drank Atomic Lemon by Dammann Freres
2031 tasting notes

Dammann advent calendar, day 7. Dammann needs to work on their definition of tisane. I almost drank this last night, late in the evening when I drink caffeine free things, but thankfully I looked at the ingredients. Although I will grant that maté is technically a tisane, sencha green tea most definitely disqualifies this blend! Also I agree that there does appear to be a hint of hibiscus in this although there is no hibiscus in the ingredients.

Steeped it smells very lemony and gingery. I probably should have let this one steep longer, but I was worried about the green tea at 5 minutes. I guess it’s minimally present. The brew is a little weak but the flavor is pretty good. Lemony, a bit of heat from the ginger, and a light sweetness from some ingredient, but I don’t know what. This probably would be amazing iced!

I know, I drank this tea last night without looking at the ingredients because it said tisane on the packet. I was so mad last night, I couldn’t sleep and didn’t know why until I looked up this tea on steepster and noticed the opposite of sleep inducing ingredients.

Aw man, that sucks! I guess that’s what makes the lemon “Atomic”

Lala

Ha ha. Agreed!

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.
89-86: 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
85-80: 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.
