Khongea Masala Chai Assam CTC-BOP
(Temporarily Out of Stock) Finest Second Flush Assam tea leaves are used to make the CTC-BOP* base for this festival of spices that is Glenburn Estate's Khongea Masala Chai. Drink in (literally!) the wondrous melange of this delicious CTC with spices like cloves, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper---oh my!
*Remember, CTC = Cut, Tear, Curl the leaves into tiny pieces that pack a powerful punch,
and BOP = Broken Orange Pekoe
(where Orange has nothing to do with color, nor flavor; it is thought "Orange" in tea nomenclature refers to the House of Orange when the Dutch ruled the trade seas, including tea trade, and the designation was given to the grade (size & shape) of tea leaves considered worthy of the Royal House).
Glenburn recommends preparing this tea with 2.5g** to 200ml (7 fl.oz.) water. Teacup yields & price-per-teacup are calculated on that basis.
Your own yields may vary depending on whether you like more or fewer tea leaves to your water quantity for strength, or the size of your cups. For example: **Don't have pocket gram scales in your kitchen? Think 1 teaspoon tea leaves per English teacup or increase to 2 teaspoons tea leaves per typical American coffee mug. Obviously, if you go the route of the larger American coffee mug instead of the 7oz teacup, you won't get as many mugs of tea out of the container as we project for the 7oz teacup.
