1 pouch of loose in 450 mL water, bare, steeped 5 minutes.
I got a gift box of Forte single steep pouches a while ago, and this one was my favourite. That said, it can get bitter once you hit 5 minutes; it was more pleasant at 4.
A competent and pleasant Assam blend with, to my surprise, what looked like some CTC mixed in with very small leaves. Some malt, lots of body, but again, a tendency to bitterness at the end. Not the best Assam ever, but far from the worst.
My IE won’t let me access the slider bars, so I have to type out ratings. I give this one a 75.
