Advent 5.

Refreshing, exotic and spicy. Luscious, floral lime pierces through the woody, earthy ginger in a crisp, grassy base. In the second steep, the passionfruit really comes out. Instead of the high-pitched tang of the pulp, here it is fairly smooth. Usually I’m disappointed in passionfruit teas, but the execution of complementary flavors here allows it to shine. Overall, Miss Dammann reminds me somewhat of tom yum soup, something like Thai food aromatics.

I may have twitched with delight! :D

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
