Dammann Frères Advent 2021 – Day 12
I am back in the land of the living, and feeling much better! I took this tea with me on my morning walk, and I’m so glad I did. I don’t think I would have appreciated it yesterday when I was so under the weather.

Although to be fair, I almost passed on it when I opened the packet. So much cinnamon. But brewed, the apple came out and the cinnamon & spices calmed down. Not sure that I got much almond in my cup. This tea was perfect for a cold December morning. Spiced apple tea or spiced apple cider is the best description I can come up with. I wasn’t sure at first but halfway through the walk, I decided it wasn’t bad at all! All in all, I liked it much better than in my previous tries. Still not a tea I would yearn for but it was a nice change of pace from my usual favorites. This would be a great tea for apple tea and cinnamon tea lovers.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Fruity, Spices

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.
