drank Miss Dammann by Dammann Freres
59 tasting notes

2020 Advent Calendar – Day 5. After Ginger Magic, it was lovely to go back to a ginger tea that’s refreshing and delightful! I need to remember to drink this one in the summer. It’s my husband’s favorite so he hides it in his tea drawer so I forget about it during the year :p I might never be a ginger tea person but I really like the combination of lemon ginger and passion fruit. It’s probably the passion fruit that changes the game for me. This tea is fresh and delicate, ad lightly fruity. It’s a delicious cup of tea. I added a squeeze of lemon juice because it’s supposed to helps preserve catechins in green tea, it works beautifully in this tea. Miss Dammann was very much a win.

Flavors: Citrusy, Floral, Fruity, Ginger, Lemon, Passion Fruit

Bio

I started drinking tea 5 years ago when a friend introduced me to flavored black teas. Since then, I have developed a bit of a tea addiction. I never want to be without the teas I love, but I’m perpetually compelled to try new ones… I’ve never been a collector of anything, but it seems I do have a tea problem. Still, I work as a web designer and digital marketing specialist so I always have a tea cup by my side to keep me happy as I stare at my screen all day.

Being French and living in the US, I started with French tea companies like Mariage Freres, Dammann Freres, Kusmi, Nina’s and TheOdor (it has been a way for me to stay connected to my roots), but I’d love to find tea companies I love as much on this side of the Atlantic.

I love dessert teas. All kinds of dessert teas. Although most of my favorites are black teas, I love a few green teas, oolongs, green rooibos (I dislike regular rooibos) and I’m always searching for an infusion I can drink at night. So far, I have found very few fruit teas or herbal teas I love, but I’m still looking.

In terms of flavors, I adore almond, pistachio, biscuit, nutty types, as well as caramel, cream, cake, vanilla, toffee, chocolate, and cookies. For me, it’s all about drinking my dessert!!! I also like fruity teas like peach, melon, mango, raspberry, strawberry, figs, and even grapefruit flavored teas. I like it all except for lemon. I also love black licorice candy so licorice tea works for me.

I am discovering more floral teas and testing the waters there, but I don’t care for earl greys or chai. I have not expanded into unflavored teas yet but maybe one day.

For full disclosure I usually add a little bit of stevia to my teas.
