drank Atomic Lemon by Dammann Frères
1497 tasting notes

One of the days of the Dammann Freres Advent Calendar – I forget which one. I’m sure other commenters have noted it.

Yet again, I oversteeped this. Suggested brewing time: 5 minutes. Actual brewing time: 23 minutes. Ack!

It still tastes lovely though, and is a solid green mate. (Not an herbal, as the package lists it). Tastes very much like mate and lemon rind, although there is a weird cinnamon smell to it that’s a bit offputting.

I love other mate’s though, so this will stay out of my rotation. Having said that, I’ll definitely enjoy the energy boost it gives in the next hours or so!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

It must be the name, because the ingredients you and Lala have described don’t seem anything spectacular or out of the ordinary – but like I noted on her tasting note, this just seems really interesting! I guess this is just another example of how much impact a name or title really has…

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
