This was a new way to prepare tea for me. The tea had a very nice flavor. The place where I bought my tea didn't sell rolled assam but said loose leaf would give the same result. At least that is what they told me ctc stood for. Thanks Girl from India. Bullwinkle

excellent! It had a nice rich flavour. I didn't get that particular brand of tea though I looked for it, but I used Red Label Brand from India and it was delicious. Thanks Faye.

Plain & simple, and easy. This method does indeed produce a very cup of tea - not too strong, not too weak -just right. If you typically enjoy your tea with milk & sugar, then you will enjoy this method. Accurate, clear instructions as well.

Very tasty basic recipe for tea, Fay! I was able to get Assam tea leaves, but I'm not sure if they were CTC or not. Lovely flavor. The quanity of milk was just about perfect for my taste, although I would prefer 1-1 1/2 tsp sugar (I used 2 1/2 actually, just because I know I like a less sweet tea but I wanted to try and stay true to the recipe). I began the recipe with the tea in a tea ball, but then dumped it into the water because I felt it was not infusing properly. Most of the leaves sat at the bottom of the pot anyway as I poured it out, but I strained the rest of the tea leaves out using my french press. BF is still raving about how much he enjoyed his cup- I will surely use this method again! Thanks Fay! :D
