drank Violette by Dammann Freres
293 tasting notes

Sorry wasn’t able to find out a picture of thé Violette !
It isn’t sold on Dammann’s online website.

I bought it directly at the shop place des Vosges, so I’ll need to take my own pic of it .

It is a really pleasant tea.
First the scent of violet is fantastic, the liquor color is deep and we get immediately the violet note.

I had it in the morning , half of the cup plain, the other half with with black crystal sugar + a splash of milk.

I loved both methods.

This is nice but not on my Dammann top list.

Bio

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
