Recent Tasting Notes

Kiki is home again for the weekend and watching an old Great British Bake Off show.

How’s the tea?

“Very good! Lemony, berry-like. Raspberry, blueberry.”

She’s preoccupied but happy as could be with the show and her tea.

Of course I had a few sips before I handed it off. Hibiscus isn’t acrid at all. Lots of raspberry and ‘forest strawberry’ kind of flavor, artificialish but good. The aroma is too strong for me and very perfumey. Kiki likes strong. She like fruity. She likes hibiscus. She likes to be punched in the face with flavor and aroma, so this is a great tea for her.

It was nice to have her back for a few days :) She’s a good soul.

Got this as a substitute for the Black tea Earl Grey for when caffeine is not a good idea. Its an ok substitute but doesn’t really hit the spot like black tea does. Something is just a little off!

A bit thin, I had to overbrew it to even really taste the leaves. Nothing offputting, but nothing really to the taste either. A bit disappointing.

Another tea today. I came home from garden where some work had to be done. It was rather cold (around 6-8°C) so some warming blend would be nice. And I have found out this one, which I exchanged or bought when I was in Prague. On the tea bag, there is it should have “Orange and Caramel flavour”, which, made me bit nervous about caramel notes.

But! When brewed and steeped for suggested 5-8 minutes (I do not know exact time again), it rather had aroma of oranges and cloves. Not really of caramel, which I do not even noticed much in taste (but was there), maybe it was little bit similar to punch. It was mouthfilling taste, no way being watery.

Even now, after 15 minutes of last sip, I still feel the warming clove and oranges. And still even on palate. Extra points for being caffeine-free, thus good for evenings.

Flavors: Caramel, Cloves, Fruit Punch, Orange

The final sample from my Varieteas box, and one that I’ve been curious to try. It’s described as a herbal tea with orange and caramel, but it actually turned out to be a rooibos-based blend (for some reason, rooibos and herbal occupy separate categories in my head, so I wasn’t expecting that to be the case…) Nevertheless, it’s better than I was expecting once I discovered that. The rooibos is fairly tame; a little brassy, perhaps, but not overwhelming. The orange is nicely prominent, although it’s zesty/pithy rather than juicy. I feel there’s room for a little juiciness here – that would really set this one apart. The caramel is very much a background flavour, but it adds a smooth sweetness that works particularly well with the rooibos. On the whole, I’d say this is a pleasant autumn/winter choice, and I’d not refuse a second cup if the opportunity presented itself.

A somewhat mild fruit tea. The hosehip seems to come out more than the peach in this tea – they might want to tweak it a bit – not a bad tea though.

This is an okay fruit tea, not overly-tart as other similar teas; the apple bits might be helping to temper the hibiscus and rosehip.

drank Lemon-Twist by Ronnefeldt Tea

A nice tea with the the slight taste of bitter lemon peel and citrus flavor. Some might feel that this tastes like theraflu without the actual medicine-flavor, but I think it tastes refreshing on a cold day.

drank Erdbeer Himbeer by Ronnefeldt Tea

This fruit tea isn’t as tart as other hibiscus based teas, so you have a more controlled flavor; you get the berry flavor without the extreme sharpness of the other fruit teas.

A bit tart but not overly fruity like the hibiscus based fruit teas; a bit like a tart fruit punch.

It tastes okay; the smell of the tea is a bit pungent – I almost didn’t want to try it but it is actually better than it smells. I wouldn’t make this again but if someone made it, I wouldn’t avoid drinking it either.

The hibiscus isn’t too strong; like the other ronnefeldt teas – the elderberries are much more pronounced here so you don’t get that sharp ending like the other fruit teas.

I think I oversteeped this a bit; the hibiscus is overpowering the other fruit flavors. Fortunately, I am able to tell the difference with their Red Berries tea. This definitely has an apple and cinnamon flavor to it, the other fruits are much more subtle. This is great if you need a little variation in Ronnefeldt’s fruit tea line.

If you’ve tried Ronnefeldt’s “Red Berries” tea; this is very similar.

Sweet and tart; however not as strong as the red berries tea. I would drink this in lieu of dessert. I love tartness so it isn’t too bad, but I imagine most people would probably want to add sugar or use this as a base for an iced drink.

Very smooth rooibos tea. One of the flavors, perhaps the cornflower blossoms is leaving an aftertaste reminiscent of cough syrup aftertaste. After 5 sips or so, that aftertaste goes away and you have a very cozy tea.

This Earl Grey is a bit stronger than the non-white collection version.

I don’t know if it is because I have a large bag of this in loose leaf form compared to the leafcup version but it smells fresher and much more intense than the leafcup before prepartion.

Although the black tea is stronger, it isn’t overly bitter. The bergamot and flavoring is very controlled; doesn’t overpower the tea.

This tastes similar to Ronnefeldt’s Cream Orange without the cream. It has a more citrus; excellently blended and full of flavor

Orange with slight caramel flavor – the cloves are a bit heavy but overall an okay tea.

How i got it: Free sample from a shop i visited

Experience: It has a clear and light taste. I would say it’s a bit sweeter and less aromatic than my current green (though more floral). It’s quite good.

Would i buy it?: I don’t know… i think my loose leaf still does a bit better, hehe.
