Expected a bit more punch and creativity but got traded for really mild taste and slumber. Needs more leaves to achieve taste than most but price point makes it a good deal. Unlike others, doesn’t need to be boiled from cold at ultra light heat for 45 mins. Below average mirror lined thermos, made in India, from IKEA is sufficient to brew properly. Kills food cravings, sends to bed if accompanied with two cans of Irish stout beer. Wonder if mixing it with young raw puerh would give it a bit of tanginess and/ or caffeine kick. Although proximity to Vietnam is mentioned as a source, a totally different experience from so called border version. Curious how Malaysian storage would factor in here. Definitely in its own category.
