Day 22!

Back to delicious Dammann teas! Yumm! I agree with Dinosara, this one reminds me of a cookie. It is a hard and thin shortbread biscuit type cookie with Christmas spices like clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. It is super delicious. The liquor is sweet. I think it could have used a tiny bit of sweetener but I still didn’t add any. I get a bit of lemon balm in the aftertaste, it lingers for a while. But that is ok because the beforetaste is so good.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
