drank 7 Parfums by Dammann Freres
293 tasting notes

Thanks to Dammann, I know by now what a pitanga is, as I had to search for that :)
What an ingredient list…I was expecting something more parfumed regarding that point but it wasn’t so perfumed.

The dry leaf scent is really lovely, a mix of flower scent and citrus to me.

Same DF base, I won’t speak again about their unique base (which is good).Pourquoi changer une équipe qui gagne ? hummm to get more personnality and tea exploration pershaps ?

Liquor : I was expexting something more perfumed as well but it is really nice : I get the cherry blossom for sure (the famous pitanga !), fig, citrus.
The flavours are recognizable, this is really a nice surprise , I was daring having a kind of global flavour without subtility and it’s not the case.
More complicated to me : get the flowery notes separately _I don’t manage to, sorry.

It was my first cup of the morning but I strongly recommend to have it in the afternoon.It’s a very delicate and quite complex tea.

I don’t think I’ll repurchase it but I am happy to have 50g to enjoy.

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 ?!?!?
