This fast-steeping Organic tea from the Dinjoye Gardens in the Assam region of India is known around the world for its full-bodied flavor that combines well with milk. This grade is found in a host of English and Irish morning blends. Think of it as comfort food!

CTC stands for Cut-Tear-Curl, a process invented by the English when they established many of the gardens in India and Sri Lanka. The tea leaves are put through a Rotorvane machine (see Bruce Richardson's photo), which eviscerates the leaves. This makes a finished tea which is concentrated into tiny pellets. This ensures a fast steep and a bold cup of tea that is filled with tannins that love to bind with milk.

Rich and Deep

This organic Assam CTC is amazing. I've been purchasing cheap Assam CTC from local Indian groceries for years. This tea is so much more rich and fresh than anything I've purchased before. The depth of flavor and lack of bitterness (CTC processing always makes for a very strong tea, but the cheap stuff was kind of acrid) surprised me. I am grateful to have found Ellwood's tea and will be using it to make my homemade masala chai mix from now on.
