Enjoying a tea with a splash of milk is never wrong. But some teas are better suited and adapted than others. The production technique "Crush, tear, curl - (CTC)", originally from Kenya, spread throughout South Asia during colonialism. CTC is a method for mostly black tea where the leaves pass through a series of cylindrical rollers with toothed blades that crush, tear and roll the tea into small hard granules. The technique exposes more cells in the leaf and thus increases the oxidation of the tea, resulting in a stronger and fuller cup.
This unique CTC Belseri is 100% organic and is picked from the 1000 hectare plantations located on the lush northern shores of the Brahmaputra. Teas produced at Belseri are malty, with a fuller character. Located on the banks of the Brahmaputra River, Belseri Tea Estate is the largest organic tea estate in Assam. The farm produces about 5,00,000 kg of CTC and orthodox teas. It has characteristics that are different from other Tea plantation.
The farm is supplied with organic means to more easily produce stronger teas that are also clean and healthy. The tea bush produces its own compost and renews the soil naturally. Predators such as birds and spiders fight the natural pests, in an environment that is close to nature and is not influenced by artificial fertilizers.
