Alright, time for this Anna to do some Dammann damage. Dammannamage? No. Let’s not even go there.

This smells absolutely lush and lovely. There’s peach and a hint of orange and a vague, smooth fruit base. Brewed, the orange notes become more present, but without overpowering the peach.

In the cup, the tea reflects the scent profile quite accurately; I’m surprised by how much I enjoy the peach/orange combination.

A typical Dammann experience for me – a complex, pleasing blend that I wish packed far more punch. For my tastes, it’s just too subtle, but I do understand why most people love these teas.

[Sample from my epic Instant-Thé order to Rome, October 2013.]

for the most part i appreciate dammann beyond their own advised steeping parameters, at least with blacks. 6 minutes steep makes me happy usually.

Anna

I like the blacks the way they are, though, mostly – but how long would you (over)steep their greens? I have experimented, but find it makes no difference, really.

kaylee sent me a lovely sample of this tea… my first dammann freres green!

a fresh, sweet tasting dragonwell with hints of spiced orange? but not strongly orange… and not a spice i recognize! what am i tasting? almost a brandied orange without the bitterness of alcohol.

quite unique- lovely! thank you so much for such a graceful surprise, kaylee……
