From Dammann Frères

Reminiscent wonderful breakfasts enjoyed in the United States, an infusion that combines body and a light tannic grip for this gourmet black tea bringing together in a round and warm cup, the subtly toasted gourmet notes of pancake with those fruity notes of banana slightly stewed.

Another acquisition from Paris.

This definitely benefits from a shorter steep time, as it starts to get bitter right around the 2 minute mark. Not quite pancake, but definitely banana and maple. But not gross, cloying maple that is so often found in maple flavoring. This is quite pleasant- more of a brown sugar, caramelized flavor. The banana flavor is quite mild.
This would probably be really nice with some sweetener and milk.

Day 6 of the Dammann Freres advent calendar. I’m not sure that this is “pancake,” necessarily, but it is delicious. I’m getting a lot of banana and maple over a malty black base. I suspect that Dammann uses the same base in a lot of their flavored black teas that I’ve had so far. It works well in this blend, though! Any folks with this calendar and a better sense of black teas, are they using the same base?

Dammann Frères Advent Calendar 2022 – Day 6

On the subtle side, but lovely accents of banana and maple to finish. Toasted grain, in the shade of buckwheat, is the predominate note for me. It makes for a malty sugar in the hue of dark amber. It’s more in porridge or pudding territory than pancake land, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

I was really excited to try this one but, of course, left it until the end of the night. So I’m sipping it half asleep. Oh well!

Dammann Frères Advent Calendar 2022 – Day 6

Ooh, one of the new teas I’ve been wanting to try! :D

It’s really good. I will say, it doesn’t reallllly remind me of pancakes? It’s more toasty than that, almost like a genmaicha or something. It does have some lovely buttery notes to it, and the banana comes in mostly at the end of the sip for me. It is a tad candylike, but it’s not full-on Runts banana. More like a creamy pudding banana, the kind from a box. There’s also some caramel going on, or maybe that’s the maple. I’m surprised I’m not getting a more definite maple note, as I remember some of their other teas being super spot-on for real maple syrup.

Oh, I see this has buckwheat flavoring, which explains the toasty notes! It’s scrumptious but reminds me more of a banana-caramel genmaicha on a black base than it does of pancakes. Either way it’s yummy though, and going on the to-buy list! :)

Also, I find it nice that Dammann seems to be embracing more modern flavors in their new teas lately, despite being a very traditional company. I hope they keep making fun new blends like this and Lassi Mango!

I’ve also noticed DF getting a lot more adventurous/modern with their flavours and ingredients. As a legacy brand, I can’t help but wonder if it’s an attempt to reach a younger customer base more open to deviating from the “traditional” mono flavoured black blends they built the brand on. Whatever the case, I dig it!

That could definitely be the reason, either way I’m happy about it ha ha. I guess I’m the target audience! :P

I got their advent maybe 10 years ago now and wasn’t impressed. Their flavors were so light and the teas so boring that I wrote off the company and haven’t had them since. May have to reconsider that stance if they are doing banana teas now!

Advent Day 6: OH MY GOODNESS! This blend is just right for me and my preferences. It’s cakey and toasty like the golden brown pancakes that are flipped just in time. It’s drizzled in a rich maple syrup and it has a light banana flavor that isn’t intense or artificial tasting. Could there have been a little more banana? Sure but I really loved this blend.

Hmmm…

I feel like the flavouring of this is too light, even by DF’s usual standards. I drank it and I couldn’t definitely taste something. Maybe a little bit nutty and a bit starchy with a hint of vanilla? However it was definitely imperceptibly banana to my palate.

I’ll try again, maybe with some neutral sweetener to attempt to lift the flavours a bit.

Dustin

That’s how I feel about most of DF’s teas. I strain to taste distinguishable flavors.
