Not worth it.
Chifir is a drink caused by production needs. We chifiri daily in the durka, because there was simply nothing to do, and chifir gave at least some kind of vigor on top of antipsychotics.
Feelings were nauseous. It is a light stimulant, that is, lightness in the body arises from the chifir, it is pleasant to move, talkativeness increases, and endurance increases. But all this is accompanied by nausea, the desire to go to the toilet in a big way and at the same time the inability to do it.
If there are any more noble psychostimulants, I would prefer them, and purely for the entertainment of idleness, cyclodol is much more interesting. But the chifir performed not so much a psychoactive-material function as a social one. People sit in a circle and watch the tea leaves fall. It looks like a fire, only without a guitar.
But if this circle of people imprisoned does not exist, then the chifir loses all meaning.
I tried this bullshit. The taste and color, of course. I can’t say that I didn’t like it very much, but I don’t really want to try again.
It tastes like a very strong black tea, it knots my mouth a little (it seemed to me so). There was a sensation in the stomach, as if a stone had been swallowed - some kind of point Heaviness (does this happen at all? Xs, just trying to somehow describe the sensations), a slight heartburn, and the most beautiful thing is constipation. It was not two days .. Well, you get the idea.
I tried it, turned it inside out. Almost everyone turns out of habit. In the army, they used it so as not to experience hunger. You really don't feel hungry for a long time, because the stomach curls up into a lump from such swill. It stimulates, shakes a little from this chifir, I don't want to sleep either. Well, I understand why this was necessary in military situations, when it was necessary to stifle appetite and drowsiness, in a cheap but barbaric way. But why drink chifir in civilian life, I don't really understand.
