Not CTC as claimed. Below is snippet of Amazon review.
(If Tea powder is all you're looking for, then may be ok.)

Rubbish

....
It is a loose leaf CTC (crush, tear, curl) processed tea. This should create tightly curled little "balls" of leaves that expand with hot water. What came in the package was, basically, tea dust (see photos).
The tea didn't have any flavour. It's just basically coloured hot water when brewed.
Don't waste your money. I wish I hadn't.

It is CTC Tea, like Red Label and Wagh Bakri Tea - its the kind used in India to make Masala Chai from scratch. Good Strong Morning Tea.

Looks like a good company as i believe its coming directly from their farm.

I am unfamiliar with the tea production process, but some good flavored teas I've ordered have that kind of appearance.

They aren't the best like some of the dried whole-leaf teas, but they can be quite good. If this is what it says it is (worth the price, IMHO, to find out), then I may definitely order more down the road even for the regular price.

And the ladies look genuine too. No model in a skimpy dress, these ladies are sheroes.

Anyone tried this before? I remember looking into one before and finding a low Fakespot grade (D or F, iirc). It's a B now.

Context: Joined October 2017, 1 of 2 total posts provides information not otherwise available on where product is sourced.

I don't like Fakespot and it's much easier to just look at the seller profile and provide some facts that people can interpret for themselves using their own judgment. This particular company received a 8 of their 348 reviews in the last 30 days. Those 8 reviews dropped their rating between 1 and 2 percent which is fairly significant.

Google "Indian grocery store near me" and pick up from many brands available in store. Taj Mahal, Red Label, Society are big popular brands... Wagh Bhakri is good too... you will get much better deals than this

Another tip... pick up Spices too... much cheaper as well

+100, and I'd add - way safer. 8oz for $5 is already not cheap and with fakespot D see no sense to try
