In the bag, this is perfection – the most elegant, sumptuous fruitiness, ripe with peach and passionfruit.

But steeped, it’s so subtle it’s silly – I’m going to refrain from rating this, and will henceforth follow Dinosara’s advice and steep these DF teas much hotter.

Seriously, peach, where did you go? We had a date.

Well, so much for my smell accuracy … this came to me by way of Lori in a little care package, so there was no package description to read. When I steeped and sniffed this morning, the first two flavor words that came to mind were “darjeeling” and “pineapple.”

Not even close, according to the manufacturer description—green with strawberry, passionfruit, peach. But it’s a beautiful gold color and light and fruity. Something that would definitely fit a Mother’s Day high tea in the garden with gloves and feather boas.

There was barely any on the tin and certainly no steeping instructions. It is definitely a light and pleasant tea…

With pinkies extended … not that I am NEARLY that refined!

Mmm, that sounds so yummy :) The description reminds me of a tea I tried which has strawberry, pineapple, and papaya with green and black tea, which I liked a lot—I should order some of this!

gmathis

Lori recommended a 3-minute steep and it was about right.

I can agree with Lori’s tasting notes. This tea is very light in flavor, the smell of the dry leaf mix is heavenly very soft like a potpourri smell but not like yucky potpourri like a peach potpourri. Which makes since because the ingredients read green tea, passion fruit, bush peach and wild strawberry, pineapple bits and cornflower petals. It’s quite beautiful to look at. The taste is mildly astringent and while I do pick up on the fruit I think I mostly pick up on the peach and passionfruit I will have to try making this a few more times to see if I pick up on the pineapple which is what I really want to taste in here. Not bad wouldn’t buy the again but I don’t totally hate it. I LOVE the tin though:)

I think I liked this tea more than you did.. I didn’t feel like it tasted too astringent..However, it was very difficult to discern individual fruit flavors in this tea. They just meld together to to taste “tropical”.

I love the green tea base to this tea! It’s not the buttery vegetable type of green…it tastes more like my lovely Dragon well…or at least has similar notes. I haven’t tried to find out what exactly this base is, so I could be way off, I just know that I like these leaves. The flavor of peach doesn’t really come through for me, but the passionfruit, whoa the passionfruit aroma is definitely there, and a bit in the after taste. This is a quite pleasant cup. I think I’ll brew up another cup, and possibly a small pitcher of iced for tomorrow. Thank you soccermom for sharing this with me!

I can clearly see all of the ingredients. Dry it smells like passionfruit and green tea. I steeped it up. This tastes like passionfruit with abit of peach and green tea. This is good not too tart but natural tasting and the green tea is not hitting me too strongly luckily.

Lori

This is one tea that I enjoy.

I drank this at a friend’s place. I chose it by default, as he offered me mainly Christmas spice-laden teas, totally right for the season but usually not so to my taste. I must confess I was not overly enthusiastic at first, at the idea of drinking a flavored green, as I often am wary of the green teas bitterness.
The smell was delightful, very tart and fruity. I had a cold so could not really recognize the different fruits among the flavors.
I would definitely drink it again, though I’m still unsure whether I’m ready to buy a flavored green and whether this one would be it.

This is a high quality, smooth and delightful green tea. Overall, it is a mild tropical flavor but this is not a one-note flavor. No single flavor predominates but each of the added flavors come together in a light manner… A highly enjoyable tea that will be perfect when the weather warms……

Day 1 of Advent Calendar.

This is one of the teas in the calendar I had not tried before.

On first sniff of the tea sachet it smelled strongly of green tea, maybe a bit bitter with strong artificial strawberry scent.

The brewed tea initially tasted quite bland and thin and my first thought was that I needed to add some sweetener. After the tea sat for a bit in my travel mug it thickened up quite a bit. The green tea base is quite creamy and buttery. Slightly vegetal and astringent in the aftertaste. No need to add sweetener becuase the tea also has transformed into hints of sweet strawberry, albeit artificial strawberry. On every few sips I feel like I get a kick, like the kind you get from tart pineapple. I don’t seem to taste any other fruits but the overall taste is vaguely tropical. I think the cornflowers are what is giving the tea the thick feeling. I anticipated it to have a bit of pastry flavour but I am not getting any of that today.

A decent start to the next 24 days.

Wow, we had completely different experiences! It’s amazing how that works. :)

I know, I read your view first so I wasn’t anticipating what I ended up tasting.

I’m definitely jealous of you two :P

Dammann Frères Advent Calendar – December 1st

Wee, so excited to finally start this thing! I’ve been giving it longing looks since it got here (clearly I should’ve put it somewhere where I couldn’t see it).

This is a sencha tea with passion fruit, peach, strawberry, and pineapple. There are some colorful flower petals mixed in, making it quite attractive. Dry scent is definitely fruity and sweet, and it’s heaviest on the peach. I did a shorter steep since I find most flavored green teas get bitter rather quickly, hopefully that wasn’t a mistake.

Whoa, this sencha is really grassy and… leaf-y tasting. Maybe a touch like eating raw spinach? Or wheatgrass. I was not expecting it to have so much oomph. The fruit, on the other hand, is far more subtle than I expected! I can taste the peach slightly, and more so in the aftertaste, but not much else. Overall, it’s not bad, but not what I expected. The focus is definitely mostly on the base tea here, and it’s perhaps the grassiest base I’ve ever tasted.

Flavors: Grass, Peach, Spinach

Dammann Advent Calendar, Day 1

It was funny finding this as the first tea in the calendar, since I had requested (and received) a sample of it with my previous order.

I feel pretty much the same way about this tea that I did the first time I had it, which is to say, it’s ok. I don’t love it, I don’t hate it. It’s a fruity green tea on a pretty grassy sencha base. I don’t really care too much for Dammann’s sencha base, and I don’t have a lot of green teas by them. I mean, I don’t really care for nearly any flavored green tea these days. But I do still like them cold brewed, so I will have to remember to cold brew my last sachet of this (from the order). I will say that I left some of this in my cup and it got quite cold, and it was a nice tasty fruity green, and the fruit was even fruitier.

I agree on the flavored greens teas! The only ones I tend to enjoy are citrus flavors.
