In time for Christmas Dammann Freres has released three Christmas Teas. These special teas are loose leaf teas and they come in beautiful, decorative caddies. Tea Blanc is a white tea from China with purple blueberry petals, shades of fruited almonds and cherries, with a dash of spices and ginger. Tea Rouge is ceylon/Chinese teas with notes of orange, pineapple, caramel, maraschino with orange rind and fruit pieces. Tea Vert is a green tea from China with orange rinds and pieces of apple, scanted with vanilla, orange and spices.
I have tried Christmas Tea Blanc and I was blown away by its form and aroma. The white tea leaves are mixed with a large amount of pink petals creating dreamy contrast. Combined with the saturated cherry/sakura aroma it creates perfect harmony. I think is is one of the most beautiful and attractive looking teas I have seen so far. The liquor is of pale yellow color just like other white teas and as fragrant as in dry form. I defiantly want to try the two other teas if I have the chance.
These teas unlike a lot of other Christmas teas or winter teas have unusual ingredients. Instead of the traditional cinnamon-clove-raisin combinations they are more exotic, yet they bring the Christmas spirit with them, which I think is fantastic. You can also buy them in a gift box of three.
