After being dissatisfied with the other chocolate teas I’ve had lately, I figured I would give this one a try. This is from my recent Dammann order, I added it in partially because of the cute tin, and partially because the combination of chocolate, almond, and biscuit sounded so tasty.

Hmm. It has a nice aroma with chocolate and marzipan, but it’s not really translating to the taste for me. Mostly I just taste a generic base tea and a little bit of amaretto flavor…

I wonder if I’m doing something wrong with these Dammann teas, as I had a similar blandness problem with another tea that I just bought. Perplexing.

Reserving judgment until I’ve tried this with some other steeping parameters… :(

Flavors: Almond, Marzipan

I love French teas, but I could not get into DF as much as I tried. Every cup in my advent was bland to my palate.

I don’t usually have this issue with Dammann’s teas, I am so nonplussed that it’s happened twice in a week… :/

2021 sipdown no. 64

Sad sipdown of this this evening. We went on a wee drive to get some fresh air and I had just steeped this when we decided on the drive, so I poured it in my ceramic travel mug and off we went.

This is definitely one I made a mistake not putting in my most recent order, but alas, it will go in the next. The biscuit and chocolate flavour is so perfectly balanced and light, yet apparent. Just delightful.

I can always send you some more too! I have a tin of this one.

I’ll have to remember for our next swap! Although my DF list to buy is growing, I don’t know when I’ll be ready to spend that amount haha!

I love DF but that 100g minimum size is a killer. :(

Sipdown (279)

I was feeling a bit off today and I think perhaps my body got used to a little bit of caffeine since I’ve been in quarantine and this is my first cup.

I literally grabbed this so I could get a quick up of caffeine and also a sipdown. Alas, I really don’t like it. I am mostly getting the black base tea which is not my favorite. There is a muddiness to it which I think is intended to be the chocolate but it’s not really doing it for me.

Advent day 22! I was dubious when I saw this one. Chocolate teas are very hit or miss, but this one absolutely knocks it out of the park. It has sweet, caramel notes and just a bit of chocolate. It’s not chalky or synthetic tasting like so many chocolate teas tend to be. Really tasty and smooth.

Sipdown (721)!

One of the free samples from my DF order – and honestly something I likely wouldn’t have bought for myself, but I’m glad it was included because I thought this was actually really incredible! DF blends have this amazing ability to really nail their intended flavours (more often than not) while still feeling more delicate/refined and allowing the base teas to come through really well – and this is an excellent example of that.

The chocolate note is there but it’s much less intense than you would get from a more North American style of chocolate tea. They’re silky and velvety while still having the richness of a really nice, high quality chocolate. The other main note here is the “praline” which is sweet and nutty, kind of like a praline or almond brittle? You experience the chocolate note first – very smooth and graceful, and then it transitions into more of this sweet nuttyness. It reminds me a bit of a very nice, fancy “praline truffle” kind of thing you might get from a box of very high end French chocolates. It’s so nice, but most importantly you also get the black tea at the same time!

I enjoyed this a lot – it’s like the more grown up version of DT’s Chocolate Covered Almond, and while both are good and have a purpose this is something I think I could find myself drinking more often. Thanks DF for including it!

Sounds lovely!
