Day 23!

I have not yet done day 22 becuase I forgot it at home yesterday and then this morning I realized it was a herbal, which I won’t drink during the day.

I love this tea. I had wanted to order a bag of it from Dammann when I ordered this advent calendar but my Steepster wish list wasn’t working (no surprise there) and I didn’t realize this one was on the list until it was too late. Ahhh, next year I guess.

This tea is a lovely black base. There are hints of cherry with some floral. Makes me think cherry blossom. Mmmmmm. The black base is smooth but there is just a little kick at the end of the sip. This tea is slightly creamy, but not really in a dairy sense. Maybe it is the almond. It is thick. There is just a little hint of sweet ginger. Kind of like candied ginger. It is very faint.

I will have to savour this cup for a while.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
