I’m enjoying my foray into the world of Dammann teas. This particular tea from their Christmas series fits what seems to be their favorite profile —– spice + caramel or vanilla + fruit + sweet + a light touch of floral. In this case, cinnamon and ginger and a tiny note of clove with almond and apple produce a soft well balanced sip. The spices blend nicely (cinnamon is the strongest)and the almond dominates the apple but it is definitely there. A pinch of sweetener serves to highlight the flavors. Not my favorite in the Christmas collection but a tea I look forward to drinking again sometime soon.

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

I drink mostly puer and sometimes what we as Westerners think of as black tea.

I no longer assign numerical ratings to teas because our enjoyment of tea is very subjective. Reactions to a particular tea vary from person to person and within the same person across different tasting sessions.

My tea notes are simply comments reflecting my impression at that specific point in time. They are helpful to me and if they happen to be useful to someone else that is good.

For me, tea is magical with its ability to transform by bringing one back to center and inspiring both peace and contentment.
Reformed coffee drinker. Switched to tea as part of my goal to work on living a healthier, more balanced life — haven’t looked back since.
