A Tea Affair with Dammann Frères

Exquisite, elegant and prestigious are just a few words which come to mind when I hear the name “Dammann Frères“. I haven’t had the opportunity to travel to Paris to visit their famous store located in the historic Place Des Vosges, but it’s on my to do list! In the meantime, I’m thankful I can bring a little bit of Paris into my home to enjoy. If you haven’t had the opportunity to have a tea affair with Dammann Frères , let me tell you why you should consider having one.

There is tea and there is TEA! Dammann Frères should be high on your top ten list if you like exceptional quality tea. Yes, in comparison to other top tea brands, you can expect to pay slightly more for their loose teas, but it’s truly worth it.

Today I drinking Bali which is described as follows –

Bali” flavored green tea

With fresh, floral and fruity notes, this delicately flavoured blend is to be appreciated year-round, hot or chilled. Sencha tea, jasmine green tea and flower petals, lychee, grapefruit, bush peach and rose flavours.

This is a fruity, flowery and slightly floral green tea blend. The liquor has a brilliant deep cognac color and the fragrant aroma is out of this world! The sweetness shows up first on your palette, followed by a slightly peppery and flowery finish.

The packaging is sophisticated and tastefully done. Both the glossy box and tin have the old world screened logo. Not only do the tins look good stacked on top of a shelf, but you will be happy to know the lids fit nice and snug.

If you want to familiarize yourself with the Dammann Frères teas, I recommend you to visit their shop in Prague.  You can always find information there about teas, history and degustation. We have a small talk and here what I have found.

Brewing delicious tea is an ancient art that requires the best dried leaves and flowers and the patience to allow the herbal and floral notes to release themselves into your perfectly pristine cup. Dammann Frères teas fully realize the ritual of releasing the hidden flavors and aromas of a sachet of blended leaves, one perfect cup at a time.

They feature the line’s fruit infusions (“ la Fontaine aux Fruits”) as well as herbal teas (“L’Herboristeried’Orgeval”). Each blend is carefully enrobed in Dammann’s special Cristal tea bag. Slight and transparent, the Cristal tea bag helps you realize the taste and aesthetic pleasures of the tea leaf without leaching the flavor of the actual bag into your brew. As luxuriously flavorful and as it is seeped in history, the Dammann Frères line of teas is sure to delight and satisfy.

Just a side note – I don’t think my husband realized what great timing he had when he surprised me with these lovely roses. They helped create just the right atmosphere for my tea affair. LOL!

“If you are cold, tea will warm you;

if you are too heated, it will cool you;

If you are depressed, it will cheer you;

If you are excited, it will calm you.”
