Day 2 of Dammann Freres advent calendar.

This tea is all cherry bubbilicious with hints of juicy fruit.

The smell of the dry tea is like the gum mixture as stated above. There is a sweet, citrus, but floral smell to the tea. The brewed tea is light and smooth. No astringency. I still get the cherry and juicy fruit flavours. I am getting sweet orange. I do not get much of the cinnamon or nutmeg. There is a sweet floral component to the tea. The tea is moderately thick and for some reason is reminding me of syrup (kind of like chokecherry syrup). Whatever is in this blend, it is pretty darn good.

I love French teas!

Jealous! I’ve missed so much Christmassy tea stuff by being away from Steepster for a couple months :(

I put a reminder in my phone for early next year to remind me to buy this earlier so I get it in time. I also missed out on the Lego advent calendars. Ha ha.

Kitenna – make yourself a deal…drink your teas down to a reasonable 500 before end of next year and you can buy one lol

Lala – I think I got one of the lego calendars!!! It’s waiting for me at my parents’ place.

Sil – Yeah, I haven’t been drinking tea at all lately, so I’m avoiding looking at any websites, even though I know I missed out on some Butiki teas, Verdant teas, the Amosa box… all of which I’m kind of heartbroken about… I need to get back to it!

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
