This smells delicious, like juicy oranges, and it came out of Dammann Freres’ advent calendar.

I wasn’t a huge fan of it plain, so I added sweetener almost immediately. Then it becomes a creamy orange with a hint of cherry. I get few spices, but again that’s likely from my oversteeping issues of late.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Day 18!

Darn you steepster!! Making it super difficult to find a tea. Most people would give up after it wouldn’t come up in the find a tea search box. The rest would give up after manually searching through all of Dammann’s teas on the site. But no… I am a tea addict (and proud to say it). I will attempt to add the tea, only to find out there is already a tea that exists by the same name that doesn’t come up anywhere else on the site. Whew!

Anyway, this tea is super delish. It quite reminds me of flocon d’epices. I think Dammann must have shares in hubba bubba gum because that is what all of their teas taste like for me. I get minimal rooibos taste. I definitely taste the black cherry and red fruits. I am not getting much ginger bread but the liquor is quite thick. I am getting a bit of clove but it is not too spicey and pleasantly sweet.

sounds interesting!

Haha. I do all of those things too! I added this last night so probably about the same time you were looking for it – for some reason it takes a bit for the tea to show up when you do a search for it, though…

Advent calendar day 18.

Rooibos. We meet again.

I have learned that I’m just not much of a fan of herbals. I’ll try them, sure, but I don’t go out of my way to buy them anymore. They just taste off to me now.

This is no exception. The dry leaf smells mostly of orange and clove but it also doesn’t definitively smell of tea. It has a medicinal smell that gets stronger when brewed (I’m thinking this may be due to the cherry.)

The taste (served with no additives) is okay – mostly orange. The mouthfeel is fine. I just really don’t like that medicinal note – I have to breathe through my mouth in order to take a sip.

Yeah, not wowed, but then I didn’t expect to be, really.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

good morning! merry christmas!
I have tried SO MANY TEAS over the past few days and haven’t made notes for any, booooo :(
So even though I don’t like posting from my phone I’m gonna try to do it more often.

Yesterday’s movies include 2 documentaries, ‘The Woodmans’ and ‘Cutie and The Boxer’. Both about artists. Both very good.
Today I’m gonna start with ‘56 up’. It’s a series where the filmmaker interviews the same group of British children every 7 years. When I worked at a video store in Philadelphia I got hooked.

I drank this tea last night as I watched an episode of ‘my cat from hell’ at 1am. I had just learned about it at dinner and I was curious. What can I say :)

7 Up (and all of the following years) is excellent!

Shmiracles

yesterday i got a friend newly hooked on the UP series too. and then today she got another person hooked! spreading the word…
it’s easy to recommend them when they are all on netflix. :)

Dammann Frères Advent Day 16 (16-February 2021)

I forgot about this tea until it was pretty cold, but it’s still tasty! I’m getting mostly orange here and I quite enjoy orange and rooibos. I’ve nothing to complain about here!

Advent 16.

Smells and tastes of bubblegum and orange-cherry-hint of clove-cola. The commonality between the 3 DF teas I’ve had so far that have a cola/bubblegum note is that they all have gingerbread flavoring (the other 2 being Flocons d’Épices and Carcadet de Noël).

The rooibos is a bit woody-sweet and drying, but overall the wateriness of the body doesn’t allow for all the flavors to really shine. Boring, yes, but good enough.

Flavors: Cherry, Clove, Drying, Orange, Spices, Wood

I know, bubblegum right?! So weird but still good.

Made this and then forgot about it while I did schoolwork. So its cold and also just not a favorite. It’s a Christmas tea so it has a similar profile to Merry Cookie. However, the rooibos base comes through a touch medicinal and then the orange is very sweet making this like an odd and artificial orange candy drink.

Advent day 17! I was scared when I saw a rooibos today, but it’s actually one of my favorite teas in the DF advent so far! The rooibos flavor isn’t too prominent, and there are some really nice gingerbread and orange notes that were really enjoyable.

2020 Advent Calendar – Day 16 This is a rooibos that wins me over every time and makes me forget that I don’t like rooibos very much. The orange comes through first and foremost, and then the Christmas spices, and last a little bit of rooibos.

I don’t know if it’s because the orange dominates the rooibos and forces it to take a supporting role or if by adding sweetener, I mellow the rooibos a bit, but I like this one. I am in the minority here, because both my husband and daughter handed me theirs gladly. lol. It’s actually perfect since I couldn’t possibly drink 100g by myself. So these little samples will do nicely.

Flavors: Orange, Spices
