The smaller cut leaf gives this robust Assam an even chocolate color and granular shape. Machine processed CTC ( Crush, Tear & Curl) teas make dependable breakfast companions and stand up well to milk and sugar.
Tip: 3g tea leaves (1 heaping teaspoon) per 8oz. cup of filtered, boiling water. Allow to brew 4 min.
Usually excellent, but noticeably weaker last batch!, 4th Nov 2019
Reviewer: Miriam Paeslack
I have bought this tea for years and rely on its great strong Assam aroma. However, the last delivery is noticeably weaker. Using the exact same brewing time and tea amount, the tea is less aromatic and tastes less fresh. I very much hope this is an exception and I got the last scraps of a big batch that turned a bit stale.
Best black tea, 10th Jul 2019

I have been getting this black tea for years. I have tried other more expensive black teas and keep coming back to this one. Except for a high tea experience, I have never experienced such amazing tasting teas.

Subtle malty mellow aroma and smooth taste, 25th Feb 2019
Reviewer: Mary Ann Yedinak
When I need a midmorning break, I often turn on the water and prepare my strainer with the loose leaf Assam CTC BOP1. A few crystals of rock sugar or a drizzle of honey accentuates the tea, as does a splash of milk or cream. Fine to enjoy by the cup itself or with a biscuit/cookie that is only slightly sweet. This is also a tea that tops off a meal and invites others to sit and chat awhile as a pot of tea is shared by all. A wonderful addition to any lover of fine black teas!
A good wake-me-up morning tea., 1st May 2018

One of my favorite sipping in the morning teas.......I have steeped it twice and used less water the 2nd time and been very happy with the results. Good on it's own, with lemon and a bit of sugar. I think TeaG teas are best drunk on their own, without any food to "corrupt" the taste the first time around......otherwise you miss the distinct nuances of each different type.

Very fragrant for the price I pay - I am happy with this Ananda Assam tea. For Assam, not bitter, classy, and satisfying for the morning milk tea. Although, I will not brew a second cup. First brew is wonderful.
