped tea that steeps up strong, direct, and affordable.
This is our first choice to use as a base for TeaSource Chai.
