Chifir (Russian: чифи́рь, romanized: čifir', also spelled чифи́р) is an extraordinarily potent tea, traditionally brewed in Soviet and post-Soviet detention facilities, including gulags and prisons. It is renowned for its intense strength, significantly surpassing that of regular tea. Due to its high concentration of caffeine, Chifir is sometimes described as having mild narcotic effects, leading to its reputation for causing dependency among those who consume it regularly.
