Masala Chai CTC

Masala Chai CTC

Regular price $16.00

Chai is a popular tea from India made from a blend of strong black teas and warm, aromatic Indian spices and herbs, including cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and pepper. It's commonly enjoyed with milk and sugar, but is also great by itself.

This tea is a CTC, which stands for “Crush Tear Curl." CTC is a processing method where Assam black tea leaves are machine processed and usually fully oxidized. It's considered lesser quality to orthodox Assam, but produces a more robust and rich brew.
