drank Flocons d'Épices by Dammann Freres
398 tasting notes

I really like the smell of this dry tea. I could wear it as a perfume with its citrus sweet spice notes. The orange is a sharp orange almost grapefruit flavour and the sweet aspects of this tea remind me of vanilla.

The tea is a nice copper colour, and smells of sweet spice over sharp bitter orange notes mixed with a hint of pastry from the tea base. The spice is more dominant than in the dry tea.

The sweet almost vanilla like flavour blends with the citrus notes, followed by cinnamon, nutmeg and more peppery spice. The tea has enough astringency to give the tea a thicker mouth feel and is otherwise sweet with a bit of malt. The spice becomes stronger as the tea cools, with the nutmeg making a stronger presence. A nice morning or afternoon tea, as the spice is warming but the sweet citrus creates a sense of brightness and alertness.

I bag in 10 oz for @ 4 min.

It re-steeps consistently as well.

Did you grab this from Vendome Cadeau?

You’ll have a chance to try it soon it’s in the calendar! But it looks like it’s the same tea as Christmas in Alsace. So if you love it you should be able to buy more, as they do have it at cadeau-deco-vendome. Dammann has it in tins at their store.

interesting… this one seems pretty tasty. I’ll have to see how my first order from cadeau goes…
