Brutaliteas just posted theirs. I highly recommend their teas if you haven’t tried them yet.

Never heard of them, but OMG those tea names are hilarious!

The names are definitely what initially drew me in!

Has anyone tried the Suki Tea advent calendar before? It looks really pretty, but I’ve never had any of their tea… https://suki-tea.com/tea-advent-calendar

What is everyone’s preference between Palais des Thés and Dammann Freres? I haven’t tried either brand, but I have to pare down my advent selections.

Personally I tend to prefer Dammann Freres – both have ok quality teas (very distinctly European style) but I generally find the Dammann Freres flavours to be a bit more unique.

I’m much more familiar with Dammann Freres – I think I’ve only tried one Palais des Thes blend… I’d definitely go with Dammann Freres because I KNOW I like many of their Noel teas.

If you like unique flavors, I would recommend the Dammann Freres advent calendar as I remember it having a couple of very unique teas (including an exotic fruit one). If you are more of a fan of traditional tea, then I would say Palais de Thés.

Last year, I ordered the Dammann Freres and the Palais de Thés and I think that would most likely reorder the Palais de Thés one.

Noël Sublime Tea Advent Calendar by Mariage Frères, is available at markethallfoods.com.
Wish there was a description of all tea varieties. Hesitate to pay $70, for unknown teas.

Dustin said

Damn it! I already bought 3 advent calendars and had given up on an MF one. Market Hall has two locations near me too. I could totally go in and pick one up. What do I do?!!!

Gift one of the other calendars and buy the MF one! ") People are raving about MF calendar on the MF Facebook site…. I’m anxious to hear your personal review regarding this advent calendar.

paprika said

Thank you for this heads up! I was really kicking myself for not jumping on the MF one immediately Although it’s pricey, I am really excited to try it.

Dustin said

It was 40€ on the MF website and 20 more for shipping to the states. Market Hall has them for $70 and charges $12 for shipping. Taxes aside, it would have been 66.46 in USD to buy it on the MF website and is $82 on the Market Hall website. Seems kinda crazy that their US distributors would charge so much more. From what I gather you get only one teabag per day. If it was $40 here, I’d probably get one, but I don’t think I can justify nearly double the price. I think I’ve talked myself out of it.
