So something weird happened with the translation of this tea and it came up as Christmas carcass which I think is wrong. Although I oversteeped this and while I won’t go as far as to call this a carcass, it is definitely a whole lot of hibby and Christmas shoved into a mug. Let’s call it Christmas hostage since it seems like all the Christmas flavors are being held captive and unhappy by the hibiscus. It wasn’t as bad as this may sound b/c it had the typical Christmas spice and some fruitiness but the hibiscus really took over.

Advent day 8! This tastes just like a cherry jolly rancher. Nice, tart cherries combined with almond and ginger. I don’t get much of a gingerbread note, it’s definitely more of a straight tart cherry. I really enjoy hibiscus, so found this cup delightful. I’d consider repurchasing it!

#adventageddon Day Eight – 1/5

Very excited about this tisane because it’s a herbal version of one of my favourite Dammann Freres teas; Noel a Paris. Noel a Paris is a really scrumptious cherry and ginger black tea, and this tea of course follows suit – though I can see visually from the leaf in today’s sachet that it’s quite hibiscus heavy as well. I suppose that makes sense; you need some kind of herbal base and hibiscus and apple are generally the cheapest ones you can use that carry flavour well/have a degree of sweetness.

It’s really nice! I was worried it wouldn’t remind me of Noel a Paris but after taking a few sips I can confidently say that if I was blind tasting this I would probably automatically link it to that blend – I definitely wouldn’t mistake it for Noel a Paris because it’s a lot more tart/sharp from the hibiscus and there’s no black tea but there’s absolutely zero way I wouldn’t assume that this was at least drawing heavy inspiration from it.

I don’t even mind that it’s a lot more tart – it kind of plays up the cherry notes, and you have to get the body/fullness of flavour that would have normally come from the black tea from something and I think this is the smartest thing that could have been chosen!? I do wish a smidge more ginger came through though – the original is stronger.

All of that said, I think I enjoy this exactly as much as I do the OG! It’s really nice!

Flavors: Candy, Cherry, Ginger, Hibiscus, Overripe Cherries, Tart

It’s awesome both blends can be noticeably similar.

You clearly did not oversteep it

Advent calendar – day 7

I don’t love hibiscus but I don’t dislike it either so for me this fruit tea was very nice. But my husband who really dislike hibiscus was happy to pass his cup to me. It has that zing and that was a deal breaker for him. The tea itself is definitely all cherry with a tiny bit of almond. I liked it and I think that it’s the type of tea a child would love. All cherry candy.

Flavors: Almond, Cherry, Hibiscus, Spices

Day 7 of the Dammann Freres Tea Advent Calendar

This is a fruit infusion of mainly (I believe) Cherry and almond. There is mention of gingerbread also on the DF website. And—oh, dear, oh, dear—hibiscus. I can’t stand hibiscus. I can taste only 4 things, one of which is sour. And if something is supposed to be pleasantly tangy, I get UNpleasant sourness. Even back when I was able to smell I never liked sour candies. Now that I don’t get other flavors to round the sourness out I find my mouth puckering at even the thought of hibiscus. But I am going to try every last one of these teas. No skipping! So. Big girl panties time.

It brews up a beautiful rich red liquor.

It tastes like watery sour cough syrup.

I made myself drink half the cup. It did become slightly better as it cooled. Someone who enjoys the zing of hibiscus might very well enjoy this one. It is not fair of me to rate this tea since I so much dislike hibiscus. I would love to hear what others think of it.
