ASSAM CALCUTTA

Black tea | India

Pack 50g
Tin 50g

TASTING NOTE

A strong bodied tea with the distinctive mellowness of the Assam region in India. Goes well with milk. 

Tribute to the city-state of Indian tea Calcutta, this blend of Assam black teas, located north of India, is composed by CTC (Crushing – Tearing – Curling) black tea and standard tea leaves. The blend has a strong nature with some wooded and cocoa notes but stays sweet at mouth, low in tannin compared to many teas of the same type. We particularly suggest it as a morning tea, tasted straight, with milk, sugar or honey.
A sure value among Assam teas.

 

Ingredients: Black tea
Type of tea and origin: Black tea blend from Assam (India), CTC and whole leaves
Can be re-infused: 1 - 2 times

LEARN MORE ABOUT BLACK TEA AND ITS BENEFITS

A black tea is a tea for which the oxidation has been allowed to come to an end. That is, during the manufacturing process, the tea leaves were allowed to oxidize completely in contact with air and moisture. Originally green, these leaves then take on a brown or even black color. Oxidation allows better preservation of the tea leaves and black tea can be stored for several years without losing its aroma, while green tea should be stored for 12 to 18 months on average. Black tea has many benefits. Rich in antioxidants, it is beneficial for the cardiovascular system and improves blood circulation. It also has a high theine content.

In India and England, these teas are often accompanied by a hint of milk and sugar. They can be consumed in the morning, in particular CTC teas (manufacturing process in which the leaves are rolled on themselves and which therefore concentrates more theine). The story goes, that in the 17th century, a shipment of green tea from China to England would have completely oxidized during transport at sea (several months), due to the heat and humidity. of the hold. Far from refusing the cargo, Westerners tasted this "oxidized" tea and were immediately won over by its rich and deep taste. India, the cradle of English black tea, is the main black tea producing region, including the gardens of Darjeeling, Assam and Nilgiri. You can also find teas in Sri Lanka (Ceylon), China and Nepal. In China, black tea is called "Red tea" in reference to the more or less copper color of its liquor.
