a) CTC: Take a tea­spoon (tsp) of tea and put it in a glass. Pour hot wa­ter. Good tea will take three min­utes to give colour; the bad takes 30 sec­onds. b) Leaf tea: Take a tsp of tea and put it in a glass. Pour hot wa­ter and let it steep for three min­utes. The in­fe­rior tea will re­veal leaves, stalks and dust, while the other will show a uni­form hue. c) Take an air­tight con­tainer and put in the tea. Shut the lid tightly. Open af­ter 24 hours. A musty odour will emerge if the tea is in­fe­rior. Good tea will give off fra­grance.
