759 Tasting Notes

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?

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.

I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while!
And now I have two samples yay. Even more important because at the moment I’m a little holiday drunk.
I drank the dammann Christmas Tea. Then a white russian imperial stout beer named after The Dude in The Big Lebowski. And now I’m drinking my Tony Stark tea as oddree and I watch Pacific Rim and I also read Avengers fic. (Multitasking!) And earlier we watched the original Total Recall.
It’s been a really busy day yo.
I’m having a great time!

day 14 of the advent calendar that APPARENTLY I’m drinking all 24 teas today.
the problem is that if you asked me, at the moment, I would tell you that all their xmas teas are cherry teas. they really like cherry teas. just think fruit cake I suppose.

I sang a fruit cake song in chorus when I was in 6th grade. i think i sang the part of cinnamon.

day 23 of the dammann advent calendar !!
I actually drank this days ago and I’ll probably have my second and last cup in a few moments this morning.
I ordered the advent calendar as a way to taste 20 or so new teas. And seriously having all these individually wrapped tea bags is so fun! Easy to bring them along to parties as back-up or enjoy while out and about.

This tea smells super cherry. Like candy cherry. But after it’s brewed the almond is very strong. I’ve been tasting a bunch of almond related teas lately. I’m totally into it.

good morning! merry christmas!
I have tried SO MANY TEAS over the past few days and haven’t made notes for any, booooo :(
So even though I don’t like posting from my phone I’m gonna try to do it more often.

Yesterday’s movies include 2 documentaries, ‘The Woodmans’ and ‘Cutie and The Boxer’. Both about artists. Both very good.
Today I’m gonna start with ‘56 up’. It’s a series where the filmmaker interviews the same group of British children every 7 years. When I worked at a video store in Philadelphia I got hooked.

I drank this tea last night as I watched an episode of ‘my cat from hell’ at 1am. I had just learned about it at dinner and I was curious. What can I say :)


7 Up (and all of the following years) is excellent!


yesterday i got a friend newly hooked on the UP series too. and then today she got another person hooked! spreading the word…
it’s easy to recommend them when they are all on netflix. :)

That sounds like the best resolution ever.
