The Difference Between Ctc And Orthodox Tea

Posted by Abhishek Dixit on May 31st, 2018

While Orthodox tea is a labor-intensive method, CTC tea is a capital-intensive process. Both varieties of processing have their own pros and cons. The end product of each method is very different from the other and people have their own preferences. CTC tea leaves include the use of heavy machinery for pulverizing the leaves, where the tea looks like pellets and tastes extremely homogenous. Orthodox tea on the other hand has much more character. The brew is hand-rolled to perfection by the people working in tea factories.  Orthodox tea as the name suggests, is processed in the age-old methods where the leaves are hand-plucked, processed, fermented, oxidized and then hand-rolled. It is a much more time taking the process and is fairly expensive.

The major difference between these two varieties of brews is the pricing. CTC tea is readily available in the market at dirt cheap prices. You can find so many varieties of shiny CTC tea packs placed meticulously on the racks of supermarkets. Orthodox teas, on the other hand, are hard to find, and you can either find them in authentic tea stores or on the Teafloor site. CTC tea is really popular in India because of its heavy demand and ease of access. Plus, it is much cheaper. Orthodox tea is expensive because it is painstakingly plucked, withered and processed to make sure that the properties of the tea remain intact.

Both CTC and orthodox teas are made from the same Camellia sinesis plant, but the orthodox variety has most of the antioxidants intact while CTC tea tends to lose them because it is processed by machines and therefore is really cheap. Having said that, this tea also has many different grades, so If you want to buy CTC tea online of the finest variety then, log on to the Teafloor website. Teafloor sells all different types of teas, including the CTC as well as orthodox variety, so you have the luxury to pick and choose between your favorite teas.

Why do Indians choose CTC tea over orthodox tea?

India is the second largest producer of tea and is home to some of the largest tea plantations, so using the orthodox method for processing the leaves becomes a very tedious and time-consuming process, which is unwelcome by many tea companies. S

Since most Indians are budget oriented, they do not like to spend a ton of cash on tea, and therefore prefer CTC tea because it is easy on the pocket. Since it is mass produced there is no dearth of this brew which is why it is loved by people across the nation, because of its easy accessibility.
