drank Caramel by American Tea Room
767 tasting notes

a fine enough caramel tea. simple.
not really a strong flavor at all. and not very sweet.
i bet it would benefit from some agave and milk.

Yay dammann!

I’m attending a potluck tonight and I’m bringing donuts and tea. I just spent a good hr organizing my tea and then deciding what to bring and packing it up.

I watched ‘please vote for me’ and ‘waiting for Armageddon’, two documentaries. And now I started ‘roman holiday’ but I think I’m gonna finish it later.

If I focus and stay determined, I will be able to reach 600 different teas tasted by the end of tomorrow. I think that’s a nice goal. Fun to try at least. :)

This tea is not really my thing. I’m not a green lover and not a fan of cinnamon and though the description doesn’t say cinnamon it’s the scent and flavor that I’m getting most. It overrides the ginger and orange for me. Too bad.

The beginning of Roman Holiday is real cute btw.
And Gregory Peck is a total hunk.


I actually walked Via Margutta today! (Where Gregory Peck lives in Roman Holiday.)

my sister got this in a mixed tea christmas gift box set.
and it was pretty good!

i watched The Hunger Games tonight.
and knitted a scarf 3 times.


hee hee hee.


Yay – Hunger Games! :O
I am currently un-knitting my scarf but happily it’s only 3 rows.


well, it wasn’t a FULL scarf, but it was a good one and a half feet. i kinda wanna start over a 4th time, but the INSANITY MUST STOP! haha!!
i have issues.


Nice, I still haven’t watched the Hunger Games yet. Hope you enjoyed. :)


Awww. That’s a lot of frogging!

another sample from the dammann advent calendar.

i’m watching Leviathan now. it’s an experimental film so it’s not for everyone.
it is an unedited and raw and crystalized visual window into time spent of an industrial fishing boat in the middle of the ocean.
but it is making me think about so many things i never would think of otherwise! so good!
often times the ocean sounds just like contemporary orchestral music. and the life of everything just keeps pushing on.

i took this from wikipedia but i think it says a lot about the film in a good way
…the film “plunges us into the sights and sounds of this visceral business”, … raw images and natural sounds. Edited together into a non-linear and virtually wordless whole, it creates a briny immersive effect that is almost hallucinatory." … the film “conveys the brutal toll that the enterprise takes on the workers and on the ocean, …the sea threatens to exact its revenge on humanity. … avoids exposition and context, unfolds almost entirely in the dark and often verges on hallucinatory abstraction. Where most documentaries prize clarity, this one attests to the power of estrangement.”

estrangement! that’s why i’m having such an experience. it’s definitely my style.
at home floating and alone. or also like Frances Ha said “I like things that look like mistakes”.


Yes, like listening to a live orchestra or going to the opera and just letting your mind drift all over the place. Plus the ocean, which is as awesome as you can get.


the ocean is a fucking serious beautiful monster.

unfortunately, now i have a lot of ‘tea homework’ because i’ve been drinking tons of new teas but haven’t been properly logging many of them.

i bought a box of this from the health food store.
if you ask me, no other herbal tea can compare to the relaxing qualities of tulsi.
i hope i always have a box of this in my cupboard. always.

a surprise holiday gift from Sil !
i was so pleased to get this extremely thoughtful mail that i saved the packet of tea and carried it around in my purse for over a week. hah. like a little xmas baby.

it was yummy. after brewing i announced to the room that it is the color of pee. which really just add to it’s charm. i really like Kitenna’s description of it tasting like sweet pretzels. THIS is the exact kind of thing i should go for when i’m looking for herbal options from now on.
rooibos is just kinda depressing at this point.
but this, this tea is delicious comfort in a cup.

Sil you are epic.


so glad you enjoyed it. That small package has been waiting for me to get around to sending it to you haha last one i had..put your name on it so i wouldn’t drink it or send it away…

okay! this is one of my top picks from the noel teas.
but duh chocolate and apricot of course it is.

i’m watching documentaries still.
yesterday i finished “56 up” and today i’m watching “into the Abyss”. i could easily watch all of Werner Herzog’s documentaries multiple times. i plan to watch all the ones available on netflix before the new year starts hah.

and what-the-hell how did i even end up crocheting and knitting again? i knew the super basics a long time ago, and this week i taught myself granny squares and the purl stitch and i’m getting used to doing them smoother.
oh wait
i know how that happened
it’s all your fault you amazing jerks.
i’m having fun!


at least i think i’m having fun? i’m also sorta a perfectionist which kinda can make me anxious, so, yup i’ve made an almost-full-scarf and unraveled it all already two times to re-start. hah. it’s my style of things and stuff. but yes i’m having fun.


i should say i’m perfectionisty, but also indecisive. which leads to a long trail of unfinished things and countless re-dos. (huh. maybe i WILL try to finish that dance degree after all.)


sorry sister, i drank BOTH tea bags of this one mwahaha
i stole it from the sample box and i’m not sharing, just this once.

from the advent calendar pile!
it’s quite a lovely pile.
i really like this one more than i thought i would have. citrus and airy. kinda like a light and breezy early grey ya know. these dammann teas are a joy to try.

do you guys have a milk frother?
has anyone tried that little david’s tea one?
is there one you have seen and recommend?

Josie Jade

I have the Aerolatte little stick frother and love it! I looked at ones at World Market, but this one seemed a bit more sturdy. I got it at Bed Bath and Beyond with a 20% off coupon a little over a year ago and I’m happy with it!


hey thanks for the feedback! that looks like a good one :) and the reviews on amazon are all pretty positive.


I have never bought one but I like the idea of Bed Bath and Beyond. I heard Ikea’s is ok too, but don’t quote me on it.

dammann advent calendar day 24!! Yay!
I’m so glad I got this calendar. I’m gonna go online and see if they have some for sale or something. It’s just great to have all these delicious teas individually wrapped and available.
Happy Mid-Winter celebration everybody!


Only place you can get it with reasonable shipping to North America is at Vendome Cadeau, and they do have this tea as I ordered it in a package set. I’d recommend grabbing the bags however, as (a) they’re inexpensive, and (b) MUCH more inexpensive than the gorgeous, albeit highly priced sets/tins.
