Assam Tea - West Jalinga (CTC)
Organic Assam tea from the West Jalinga estate in Assam, India. This is a “Gunpowder” style of tea leaf, in which the leaves have gone through a process called CTC or crush, tear, curl.
This particular Assam is the one we chose for our Original Chai Blend. It is a beautifully rich black tea, but what we loved about it was how well it complemented the other flavours when they were added. It holds it’s own, but allows for other ingredients to shine. It is also delicious enjoyed on it’s own!
Brewing: 1 tsp per cup. Steep 2-3 minutes.
