India CTC 'Masala Chai' Black Tea


A well rounded taste with a good but non-dominant spiciness with a sweet edge and rounded off nicely with a smooth malty Assam.

Unusually a high grade orthodox Assam is used at the tea base as opposed to the usual CTC. This has the advantage of allowing the drinker to elicit a stronger or lighter taste as desired by utilising a shorter or longer steep.

Tasting Notes:
- Smooth refined taste and wonderful aroma
- Full spicy taste with sweet tones underpinned by a full malty Assam
