From Dammann Freres

“Thé des Mille Collines” flavored black tea

Although the Rwandan landscapes, lush and hilly, inspire a gentle way of life, the teas they produce are strong and full-bodied. This blend combines the strength of Rwanda black tea and the fragrance of fine spices: ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, pink pepper-corn and clove. It can be enjoyed with a drop of milk or brewed directly into hot milk.

Brewing time: 4 to 5 minutes

Advent Calendar Day Twenty

Ok, so I 100% understand the need to incorporate a no frills Chai into the advent calendar because the flavour profile definitely does fill a gap flavour wise. Plus, it’s hard to argue against Chai being seasonally appropriate…

So, I get it. I just don’t like it.

And really that’s no surprise; I’m not a lover of Chai and this one is very clearly a bold, classic style Chai. The best I can do is focus on the elements of the blend that I DO like; that primarily meaning I trying to hone in on the clove flavour. It’s hard to do with how balanced this is, though…

Not rating; clearly I’m too biased to give this a fair shot.

I bought this tea while in Paris (my favorite tea shop is Dammann Freres) because the smell was so wonderful. If you love clove and cardamom, this chai is for you! Whole cardamom pods are in the mix!

Backlog from yesterday night
This is an interesting chai tea and as its name suggests it, this is a Rwandan tea. Which is rarer than a chai made on an Indian tea base .

We immediately see by the size and type of leaves that we are dealing with a Rwandan tea. The leaves are super short , with a chocolate colour and have almost a circle shape.

We have lovely and nice mixed spices : ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and pink berries

I opted for an Indian style of preparation because of the gloomy weather. I got so a barely beige liquor.

This chai had not a very strong flavor , spices are present, very mixed, difficult to feel each one separately. Cardamom is nonetheless a little more present in this chai .

I’m not super excited . I much preferred Anichaï of Dammann Frères too . I love an heavy spice chai , this one was very discreet.

But my cat loved it :)

You can see pics of this tea and of the thief cat here :

Looks a lot like “Chairman Meow” in my household.
