Dammann Frères Advent Day 2 (2-February 2021)

It seems like there was a mix-up in our calendars because Lex got “Week-end à Paris” and I got this tea!

This smells like those dried blueberries they add into instant porridge both dry and steeped. The taste does have hints of blueberry with a distinct oolong base. I’m not huge on lighter oolongs, so it’s not my favourite. There’s a slight mineral taste. I’m not really sure where the banana is?

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 4 min, 0 sec

Bio

I live with my partner and our two bunnies: Callie and Ben, and two cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love straight and flavoured black teas and this is what I’m usually drinking.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs, whites, and subtly flavoured greens. Other teas I’m happy to try at least once!

Likes:
Raspberry, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, cacao/dark chocolate, honey, coconut, and chai spices. I’m open to other flavoured teas but they can’t be cloying or fake/candy like.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, flowers (rose and jasmine), and ginger (except in chai).

Flavours that can go either way:
Hibiscus, vanilla, and peach.
