I just love to drink Assam CTC tea!!! Don’t you? Well, there are many drinkers who love Assam blends a lot but do not have a clear notion of what CTC is. Is that totally wrong? Hope not. What do you mean by CTC Assam? In Assam, tea is produced from the plant called Camellia Sinensis Assamica. Now, all teas in this region are not manufactured in the same way. There is an Orthodox method and a CTC method. CTC stands for ‘Crush Tear Curl’. Assam CTC often contains blends from different plantations. After steeping Assam CTC, you will get amber colored liquor with a malty flavor. It is especially for the drinkers who love strong black tea. A mistake that you can often make with any kind of tea is its storage. It often happens that when you first start brewing a blend, you are mesmerized with its tantalizing aroma, rich flavor and freshness. But with time, it is all gone. Why the same tea tastes so dull after a few days of opening it? The reason is pretty simple – you have not stored it properly. Same thing can happen with Assam CTC tea and you might lose its distinct flavor after some days. So, let us save you from such dreadful experience.
