Day 21 of the Dammann Freres advent calendar. An herbal, yay! I’m getting plenty of sweet, juicy, tart hibiscus and berry, but not any of the titular mint. Which is fine, it’s still tasty. And it’s good hot and cold. I added seltzer to the last bit of it and it made for a nice tea soda, so bonus points there.

Dammann Frères Advent Calendar 2022 – Day 21

Ok, I like this one. The black currant is jelly-worthy and the peppermint near-creamy. It should also be said that I really like both of these ingredients, even on their own; together, I think they make for an interesting sweet chutney thing – or a possible twist on a mojito. The hibiscus and rosehips are doing their thing too, but I’ve never had a problem with either of these flowers. I thankfully can’t pick out the apple today, so all is good.

Dammann Frères Advent Calendar 2022 – Day 21

I liked the sound of this one, until I saw it’s a fruit tisane with black currant and mint flavors. I was thinking more of an herbal blend, not being a huge fan of hibiscus, but here we go!

It’s fine I guess. I do get the blackcurrant for sure, the mint is a bit more subtle. But mostly, I taste the generic base of apple, hibiscus, and rosehips. It’s a bit too tart, a bit more balance would be nice. But also I just don’t think the syrupy blackcurrant and cooling mint really mesh very well with the fruity base?

Not my favorite.
