drank Velours Nacré by Dammann Freres
85 tasting notes

1/30/14 Afternoon cup. 1tsp/6oz/212F/5min. Maybe this was over leafed? Very dark in the cup, with a scent of chocolate and marzipan. It doesn’t really taste of anything but bitter, though. Or it could just be me today.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

It was too hot. After a nice cool down the bitter has cleared up, and there’s a gentle black tea/marzipan flavor going on.

That seems to be true of a lot of Dammann Teas. You have to wait for them to cool down a little to get the full impact of their flavours.
