From Dammann Freres

Appreciated for many years, ‘Paul & Virginie’ the Dammann Freres blend, is now available as green flavoured tea.
The fresh taste of green Sencha tea is here paired with the flavours of a bouquet of red fruits with notes of vanilla and caramel. Pieces of strawberries and redcurrants make this blend an irresistible tea!

This tea is so far my least favorite from Damman Freres. It brewed up an unpleasant brownish color rather than a nice green. The flavor is ok but not great. No one fruit flavor is truly evident, but there is a melange of various flavors instead. I would like to tast the berries or the vanilla but I get no single strong flavor.

Dammann Advent Calendar, Day 17

And I’m caught up since I won’t be drinking the 18th (rooibos)! I couldn’t remember if I have had the black version of this tea, and I have. I enjoyed that one a fair amount, which makes sense. I mean, I love red fruits blends, and plus vanilla and caramel is great.

I would say that the green version is pretty good, but I prefer the black (not surprising). The biggest thing here is that I got the most intense flavor of marshmallow here. Tart and sweet red fruits, and then the aftertaste would bloom into marshmallow, moreso than any other tea I’ve ever tried. I actually really love that about it. What is it about the green vs. black that gets marshmallow? Maybe the green tones down the caramel notes and that’s what they turn into? I dunno, but it’s very tasty. Now I want to try the black version again just to make sure I don’t get marshmallow from that.

Flavors: Marshmallow, Red Fruits

I like that you said marshmallow. I had trouble describing whether te tea was creamy vanilla or caramel but I think marshmallow is a better description.

Dinosara

Yeah, I looked at your note and thought it sounded like you might be getting a similar flavor.

Dammann Frères Advent Calendar – December 17th

I admit, I’m always a tiny bit disappointed inside when it’s a green tea inside the little door. I generally prefer a black or even white tea as a base for flavoring. That being said, the green teas in this calendar so far have been fine, I’ve even liked some of them. :P Inside this sachet are large green leaves and pieces of dried strawberry. Dry scent is delicious strawberry and cream with vanilla!

Mm, the steeped tea smells like whipped cream and strawberries. The taste is actually a bit heavy on the base tea, which is a bit grassy. There’s a little bit of tart strawberry, but mostly I taste a lovely creamy vanilla flavor, which unfortunately does not go well with the grassy base. There’s a weird tart aftertaste as well that comes off as a bit artificial. I need to try the black version of this one!

Oh man, this sounds like it smells so good. I’m sorry it didn’t taste as good as it smelled!

Day 17.

Is this a new tea? I had to add it to the website. There is black version on steepster but not a green. Hopefully this is getting posted in the right spot.

On first smell of the dried tea, all I could think of was cherry cough syrup green tea. Not exactly appetizing.

The taste is much better. It is a smooth, creamy, green tea. The creaminess may be a bit of vanilla or a bit of caramel but I can’t quite place the source of the creaminess that I am feeling on my palate. I am getting some kind of fruity flavour which I attribute to cherry but I am a bit unsure. There is also a nice floral component to this tea. It is just very slightly sweet. There is a very tiny touch of astringency to the green tea at the end of the sip. The flavours of the tea feel a bit watered down.

I did not look up the description of this tea before I postd about it. So I could be way off taste. But that is what I am tasting.
