Applause CTC Assam Black Tea

Applause CTC Assam Black Tea

Unlike orthodox grade of teas which are long leaf or broken, CTC (Crush, Tear, Curl) teas are granular in form and follow an entirely different process of manufacturing, even though they are all produced from the same tea plant.Depending on the climatic conditions, different estates specialize in manufacturing different grades of tea.

Assam is known to produce some premium CTC teas every year. Our Applause CTC black tea blend consists of expertly chosen teas which offer a refreshingly  distinct taste and strength to enliven ones morning like none other. Even though it can be brewed plain and served without milk, CTC teas when prepared with milk follow a different  preparation process. Unlike orthodox teas, CTC teas are boiled along with milk and water upto 100 degrees to ensure maximum release of flavor and strength.

The bright red liquor  in the cup after preparation leaves a  prominent  aftertaste in the mouth. A must-have for tea lovers who like their cup of tea extremely strong.
