Dammann Frères Advent 2021 – Day 9

Catching up on my advent calendar after a 3-day hiatus. This Oolong Citrons is a hit for me which is somewhat of a surprise because I am in love with Noel a Venise with its lemon caramel meringue pie vibe, and I thought I would sorely miss the caramel in this tea. But no. It was a lovely cup of buttery lemon goodness. It’s a cross between a lemon tarte and limoncello. I enjoyed it very much!

Flavors: Butter, Lemon, Pastries, Smooth

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 4 min, 30 sec

Oolong isn’t often my first choice, but lemony stuff is. This sounds delightful!

It really is. I’m with you on the Oolong. I don’t dislike them but I don’t crave them either. But I liked this one there are a couple of teas from Lupicia that are really delicious too.

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…

I started with French tea companies like Mariage Freres, Dammann Freres, Kusmi, Nina’s, and TheOdor, because I’m French and it makes me feel closer to home, but I would 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 like my tea with a little sugar/sweetener.

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.

60-69: Maybe good for someone else but definitely not my thing.

50-59: Drinkable

1-49: Just no.
