Dammann Frères Advent Calendar – December 18th
Oh, hello again. I’ve been sick over the past few days, so I haven’t been around. I also couldn’t really smell or taste well, so while I did open my advent calendar door every day, I put the single sachets aside until now. And I do confess, I’m definitely not at full smelling and/or tasting capacity yet, but I’m far too fed up with being sick to put tea drinking off any longer. So while I suspect I won’t do these justice, I’m going to drink them anyway because I’m tired of waiting. So there!
I didn’t look too closely at the sachet, but I did notice red peppercorns mixed in with the rooibos, which I thought was odd. Dry scent is orange and perhaps grapefruit with a touch of spice. The steeped tea… smells and tastes like bubblegum to me, which seems to be a recurring theme when DF tries to mix fruit and spice. Strange! I can taste a bit of orange, but otherwise it’s all bubblegum.
Flavors: Candy, Orange
