Halmira Tea is always working on providing the tea connoisseurs with the best experience of drinking tea. While there are some who enjoys the traditional form of tea, others enjoy the modern blends to bring some twist. What if Halmira provides you with the best of both worlds? Discover Halmira's CTC With Orthodox Tea and the factors that make it so special.
The Uniqueness : Though a blend, CTC with orthodox tea will provide you with a traditional taste and aroma that will rejuvenate your senses at any given time of a day. Combining the traits of Assam CTC and orthodox tea leaves, it is a treat for anyone who is sold on tea or anyone who is looking to sip an aromatic and flavorsome cuppa.
What You See : On seeing in raw form, you'll come across a grainy texture mixed with long leaves. The blend mainly consists of CTC tea leaves with a decent amount of Assam Orthodox tea leaves, thereby adding to the unique quality of the tea. Upon brewing, you’ll come across a dark amber or coppery brown cuppa.
What You Feel : If you taste the lea leaves raw, the leaves will taste mildly bitter with now such overpowering aroma. When brewed, the tea will exhibit a sweet smell. Upon sipping, initially the tea will taste almost bland with a bitter end note. After sometime, you’ll feel a sweet sensation lingering in your mouth.
What Brings Out its Best : Bring four cups of water to boil. Then add 2 teaspoons of CTC with orthodox tea leaves in hot water and steep it for 2-3 minutes. If you want a stronger taste you can steep it longer. Strain the tea leaves and serve it hot. For making it a tad more flavourful, you can add milk/sugar/cream or a few drops of lemon juice.
Best Enjoyed With : The tea is best enjoyed with biscuits (except cream-biscuits) and Indian snacks/namkeen.
