I had this tea two times while I am this week in Prague at my friend’s flat (I just needed to unwind from my family a bit).

Not sure, if it’s Prague water or what; but this tea was only tannic, not complex at all and kind of flat. It was that “bagged black tea taste” if you know what I mean?

It wasn’t up to Basilur standards to me even. Was the baggie too old? I have no idea. Honestly kind of dismal, especially called “Gold”.

[Good to be here after a long recess! =) I been storing entries for months, so let’s go for those first 100 tasting notes, hehe]

How i got it: Bought it

Experience: Spiced and slightly wooden, mild-intensity aroma, and a bit stronger taste than what you could have guessed from the smell. Its notes depart a little from the typical caramel-like, Basilur-Ceylon-trademark ones to be more wooden and malty, although there appear fruity hints from time to time. Good definition, duration and richness. Spiced notes in the middle of the sip, and more bitter to its end, plus some astringency in the aftertaste. Maybe it doesn’t show the complexity that Basilur’s Special does, but a good tea, no doubts!

Would i buy it again?: I give it good probabilities.
