I received this bag of tea from a tea swap (well it ended up being a tea swap) on reddit. Between the purple wrapper and the fact that my husband got to haul out his rusty German for the translating, I knew this was going to be fun.

These artificial flavors are really taking me back to my childhood lately. This bag smelled like that 80s and 90s grape flavor that was everywhere until manufacturers started realizing that no one but I liked grape flavored things.

Brewing it up, and it’s red. Red red. I’m pretty sure this is an herbal tea from the smell and color, but my first taste pretty much confirms it. Although there is no cranberry in this tea according to what I looked up, I’m pretty sure I’ve just brewed up a cup of hot Ocean Spray unsweetened cranberry juice, complete with the sour dryness on the back of the palate that you get when you drink unsweetened cranberry juice.

Some sugar fixed me right up, and now I’m happily sipping away at my hot cranberry juice. There aren’t a lot of non-caffeinated teas that I like, but this is surprisingly one of them.

Dark red colour.
Aroma dominated by hibiscus with only a bit of orange, quite bland and one dimensional.
Slightly sour in taste, with distinct hibiscus notes and nice ginger spicyness.
Generally not bad for a fruit tea, but it definitely should be called “Hibiscus & Ginger”…

Flavors: Ginger, Hibiscus, Orange Zest, Sour

One bag, in a variety of others, was gifted to me from someone out of my country.
I found it pleasantly aromatic and flavorful. The ginger was not overwhelming at all. I very much enjoyed it and hope I can find more somewhere.

A friend of mine gave me some tea bags to taste it and I loved a lot. Is a light, flavored tea, perfect for a break in the afternoon or a winter breakfast. You can feel both the ginger and the orange. Personally I don’t add any sugar.

Excellent tea. Feels a bit strong for a green tea. I sometimes put a fruit tea bag to the cup and that tastes amazing!

I really loved it. It’s the strongest green tea (after gunpowder) I ever tasted. You can feel both green tea and vanilla flavours, even if the second one is more present as after-taste. I usually drink green tea in the morning or in the afternoon but I tried this one after dinne and everything was perfect :)

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Colour: Honey Coloured
Smell: Very vanilla scented and reminds me of the strong vanilla candles you can burn.

Taste: It has the light, fresh yet slightly bitter taste of green tea but it is very much in the background as the vanilla is powerfully dominating. Pleasingly different but at the same time extremely strong. The vanilla tastes like vanilla pod so it has the thickness of real vanilla (instead of a subtle flavour like synthetic vanilla).

One of the strongest green tea’s that I have tasted, I will drink this mostly as an afternoon tea as I find the vanilla very relaxing while at the same time being strong enough to keep me awake.

A very respectable redbush tea, even more so when you consider it comes from a teabag. The caramel flavour is a nice touch and blends well with the naturally caramel and sweet notes of the redbush.

First noticed it as I walked round my local Lidl and got the tea drinkers urge to give it a go. Glad I did. Now pick up a box every time I go. My staple redbush teabag. Not as nice as loose but as good as I can find, plus it won’t break the bank.

A tasty tweak to redbush.

I didn’t really need tea today, but when I saw this tea in the shop I couldn’t resist picking a pack up.

Firstly there is something endearingly odd about a German tea company being called Lord Nelson, and secondly I love Sikkim – Gangtok is one of my favourite places in the world.

Sadly, I’m not madly impressed by the tea itself. It has a lovely colour, but the taste is a bit generic, and there is a slightly odd bitter aftertaste.

In Europe, you can find this brand at the ubiquitous German LIDL Supermarket chain. That’s probably why the orig poster couldn’t find out about it in English. They definitely love LIDL in Norway!

I like this tea, but I tend to drink every other tea I have first. The vanilla note is very synthetic. I find it has a lot of caffeine for a green tea. It’s good hot or cold.

I got this in a tea swap from a girl who lives in Norway. All the info I Googled came up in a different language and I was unable to get a good translation for it. I’m drinking this now and I like it. Prior to steeping it reminded me of a vanilla scented doll I used to have as a kid…I think it was something from the Strawberry Shortcake Cartoon Series/Themed-time type thing. Either way the scent brought me back to my childhood. The taste has just a hint of Vanilla, not much tho. It’s calming and creative and a nice relaxing cup!
