We had fire alarm test at noon today at work. As every Wednesday. Awful sound.
But that means I can brew this tea! I have received it from my brother, who received it from his colleague. And I received it because of tea bag, not because of tea.

But decided to brew it anyway and the speed of steeping scared me a bit. Not a bit. Actually a lot. And suggested 3-5 minutes steeping time was crazy long. Or I have thought so. I sadly had to solve something with my co-worker and I forgot about time. But… it was about 4 minutes.

Hey it was strong. A really strong black tea. I was afraid of super bitter cup, with no flavour and whatsoever bad.

First steeps were bitter. But it was really hot, so there weren’t much noticeable notes. As it cooled down it went into more complex flavours. The bitterness was there all the time, but some maltiness was there. And in the end of sip there were earthy, like weak pu-erh notes.

I would like to re-try with shorter steeping time, but sadly, it was only one tea bag I had.

I have a mental image of everyone running from your building in a panic, but there you are with your feet up, eyes closed, smelling the tea steam! :)

gmathis: Do you know what’s worst? Nobody cares even a real alarm starts. We had a few false alarms and it was explained later (5 minutes or so). But nobody running away! And yes, we work with highly flammable materials! After that there was email sent it was really dangerous and from now there will be no evacuation command said in the intercom. Somebody saw it from customers and wasn’t happy at all.

We should probably take our drills a little more seriously where I work, too!

When our fire drills became too frequent, they were ignored. I suppose that is human nature.

How i got it: Bought it

Experience: I went with the looks and, honestly, expected less of this tea due to its humble packaging, but ended with a fairly good cup. Mildly intense aroma, mainly composed of Ceylon and a bit of Assam notes too. In one moment, I happen to sense some spiced notes, like the ones from a Chinese tea, but just for a second. Its taste is intense and lasting, simple and lacking great nuances. I could describe its flavor as a balanced mix of Ceylon and Assam, holding some likeness to a Breakfast blend. It reminded me of Basilur’s Oriental Delight, too. Malty and caramel-like notes begin the sip, to later give space to earthy (like a Kenyan tea) and mildly bitter ones, ending with muscatel. A bit of astringency is present too. A better tea than I expected!

Would i buy it again?: Have some possibilities for a change of pace in the evening cup.

Extremely bitter and flat-tasting. I was given this tea bag as a part of “student welfare week” at my school so I’m not sure how fresh it is. It smelled fruity in the bag even though it tastes like a breakfast tea. I’m guessing that this may not be a representative of the actual flavour and I will withhold my rating.
