drank Tisane de Noël by Dammann Frères

2021 sipdown no. 4

This was a sample sent in our DF order.

There a whole cardamom pods here and the tea overall is very Christmas-spicy. Even as a tisane, it’s very “full” feeling. The red peppercorns are a nice touch to add spiciness and heat. As I continued drinking this one, I started to get a queasy stomach. I looked over the ingredients, but can’t figure out what may have caused it.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 14 OZ / 414 ML

Bio

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug. I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted/green and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens (mango or pineapple, yum!).

Likes:
Raspberry, strawberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, blackcurrant, redcurrant, fig, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, jasmine, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
