Day 3 Dammann Freres Advent Calendar
Day 1 was a black tea, Day 2 was a green tea. Day 3 is an herbal. Each day I’ve gotten to try a different sort of tea than I’ve ever had before. This is no exception. I really enjoy a cup of peppermint tea at the end of a day, especially if I over ate and my tummy is unhappy, so I was eager to try this one. Since it was herbal and I was away from the apartment from 6:30 am until 9:00 pm I decided to enjoy this one before bed. And I do enjoy it. Not a keeper, but this would be great to have on hand for the unhappy tummy moments.
My high school French is pretty sketchy, but I knew Menthe was mint. I didn’t recognize Reglisse. I had to look it up. Licorice. Black licorice. The DF website says this is ment with licorice as a secondary flavor. But the flavor of the tea is for me predominantly black licorice, with mint being very much in the background. If you like black licorice, like those black licorice Nibs candies, you will probably love this tea. I quite like it. I don’t see myself ordering 100 grams anytime soon. but a small amount of this tea may be on the Dammann Freres order I plan to make early next year. We’ll see which other teas I find to love.
