Dammann Frères Advent 2021 – Day 7
Where have I been these past 3 years??? Why have I been so slow to come to my senses? This tea has been my husband and daughter’s absolute favorite tea for several years now and I left it to them. They raved about it and converted my sister-in-law and one of our “bonus kids” (we have two extra children we picked up over the years and love as our own). And still, I ignored it. I completely forgot that I loved it last year. I kept thinking of it as “their tea” and my husband even stashed it in his tea drawer. I kept thinking it was mostly a ginger tea.
What was I thinking? This morning Miss Dammann was perfection. The combination of passion fruit, lemon, and ginger was beautiful and delicious. Dammann hit it out of the park on this one and clearly, I had missed the memo on this one until now.
The passion fruit is what won me over and the ginger only made it better. Even in the winter, it was a happy, “sunny” tea. The acidity of the lemon was a perfect complement to the fruitiness of the passion fruit and made it feel fresh.
I’m late to the party on this tea but I’m glad I gave it another chance. Now I get what the fuss is all about :) In fact, I’m trying to brew it a second time because one cup was not enough!
