What makes Assam CTC tea so special? Read on in this compilation of the best features of this wonderful brew…

First things first. To begin with, it is important to know how to make this tea the right way in order to reap the maximum benefits. Make sure the cup or teapot is half full with hot water so that the water can move around in the vessel. Roll the hot water around in the teapot or cup to make sure that the container becomes warm. Then, pour out the water and put the teabag inside. Add hot water and let the teabag infuse its flavour into the liquid. Let it steep for three minutes and re-infuse again to get a stronger brew. It is the presence of heat that brings out the beautiful flavour of this tea.

What is Assam CTC. The addendum CTC stands for Curl, Tear, Cut. During the tea manufacturing process the large tea leaves are processed in the machine through a series of cylindrical rollers with several sharp teeth that crush, tear and curl the tea into small, hard pellets. This replaces the final stage of tea manufacture where the leaves are rolled into strips. CTC teas usually produce a rich russet colour and a fine aroma too. It has a slightly bitter flavour that can be offset with the use of milk, sugar or any other sweetener.

As to why it is such a special tea, the reasons are many. Tea lovers will unanimously agree that since this brew is full of polyphenols, it can boost the dopamine in the areas of the brain that helps you feel happier, less stressed and more relaxed. Among the other benefits, Assam CTC tea checks issues of bone loss in elderly people and thereby protects them. It helps those who are fitness conscious to undergo difficult workout sessions with ease. This tea also knocks off additional calories and aids the body to utilise fat as fuel instead of storing it.

According to some studies, the anti-oxidant properties in this tea reduce the risk of cancer though this this property is still being researched. The flavonoids in this tea prevent the build-up of plaque inside the arteries and reduces the risk of cardio vascular diseases. It is also a mild laxative and therefore helps in digestion. Despite the fact that it is a tea that can calm you, it is also useful in keeping you mentally alert and is known to prevent neuro-degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

All in all, Assam CTC is a special tea in more ways than one. It is a stimulant and a tonic too. During the festive season, when you are inundated with all kinds of heavy foods and sweets, take a break to sip on this beverage. It will soothe your body and warm your soul, and make you feel wonderful enough to enjoy the rest of the season with good health and cheer.

September is poised to be full of stormy winds and rain-laden clouds, almost like the early monsoon days of the season used to be. There is no better time to sit back and enjoy the soothing sweetness of a good cup of tea and savour its goodness all day. And if you need a tea to transport you to beverage paradise, the Seventh Heaven Tea from Sublime is your best bet for the season.

New research has found that a perfect cup of tea can chase away the blues and bring in the winds of happiness into your life, but there’s some more good news too. Chinese researchers have recently found that the right blend of tea can refresh the mind, make you more creative and make the cognitive functions of the brain much more sharp than before.

Seventh Heaven Tea is essentially black tea with the flavours of fruit, and is chock-full of beauty and health benefits, and all the other fine properties of a distinctive tea blend. Why should you opt for this tea? Read on…

To begin with black tea which is produced by oxidising the leaves of Camellia sinensis and allowed to dry in order to release the moisture, is always on top of the popularity charts due to the way it is manufactured. As soon as the plants lose all the moisture possible, it is rolled and exposed to high temperatures. The level of oxidation determines the colour and flavour of the tea, which can range from deep amber to warm brown with golden tones. It is one of the most loved teas in the world due to its ability to boost heart health, reduce high cholesterol, boost bone health and increase your mental focus.

This tea is best known for the fact that it contains polyphenols that have anti-oxidant properties which can
revent DNA damage. This means that you can delay ageing and all its degenerative consequences by many years. The compounds in black tea, namely theaflavins and thearubigins are loaded with health benefits. The tea is strong, powerful, bold and delicious, making it one of the finest teas globally.

Among its many other health benefits, this tea prevents heart diseases and is known to reverse the abnormal functioning of blood vessels, thereby leading to decreased risk of contracting heart diseases. It is also associated with reduced levels of fasting blood glucose and as its polyphenols lower the glycaemic index in the body.

But the beauty of Seventh Heaven tea does not end there. It is also infused with a natural aroma and a wonderful fruit bouquet. The freeze dried tropical fruit that is blended into this tea makes it much more special. Many tea manufacturers add a hint of fruity flavour to black tea as it can be too strong.

Fruits like oranges, watermelon and raspberries are very popular in fruit teas but Seventh Heaven uses melon and other tropical fruits to give it an exotic flavour like no other. This tea is low on calories and prevents food cravings. It helps relieve digestive discomfort, reduces fever and nausea and relieves stress too. Some people say it is like a dessert in a cup, minus the calories but loaded with health benefits. Many of the fruits are also rich in vitamins that are good for the hair and the skin as well.

The health benefits of these teas can range from being anti-depressants due to the calming effect they have on the body. These fruit blends can reduce your blood pressure, prevent kidney diseases and give the immune system a boost.

Seventh Heaven tea must be prepared carefully. Heat water in kettle for a few minutes. It should not reach boiling point. Make sure you take it off the stove when it is around 85 to 90 degrees centigrade. Put the Seventh Heaven teabag in a cup and pour the hot water into it. Let it steep for three to four minutes till the colour is rich and dark.

Enjoy it at all times of the day, as it can pep you up and make you feel good all day.

So, the next time the clouds gather and you feel your spirits sinking and your cognitive functions getting weary, enjoy a cup of Seventh Heaven Tea. This beverage is like pure ambrosia for the soul; it can rejuvenate and refresh your mind and body for an entire season and through winter too.
