The holiday season brings with it a symphony of flavors, and this year, acclaimed tea house Dammann Frères has teamed up with panettone virtuoso Christophe Louie to create a culinary delight that is sure to tantalize your taste buds. Since its founding in 1825, Dammann Frères has earned its stripes as a leading name in the world of tea, known for its innovative recipes and exquisite flavors. It’s a legacy they’ve built with passion, turning tea into an art form.
Their latest creation is a testament to this legacy as they introduce a Panettone infused with the aromatic charm of one of their signature festive tea blends. Nestled in a beautifully designed gift box, this panettone comes with a selection of tea bags, making it the perfect gift for the gourmands in your life.
Dammann Frères has a long tradition of working with chefs and artisans who bring a strong sense of identity and innovation to their craft. From the inventive Guillaume Sanchez to the skilled Jessica Préalpato, they have always sought out partnerships that reflect their own commitment to excellence. And this year, they found the perfect match in Christophe Louie, a maestro in the art of panettone making.
The goal was simple: capture the essence of gourmandise, generosity and conviviality in a single creation. And they hit the mark. The panettone they created is a celebration of texture and flavor, with an airy crumb, delicate softness, and generous shape that makes it a delightful treat to share at the holiday table.
Chloé Jumeau-Lafond, Artistic Director of Dammann Frères, expressed her enthusiasm for the collaboration: “Our worlds were made to meet! I’ve always had a special place in my heart for panettone, and when it’s served with a pot of our tea and some clementines, it’s heavenly. Christophe Louie was a natural choice for this project. His ability to create an original recipe that complements the ginger, bitter orange and cherry notes of our Christmas Rooibos is nothing short of remarkable.“

Christophe Louie, equally excited about the partnership, shared his thoughts, “When I first encountered Dammann Frères and their Rooibos, I was immediately captivated. The idea of creating a Panettone recipe that embodies the warm, spicy notes of their tea was irresistible. The result is a unique blend that perfectly captures the spirit of the festive season.“
The panettone itself is a work of pastry art, made from an infusion of Christmas Rooibos tea, enriched with a medley of spices, orange peel and the sweet notes of gingerbread, bitter orange and cherry. Christophe Louie’s masterful addition of cranberry, apple, ginger, vanilla and candied orange ensures that every bite is an explosion of flavor.
Perfectly packaged, the Dammann Frères x Christophe Louie Panettone also includes a box of 6 Flocons d’Épices tea bags, a black tea infused with citrus and Christmas spices, making it the ideal accompaniment to this festive treat.
Priced at €45, this limited edition panettone is available at Christophe Louie’s Paris boutique and selected Dammann Frères stores. And for those who prefer to savor it on the spot, you can enjoy a slice right at Christophe Louie’s, paired with a cup of Dammann’s finest tea. This panettone is not just a dessert; it’s a celebration of taste, a feast for the senses, and a perfect addition to your holiday celebrations. Enjoy it!
