This is my favourite tea when I do my own massala chai with cinnamon, cardomom, clove, black pepper and milk. I brew the CTC tea with all those ingredients with boiling water and then I add some milk. Is delicious.

This tea alone is really malty and strong, perfect for those who like a strong and malty lack tea in the morning. I can feel the cafeine punch after drinking it.

This is a “kick in the pants” breakfast tea. The fact that it is a CTC means not that it is a “lower grade” tea than orthodox teas….although some folks would like to believe that is the case. There is room in every tea cabinet for CTCs, and as Butiki Teas taught us with Crimson Horizon and Grandpa’s Anytime Tea, some CTCs are extraordinary.
This CTC offering from Golden Tips is a strong, full mouthfeel Assam with traditional malty notes, but also gives an unexpected note of something green….green wood perhaps? Or maybe a touch of vegetal? Not sure exactly (thanks to surgery my palate is still a bit out of whack), but this unexpected note gives the maltiness a different twist of taste. There isn’t a lot of astringency in my cup, but I short-steeped it at 2 min 30 seconds, as I didn’t need hair on my chest today. With milk and honey, this tea is a solid choice for when you hit the snooze button one too many times and now need assistance to get your motor running. I like it.

Another from my Assam Sampler.

I think CTC gets a bad rap. I could have sworn I saw someone review this yesterday but no other reviews are showing up. I pulled it out of the never-ending box of goodies to try this morning. Other people pick out their clothes for the morning, I pick out my tea ahead of time.

One thing I like about CTC is that the tea becomes dark very quickly. It’s almost dark like coffee. This was really good – bold and robust. A perfect kick in the keester early morning screen.


I need my to write my review for this one still but I made some while I was waiting for the water filter to come and it actually tasted good in the icky water. Very comforting in a get your butt out of bed and conquer the world kind of tea.

Glad to hear you enjoyed it and I can’t wait to try it with the good water.
