Preparation: Brewed western style in a ceramic infuser mug.
First steeping: 4 minutes at 210 degrees. Brisk malty flavor with suggestions of fresh-baked bread and a pleasant brisk aftertaste. As the cup cools the bread-like notes are more prominent.
This was my first experience with the Soula estate in India and I quite enjoyed this Assam.
Flavors: Astringent, Baked Bread, Malt
