Does this tea taste like bourbon? No. Do I care? No. Am I actually happier that it doesn’t? Yes. So, what does this taste like? Vanilla-caramel yum! Check out my full review (featuring a story of the time I was 10-years-old and my mom let me try actual bourbon) here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/03/26/bourbon-from-dammann-freres-2/

This is a sample that came with a gift I received. Unfortunately I have allowed several DF samples to get a bit of age on them, so they are not as fresh as what most of you would be tasting.
When I drink samples like this, I am usually joined by my youngest daughter. To stretch the tea so that we can both have a small cup, we make it in a kamjove and resteep immediately, combining the two steeps. Usually we still get good flavor.
This time we did get a good tasting tea, but I feel that this one would have been really truly tasty full strength. The grapefruit was the predominant flavor I picked up, and it was so good that I wished it was even stronger. It didn’t seem overly floral but then I don’t mind floral tea as long as it is natural tasting rather than perfume-y or blatantly synthetic.
Overall, a good tea that I would definitely drink again and would be a great choice if I wanted something tropical.

This blend smells like a candy store! But to me, the flavor is a bit muddied…I do pick out the poppy seeds and marzipan, but there’s also some floral notes and something a bit sour. Not something I’d drink again.
Flavors: Candy, Marzipan
Thanks, Sil, for sharing this one with me, especially given my fondness for vanilla teas. I like this one a lot—possibly the scent rising from the steaming cup even more so than the flavour coming through in the sips. The scent really is intoxicating. Yum. The flavour seems to round out more nicely as the tea cools a bit. Nice one. I wonder how it compares to my favourite vanilla black.
Flavors: Malt, Vanilla
mmmm samplr from VariaTea. This doesn’t beat out my favourite vanilla tea but it was a pretty tasty cup. This might, though it’s been a long time since i’ve had others, be my favourite vanilla from DF…there’ s a creaminess here that enhances the vanilla and makes this a tasty cup. Glad i tried it, though happy it doesn’t beat out my other vanilla fav :)
I’ve had this one for a while and been cold brewing it. It is reasonably tasty, but I think on the whole I prefer fruitier cold brews to ones that are all floral. There is something very thick and rich about this tea, and I think I would love it on a black base, but on a green it neither works great as a hot or a cold tea for me.
ETA: I looked at the ingredients again and it’s actually supposed to be pretty fruity (strawberry, rhubarb, raspberry), but I get almost no distinct notes of those. I could almost see dates, but they are not listed. Would have been awesome with a sharper tart rhubarb note.
Sample from VariaTEA I didn’t look this one up so had no idea what the flavouring was. It was a good cup but i had a lot of trouble figuring out what was i was drinking besides “fruity” On seeing the flavlouring, maaaybe i was picking up on the apricot since it wasn’t “red fruit” taste..but i couldn’t say for sure. Fun to try anyway!
This tea is…interesting. I’ve had it 3 or 4 times now and just can’t make up my mind what I think of it! The flavor is rather muddled: lots of floral and fruity notes with nothing specific standing out. The base is smooth and unobtrusive. There’s no bitterness, astringency, or artificial flavor that I’m picking up on, so nothing to hate…but nothing to love either.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity
I have realized recently that I’ve never reviewed most of the green teas that I use for cold brewing nearly every day, and that it would probably be a good idea to note which are my favorites so that I can reorder. So a series of tasting notes!
This tea is green apple, and it is quite tasty. It is crisp and a little appley, although the green tea does make it edge toward grassy and almost too vegetal. I’m not sure whether this one is a reorder for me, and I think it somewhat middle-of-the-road when it comes to my cold brew teas; I reach for it more than some but less than others.
Received my portion of the Dammann Freres group order on national popcorn day. Luckily I had the perfect tea to celebrate with! http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/21/pop-corn-from-dammann-freres/
