drank Fresh Orange by Teekanne
742 tasting notes

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.

Aww, yeah – this is a tea we keep on stocked all year long as it is really wonderful caffeine-free tea great for evenings.

Amazon has a large selection of Teekanne. I may have to try a few others. Do you have any recommendations?

Martin Bednář

Hmm, trying to recall some. Garden selection was pretty nice, as well Magic moments or Winter time.

But I can´t remember those so much as this one.

Thanks!

Martin, I finally got through all the teas from your end of the swap! You said this round of Fresh Orange you sent was newer. It seemed much “red” fruitier and less orange than the older stuff I tried in this note, but still with some vitamin taste. I enjoyed it iced with my lunch today. Thanks so much for swapping overseas TWICE!

Martin Bednář

Interesting. The blend should be same. At least they claim! Of course I did not a deep check of contents of tea bag. Maybe it was just older or something. Who knows?

I will be happy to make even third swap… but bit later I guess. Exam period starts TODAY (internal screaming), in two hours. I am happy that you liked all the teas I sent first even second time. And that you liked our family daily-drinker :D
