A sample of 7 grams I received from ashmanra. Thank you!
Yesterday I was playing in my thoughts all the day with my travel to US. When I decided to go sleep, I was sad it won’t happen anytime soon because it goes quite pricey. I would love to see you all in real life; but studies first and then I don’t know. We want to visit Balcans with my friends; but who knows how situation will look like. I went so obsessed with it, I thouht even for a moment it will be possible somehow soon (flight tickets to US are quite cheap nowdays, which makes sense as, who the hell would fly there, nowdays).

The tea I prepared is though, dismal. For some reason I thought it will be some high end black tea (no hurt feelings, ashmanra!), it even looked so nice! But the tea is, ehm, quite basic. The brewed tea after four minutes steeps is quite astringent, way too malty and very drying! I don’t think I have overbrewed it (suggested was 3-5 minutes), or overleafed, but… It just was so strong and quite one-dimensional. LuckyMe said that it reminds Lipton and I have to agree. It is bit like coated with some tea essence making it strong and malty, but that’s all.

Flavors: Drying, Earth, Malt

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 4 g 10 OZ / 300 ML

I have no hurt feelings over your impressions of this tea! I also tried it (I had two sample packs) and I did not like it at all, so now I know it wasn’t just me.

Yeah, this is one of my least favorite black teas from Teavivre too. Not sure why!

Keep envisioning your trip and you’ll make it happen eventually. As for flying, you wouldn’t catch me on a plane going anywhere right now.

I think we all were thinking it is not a good tea. I was even trying to find other vendors, but only few are having it. Probably it don’t suit our western tastes. Who knows?

derk: true :). I am impatient person though. Especially when it comes to adventures. Hah!

I’m with derk! Keep dreaming of visiting the U.S. While it is neither safe nor practical right now, the future teams with limitless possibilities! : )
