Advent Calendar – Day 18

I was so scared of this one when I opened it this morning. It was very perfumey and although I loved the scent, I was a bit nervous about drinking it. Between the Vert Chai and this one, it was all about being adventurous this morning!!

But again, I was worried for nothing. I liked this one even more than the Vert Chai.

I can definitely taste the light ginger, but the orange blossom took the center stage for me and the rose, while definitely there, did not make me feel queazy as I expected. To the contrary, it was a beautiful addition to the mix! Who knew I didn’t hate rose? Mind you, I’m not sure I would like it if it was the main attraction, but I’m thrilled to have expanded my horizons!

I think the orange blossom is what worked so well for me. It’s a flavor I love in my crepes, truffles or even claffouti, and combined with ginger, rose and a tiny bit of stevia, it felt both as familiar and as exotic as a Moroccan dessert I might taste in Paris. It made me want a couscous for dinner in fact!

A fun “once in a while” treat!

Day 18 of the Dammann Freres Advent Calendar

this one was okay. I was hoping for more ginger and spices, but I got a big shot of floral perfume. For someone who enjoys rose tea I think this tea would have been a good choice. It is not at all astringent or bitter. The rose flavor really comes out as the cup cools. So, not may favorite. But this is another tea that I would never have =tried on my own, so it was a great chance to stretch my tea horizons.
