Dammann advent calendar, day 4. I’m glad this one was included because it always intrigued me, but I was unsure about the keemun base, different from Dammann’s usual (which I love). Sometimes I love 100% keemun bases, and sometimes I don’t at all. I remember why I often don’t when I smelled the sachet of this one, because that keemun smokiness is strong in this one.

After steeping, my fears are not allayed. Definite smoke, and yes some chocolatey, nutty sweetness on top. I think if I liked smoky keemuns, I would like this tea. But as it is right now, it’s definitely not for me. Well, it’s always good to have some teas to cross off the list, and I’m glad I finally got to try this one.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
