drank Carcadet de Noël by Dammann Freres
1083 tasting notes

Advent 8.

Smells a lot like Flocons d’Épices which means vanilla-spice cola syrup, though this has a tartness to it like lemon-lime. It really does smell like soda to me. And pink bubblegum. A ribbon of bitter almond hiding underneath. My first thought when sipping was warm Christmas punch :) The hibiscus is perfectly tart, not acrid or biting at all. Awesome flavors, really nice for an hibiscus-rosehip blend!

Flavors: Fruit Punch, Spices, Tart, Vanilla

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
