What a delight to have a connection in Paris and be able to visit a Dammann Frères boutique in person. Their “Quatre Fruits Rouges” blend, marrying black tea with notes of strawberries, cherries, and raspberries, conjures the essence of a fine red fruit jam. Its profound, rich flavour envelops the palate, making each sip a delicious morning ritual.

Flavors: Red Fruits

drank Hot Chocolate by DAVIDsTEA
107 tasting notes

Very good tea but it was a bit embarrassing to drink it because every time I would make it, someone in the office would shout « it smells like chocolate!!». This taste more like dark chocolate than milk chocolate and, even though I always hated dark chocolate because of the bitterness, I really enjoy this one! Another good chocolate tea from Davidstea.

I would be a very good chai-ish tea if only there wasn’t so much added sugar! I feel like Davidstea is doing this more and more..

Agree on the added sugar…but I still can’t help loving it. It’s certainly a dessert treat for me though

drank Si Ji Chun by Camellia Sinensis

Beautiful twisted leaves. Unfortunately, my taste buds are not precise enough. I can’t smell or taste the flowers or caramel that every body else is talking about. To me, it just tastes like … a good wulong.

drank Jardin Bleu by Dammann Frères

I smell a bit of sweet strawberry. I could compare it to Four red fruits from Kusmi which is another strawberry black tea with a stronger strawberry scent. Very good but I would rather go with Noël à Prague and Coquelicot gourmand from this house, they have more personality whereas Jardin bleu is more average (but still good!).

It has a delicious smell of tropical fruits (pineapple) with a hint of tart strawberry. It’s much more ‘mature’ and less artifical than Davidstea fruit teas and works well either hot or cold.

drank Feng shui by Monsieur T

I’m not sure of what I’m smelling first. Is it eucalyptus? It smells very strong, and I’ve already smell this before but I can’t put a name on it. It doesn’t taste incredibly good hot but I guess that’s the kind of herbal drink that you would rather drink for the benefits than for the taste. However, it is surprisingly good cold-steeped. Instead of a light yellow colour, it is bright pink and it tastes much more fruity.

drank Run for Løv by Løv Organic
107 tasting notes

Dry, I smell red fruits – it smells like raspberry to me but that’s probably rather pomegranate and goji berry. Steeped, it’s a clear pomegranate smell, a bit like a diluted pomegranate juice. Since hibiscus is a major ingredient, that’s pretty much all it tastes though. Not worth trying hot. This was clearly thought out to be drink cold or iced. Between the two, I prefer it iced because cold-steeping doesn’t bring out any flavours. At least iced you get the hibiscus.

I’m tired though of Kusmi and Løv marketing strategy saying that this kind of tea will make you happy, this kind of tea will detoxify your body, and now this kind of tea will make your recover after a run or a yoga class? That’s absurd. You need a good substantial meal after a workout, that’s it.

I’m a curious person, I always love to discover new things, new teas, new brands.

I’ve tried several things from David’s Tea as it is the most accessible tea store in Montréal and that there is no minimum amount when buying in bulk. I’ve also tried a few teas from Camellia Sinensis and Kusmi, but their minimum amount makes me try less things.

I would really like to try new brands, especially French brands such as Mariage Frères, Dammann Frères, le Palais des thés and Fauchon. There’s also a lovely tea store in Québec city called «Monsieur T» that I would like to try.
