Dammann Frères Advent 2021 – Day 13

Ok, I’m still not feeling great, so tea is not sparking joy right now – even a nice, bright blueberry on a green/white tea base (profile is in-between, despite DF’s label). It tastes like a combo of hay and soy beans/ something green and flat? And stuff. Sorry, tea.

Flavors: Beany, Berries, Blueberry, Citrusy, Floral, Hay, Umami, Vegetal

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 30 sec

Oh no! Sorry to hear that you are still suffering. May it pass quickly.

I was mostly good., but probably should’ve put off drinking the teas until my appetite fully returned. The Coconut Eggnog from 52teas was such a success yesterday despite it all that I had hoped.

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, maybe milky or eggnogy teas would be settling?

Evol Ving Ness

Or maybe plain things like toast or white rice for a day or two while you get your bearings.

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

My favourites are teas like Milk Oolong, Silver Needle,and Japanese Sencha/Gyokuro, or fruity and floral flavoured ones. However, I generally enjoy ALL the teas, including a good old cup of Earl Grey or Breakfast blend.

Less Preferred Flavours/Ingredients:

Subjective Rating System:
I don’t give a lot of low ratings out, since a) I tend to grab tea I know will appeal to me, and b) I don’t have a lot of strong dislikes.

90-100: Favourites. The Desert Island Teas.
80-89: Loved teas. Possibly staple-worthy.
70-79: Good teas, but I’m less likely to repurchase. Minor quibbles.
60-69: Ok teas. Likely a few preference and/or quality issues.
50-59: Cup of meh. Will do in a pinch.
11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea.
1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This tea is the embodiment of the primordial swamp, an unholy abomination. It’s very gross and I’m almost positive it doesn’t exist.
