I am continuing tasting my new Dammann Frères teas.

I have been very curious about this one since a long time, mainly because of the mix of provencal flowers and a typical fruit from mediteranean areas : fig.
I am a sucker too for teas containing honey and this is the case of this one.

The dry leaves smell honey and fig mainly and are really beautiful with the blue flowers (cornflower mainly and a little lavender) and yellow flowers (sunflower)

I am not disapointed at all : the flavours come so lovely on the very smooth and mellow tea base : honey for sure and fig on the top, strawberry comes on a supportive but really present role.

I was a little afraid to find an heavy lavender essential oil taste but it isn’t the case, the lavender taste is quite absent, I suspect DF only added some flowers to the blend and that’s it.It is perfect to me but if you are looking for a lavender tea, you may be a little disapointed.

Cooling, it becomes even sweeter and smoothier.

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 ?!?!?
