Dammann Frères Advent Day 8 (7-February 2021)

Lexa didn’t want a black tea today, so we swapped days 7&8.

I’m struggling to determine what exactly I’m tasting, but I can say I’m not really enjoying it.

The tea is a lovely pink colour from the hibiscus and there’s some tartness from the hibiscus, but then things start getting lost. There seems to be a hint of spice that’s most likely the peppercorns. There’s an odd scent that comes into the taste that makes me think of flat, warm cream soda pop. No thanks!

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!

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.

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.
