drank Pu-Erh Gourmand by Dammann Freres
1848 tasting notes

Years ago on one of my very first swaps, someone sent me Coquelicot Gourmand from Dammann Freres. I was obsessed with it. I talked about it all the time. I talked about it so much that my eldest daughter wrote down the name and then ordered it for me as a gift.

Then I started reading tasting notes on this tea not long ago and I started drooling. When daughter asked what I wanted for my birthday, I sent her a link for this. She got not only this but also Easter Tea.

We drank this together this afternoon as we are cell rating my birthday with the family today. My daughter sniffed it and said, “Wow! Is that…bread?” I told her it is what they refer to as biscuit flavor, something that once wouldn’t have appealed to me until I tasted it in Coquelicot. I smelled the sweet almond and it reminded me of cherries. But the flavoring doesn’t overwhelm or conceal the puerh, and I am glad because I really like puerh. Daughter liked this one, too. Her husband drank it but said it was a little horsey for him, which surprised me because he rather liked the unflavored puerh we had a couple of weeks ago.

The tasting notes were all true. This is a delicious tea.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
