drank Bali by Dammann Frères
2791 tasting notes

This is a sample that came with a gift I received. Unfortunately I have allowed several DF samples to get a bit of age on them, so they are not as fresh as what most of you would be tasting.

When I drink samples like this, I am usually joined by my youngest daughter. To stretch the tea so that we can both have a small cup, we make it in a kamjove and resteep immediately, combining the two steeps. Usually we still get good flavor.

This time we did get a good tasting tea, but I feel that this one would have been really truly tasty full strength. The grapefruit was the predominant flavor I picked up, and it was so good that I wished it was even stronger. It didn’t seem overly floral but then I don’t mind floral tea as long as it is natural tasting rather than perfume-y or blatantly synthetic.

Overall, a good tea that I would definitely drink again and would be a great choice if I wanted something tropical.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
