Bonus Tea Swap Sample Sipdown of the Day! (28)
This one comes courtesy of VariaTEA!
Man, every time I drink a Dammann Frères tea, I get grumpy because I would love to be ordering from them if they would just offer a 50g size. But I digress…
This is definitely a very woody-tasting tea. It’s likely from both the base tea and the vanilla, as I often find that bourbon vanilla has a strong wood note. I do also taste a nice creamy vanilla flavor, which I would like more of. There is a bit of a caramel-esque note as well, but it’s closer to burnt sugar than it is to buttery caramel sauce.
The vanilla note is nice, but it has a bit of a hard time standing up to the strong woody flavor here. It’s still a nice enough tea, but I would love more vanilla and caramel.
Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Sweet, Vanilla, Wood
