Dammann Frères Advent Day 8 (7-February 2021)

Lexa didn’t want a black tea today, so we swapped days 7&8.

I’m struggling to determine what exactly I’m tasting, but I can say I’m not really enjoying it.

The tea is a lovely pink colour from the hibiscus and there’s some tartness from the hibiscus, but then things start getting lost. There seems to be a hint of spice that’s most likely the peppercorns. There’s an odd scent that comes into the taste that makes me think of flat, warm cream soda pop. No thanks!

2020 Advent Calendar – Day 8. I liked this one, but for full disclosure I don’t mind the fruit infusions carcadets from Dammann. In fact over this past year I have developped a liking for plain hibiscus tea (I fast periodically, and when I do all I can drink is water and herbal tea including hibiscus tea, so I have come to like hibiscus’ tartness). Here, no surprise, the hibiscus was front and center but the tartness was not bad at all (unlike the Samba version). I liked the cardamon a lot — warm and wintery. It reminded me of spiced fruit punch candy. It’s probably my second favorite Carcadet after Framboise Passion.

Dammann Frères Advent Calendar – Day 8

What a pretty and festive wrapper! White with red foil stripes, like a candy cane. Despite this, I am not excited for this one. As far as I know, “carcadet” is Dammann code for fruit tisane. And those have never been favorites of mine… It smells pleasant enough though, with fruit and spices and a bit of tartness.

This steeped up a deep hibiscus red-purple (not a great sign for me, LOL). It’s honestly not half bad. The vague fruitiness combined with the hibiscus sort of approximates cranberry for me, and there is some pleasant mild spicing of cardamom and ginger. It is quite tart, but not quite sour enough to make me pucker.

It’s fine, but still a fruit tisane with hibiscus, of which there are many. I admit to being highly amused that on the Dammann website, it says “Main flavor: Hibiscus”. ROFL, well it’s definitely accurate! XD

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
