From Dammann Frères

This blend of black teas flavored with licorice aroma offers a nice duality between sweetness and bitterness to deliver a smooth and savorous cup.

This smells just like black jujubes! Which I’ve always loved! I can’t eat them anymore, but perhaps this tea can be the perfect replacement?

Wow! This one is so interesting, in a good way. A sweetness hits you right at the start of the sip, then gives way to liquorice. The sweetness isn’t cloying at all. The liquorice almost ‘bites’ at the tongue. It is so reminiscent of liquorice and I love it!

I haven’t had this one in a while, I’ll have to remember to steep up a pot of it later.

Courtney

I hope you enjoy it! :)

Cameron B.

I’m glad you like it! I remember it having a nice black licorice flavor.

Courtney

Me too! I’ve always just scrolled past it, so I’m happy Jessi asked to split because I may have missed out on a delicious tea!

This tea was unexpectedly delicious. I like licorice but was not sure about a licorice tea. Still we picked up a sample at the Dammann freres store and had to come back to get 100gr. before catching our plane the following week. It’s light and straight forward licorice, but it makes for a delicious afternoon tea. More desert like than the Licorice infusion by Yogi Tea.

So this one just made its way into the “5 oldest teas” box that sits on my tea nook counter. It’s from October of 2018, purchased when I was in Nîmes, France for work, and I don’t think I’ve steeped it up since the first time I tried it. Not sure why that is, some teas just get forgotten about in my (oversized) cupboard heh heh…

But wow, I just had to write a note and say, I can’t believe how much liquorice flavor is still here! As soon as I opened the tin, I was surrounded by the sweet scent of Good & Plenty candies. I’ve actually tossed a couple of old Dammann teas recently because there was no flavoring left, so I was quite surprised by this one.

Anyway, it’s a sweet-tasting tea with a classic black liquorice candy flavor. The base is extremely mellow and smooth, just a vehicle for the flavoring really. A very niche tea, but I’m enjoying it as a sort of afternoon dessert today. :)

A few months ago, this one went into the “compostdown” for me in a bit of a lunacy clear out XD.

Cameron B.

Ha ha, well hopefully it wasn’t your favorite!

Courtney

Nope! I don’t think of it wishfully — at least not since I tossed it. Perhaps that day will come, but one can always re-order haha!

A very pleasant, light liquorice tea. It’s recommended by Dammann Frères that it be allowed to steep for 6 minutes – the resulting liquor is still fairly light and the tannins remain mild. The black liquorice is present but not overbearing. A pleasant after dinner tea.

Flavors: Licorice

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 6 min, 15 sec 3 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML
