drank Noël à Paris by Dammann Freres
64 tasting notes

Advent calendar – day 13

Trying to catch up with my teas… The problem is that I have a 20oz Yeti cup that I use in the morning for a double cup of tea to start my day, And of course it’s too big for the Dammann samples, so I end up drinking teas from my own cupboard in the morning and getting behind. …1st world problems :p

Another cherry tea. I might be an easy customer, but I like this one too even though I don’t see myself yearning for a cup of cherry tea anytime. This one is a bit more straight forward maybe? Cherries and almond with a hint of ginger. It reminds me a little of a cherry cobbler. But it did leave me with a bit of a dry mouth though (maybe the way I brewed it?).

I think it would be a great one for cherry lovers like my husband. For me, it was another fun tea to try.

Flavors: Almond, Fruity, Overripe Cherries

I started drinking tea in 2018 when a friend introduced me to flavored black teas. Since then, I have developed a bit of a tea addiction. I never want to be without the teas I love, but I’m perpetually compelled to try new ones…

Being French and living in the US, I started with French tea companies like Mariage Freres, Dammann Freres, Kusmi, Nina’s, and TheOdor, but I’d love to find tea companies I love as much on this side of the Atlantic.

I’m partial to dessert teas and in terms of flavors, I adore almond, pistachio, biscuit, nutty types, as well as caramel, cream, cake, vanilla, toffee, chocolate, and cookies. For me, it’s all about drinking my dessert!!! I also like fruity teas like peach, melon, mango, raspberry, strawberry, figs, and even grapefruit flavored teas. I am discovering more floral teas and testing the waters there, but I don’t care for earl greys or chai. I have not expanded into unflavored teas yet, but maybe one day.

For full disclosure I usually add a little bit of stevia to my teas.

Tea ratings: (I’m not a tough customer and I don’t have a very sophisticated palate.)

96-100: Pure deliciousness and all-time favourite teas.

90-95: Love love love. Delicious teas I reach for all the time.

80-89: Good to great teas I’d drink any day of the week.

75-79: Good teas that I would be happy to drink from time to time.

70-74: Teas that are just ok for me. They’re not bad teas, but not my preference.

50-69: Drinkable but definitely not my thing.

1-49: Just no.
