There was a a Teekanne gift assortment in my family cupboard and today I wasn’t really into experiments. Mreover, I had that cool tea from Pfanner, so I decided to brew something simple. Ugh.
Not a fan of this blend. Strong artificial cherries and little of strawberries. In aroma. Taste was really off, rather mostly hibiscus — tart. I miss some creamy notes! Strawberries were non present here as well. And it was as well somehow sweet, kind of stevia sweetness? (It’s not there!)
Flavors: Artificial, Cherry, Tart
This is my favourite fruit tea, and of course, from Teekanne.
Why I like it?
It’s very floral and if you like elderflower, you bet it is there. And that refreshing lemon notes!
Okay, I don’t know much what to write about this tea. It is very floral and juicy and refreshing lemon. Nice to drink anytime.
Flavors: Floral, Lemon
Prepared this tea today morning. I could not recall brewing it before, but I am pretty sure I did.
Anyway, to be honest, I was afraid it will be very artificial and tart. It is the second – tart. But it is black currant, so of course I expected it and I was prepared for it.
It was really juicy as well! So, taste is clearly black currant juice with refreshing aftertaste as lemon. It wasn’t artificial at all, though no black currant in? It was even quite mouth-watering, so this will be a cup for summer too I think. Enjoayble and simple :)
Flavors: Black Currant, Lemon, Tart
This one was resting in cupboard for long time and I wasn’t really sure if I want to try it.
But today… I just wanted something warm and bit energy boosting.
derk wrote exactly what is this about; it is strong in cinnamon, it works well with base tea, I noticed notes of cloves and little of allspice. It is overall enjoyable, but nothing really to return. Maybe prepared in milk it would be bit better? Who knows?
CTC black tea with other unknown ingredients.
My focus was elsewhere when I brewed this Chai to follow lunch. I remember enjoying it but it’s very cinnamon oil forward in taste and smell. Worked great with the base tea, though, and it wasn’t drying like some spice-heavy chai can be.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Spicy, Wood
Much beloved fennel tea, that you can find in nearly every store in Germany. I first tried it at work from another brand and found it wasn’t bad. This one tastes like fennel and licorice. It’s meh. But it’s healthy and really helps to settle an upset stomach. I like the other brand I had a little better. This one is really reasonably priced. I paid less than two Euro. But almost all the tea bags busted on me.
Flavors: Anise, Fennel, Licorice
Received from postcrossing again. Blackberry and pomergranate fruit tea. Interesting combination.
Brewed with boiling water, steeped for 5+ minutes. Watching Lego Movie during drinking.
This tea is as the movie. Colourful (deep red), crazy a bit (taste) and easy drinking (you do not have to think about it). It works quite well together, but hibiscus in is making it bit tart. I certainly notice more blackberry than pomergranate. But there is bit of both. Little sugar can make it wonderful drink for kids. I do not have kids and none were around while drinking it. But overall – it is nice one.
In Monday there is matching day for RedditGifts exchange and there is tea&coffee one. Do you guys take part? I even decided for whole world international. I will hit my head while sending it, but that’s life. Maybe I will get some great teas? Who knows.
Another thing, tomorrow to part-time job again. Inventory check. Quite far, but okay… I hope. So tomorrow only one tea for me.
Another tea from Martin :) I had two envelopes of this caffeine-free Fresh Orange, so I brewed one hot before bed last night and one cold overnight.
Hot was so full of bright, fresh sweet-tart orange flavor. At times I really did feel like I was drinking some freshly pressed valencia orange juice. But then there was also a little bit of that orange vitamin taste which said no, this is tea. And I did not object to that light vitamin taste. Really brilliant aroma and color, too.
Cold-brewed was just ok. There’s some hibiscus, rose hips and acidifier in the blend that give the tea a more noticeable acidity than when brewed hot, and the orange flavor is less pronounced. Regardless, it was a nice palate cleanser to have this morning.
Fresh Orange is a fun caffeine-free tea. I like it a lot and would keep it stocked, especially for summer.
I didn’t have this particular kind. Just regular chamomile and I’m not a fan. It’s week and I don’t like chamomile in general for drinking. I do still want to try a full leaf one to see if it makes a difference. This… not so much. Would only buy to make tea rinses or facial sprays

Strong lemon aroma that gradually subsides, leaving almost only the base black malty tea.
The taste is slightly sour and slightly lemon, with strong malty and earthy notes.
Not bad, but if it comes to lemon teas, I definitely prefer those with peels instead of concentrated juice. They are just more rich and aromatic.
Flavors: Citrus, Earth, Lemon, Malt, Sour
