It is mostly Dammann December up in my tasting notes, but I did actually have something different yesterday for breakfast.

I’m still trying to hold steady to my no more than 75 teas rule, which presents a problem as I have a huge Butiki order coming in, and a need for all the Dammann teas. So, cleanout time has been commenced. This is not a sipdown but I only have a cup or so left and wanted something holiday-y and rich so it fit the bill.

Served with milk, no sugar. 2 tsp. to a 10 oz. cup.

The milk always helps this get more of a pudding-y texture. It is quite fruity with some good bread notes, a hint of spice. The sips aren’t consistent, some more flavorful than others, but it did give me a cozy holiday cup to celebrate that I will be off work for 5! whole! days!

75 teas… i’ll be there someday..maybe. Goal for this year was to get to 150 and stay there…next year maybe i’ll aim for getting to 100. heh

TheTeaFairy

Sounds great! The first thing that comes to mind when I get days off coming is : think about all the teas you’re gonna have!!!
(Sil, you’re dreaming! Down to 100, really??? Lol!)

Sil

haha teafairy…hey i managed to get from 350+ down to 150…

TheTeaFairy

Sil, That’s a MAJOR accomplishment, don’t let me take it away from you :-)

Sil

haha not to worry tea fairy! I just think i’m finally figuring out what i like, what i love and what i’d just like to try and move on with in terms of tea. My worry now is that i’ll start collecting puerh and it’ll be 100 teas and 100 puerhs lol

JustJames

@TheTeaFairy and see, you’re far kinder than i am….. i’m gearing up as we speak to send her stuff and boost that number. i’m not as nice as you.

Sil: puerhs and the de loup? lol.

JustJames

AND MATCHA!!!

Sil

haha i’m not sure i ever need to buy matcha again at the rate i’m struggling to get through what’s in my cupboard. I DOOOOO really want to place an order with MF and theodor…but i have to wait until next week when i get paid to see what my bonus is. I’ve already decided if it’s over a certain amount, i’m doing it!

JustJames

A few of my favorite teas (in no particular order):

*Dessert flavored blacks
*Breakfast blends
*Virtually any black tea (but lapsang/keemun!)
*Dancong oolong
*Sencha
*Dragonwell

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
