From Dobra Cajovna

On southern slopes of mighty Himalayas, just “over the hill” from Darjeeling diligent Nepalese plantators managed to bring a high-grown black tea to the tea world. Brown-green regular leaves with a high content of silver tips with floral aroma with full flavour, yet subtly astringent.

April 2022 Sipdown Challenge – A woody tea

Olive green leaf is the majority here and it tastes so much more like a Darjeeling than a fully oxidized, cocoa-ish Nepali black tea. This tea lights me up in all the right ways. It is very easy to drink with its lemon-oak-dry grassy character and some light, fluffy date sweetness like oxidized white teas. It is a bright tea with enough astringency to make it interesting but not dry out the mouth. Very mineral, quartzlike and bright clean copper. Mouthwatering, tingly salted citrus rind feeling. Nuances of sunchokes, malt, muscatel, eggshell, dates, geranium, pungent dried herbs, spearmint, dry forest floor duff. It feels in a way like California, like summer.

Thank you, Martin :)

TeaTiff TTB #12

This reminds me of a Darjeeling, which I know is supposed to be the “fine wine” of black tea, but which I personally don’t love. The flavor is light and floral with a lingering woody note. I find it slightly drying on the tongue. This one’s definitely not for me, but hopefully someone else will enjoy it!

Shh… I bought this tea back in February and now we are close to July?

It flies and I have almost sipped down this tea.

And I just took two teaspoons, strained and steeped… while watching TV news about the tornado here, so I have no idea for how long. It can be around 4 minutes. Almost boiling water.

This note should be about the tea right? Can’t focus on that much, as my friend’s house lost the roof covering. But they are one of the luckier families there.
Light, almost lemony, with woody notes. Some floral backbone. Hints of astringency, I guess it has mellowed a bit during those 4 months. Still amazing though.

I just read several articles on this and saw photos and video. So much destruction!

We aren’t used to have tornados here. And moreover it just directly hit those villages and small cities. The path of tornado is 26 km (16 mi) long and 500 metres (0.31 mi) wide. The meteorologist said he never saw anything like this. It was F3 tornado at least, possibly even F4.

Been there, done that. It is terrifying, and for those who lose their homes, the grief and shock is overwhelming.

Martin Bednář

I have heard about your experience with tornado gmathis. I can imagine it is terrible experience. But you, at least, are somehow moreless prepared. You know that recording it isn’t the best thing to do.
