drank Winterzeit by Teekanne

I love this tea! Now, I have to admit I’m totally biased – this tea means Christmas to me from early childhood. My father loves this tea and mum would always make it for him during winter. When I smelled this tea, I knew Christmas was coming.
It smells really good and the taste is very Christmas-like – it’s almost like a punch but with a twist. I would recommend to drink this tea sweetened – it’s meant to be a winter treat, after all.

drank Mint with lemon by Teekanne

I do love mint tea and this is actually my go-to mint tea when I run out of my homemade supplies :) Lemon changes the taste of this tea only very slightly and I noticed no difference in smell from pure mint tea.

Flavors: Mint

drank White Tea Citrus by Teekanne

Very strong aroma with a lot of mango, slight lemon and subtle white tea notes in the background.
Slightly sweet, very fruity taste, with dominance of mango and only subtle lemon. Very slight white tea bitterness in the aftertaste.
Refreshing and nice. Especially good as a cold brew on a hot sunny day.

Flavors: Grass, Lemon, Mango

Strong malty and earthy aroma.
Very malty and a bit earthy in taste, quite rich, a bit astringent.
Not bad for a mass produced tea, yet nothing spectacular.

drank Moroccan Mint by Teekanne
41 tasting notes

Surprisingly nice! The flavours are subtle and combine smoothly leaving your palate very refreshed. Some teas can overdo it with the mint flavour but this blend has delicate hints that are enjoyable to taste. I think this is largely because I steeped the sachet for 3-4 minutes. Any longer could risk the mint becoming too overpowering to appreciate.

Flavors: Floral, Mint, Peppermint

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec 3 g 11 OZ / 330 ML

This is currently my favorite tea. It has an amazing mint flavor that is incredibly bold without seeming overpowering or harsh. This is a current nighttime staple for me.

Flavors: Mint, Peppermint, Spearmint

The vanilla flavor is light on the rooibos tea. It’s a great, value-for-money tea for daily pleasure, hot or iced.

drank Sweet Temptation by Teekanne

Incredibly sweet and sour all in one. Smells absolutely delicious, definitely a ‘sweet temptation’. Although a nice tea, it is a bit too sour for my taste.

drank Heiße Liebe by Teekanne
17 tasting notes

A unique tea that tastes a lot like a raspberry cheesecake, with flavours of raspberry and vanilla. Unfortunately the aftertaste is quite sour which makes the tea less enjoyable for me, although you could tend to this by sweetening it. All in all, a nice tea to accompany a sweet treat.

Not the most impressive chai out there, but definitely delicious. Tad better than Twinings’ Indian Chai, not as good as Horniman’s Chai Té. Infinitely improved by a dash of cinnamon and a splash of boiled milk.

Flavors: Cinnamon

drank My Time by Teekanne
47 tasting notes

It’s not…. unpleasant. It definitely isn’t. That being said, it’s partly because the tea is so weak I can’t taste anything. I like the liquorice aftertaste, but other than that, it tastes like water. I think I’d enjoy it if I could taste it though.

drank Gold Teefix by Teekanne

How i got it: Got a bag from my parents’ house

Experience: This seemed to me like a worthy candidate for the everyday category, and i think i wasn’t mistaken. Intense classic Ceylon aroma, and an equally intense flavor, maybe at the level of Lipton’s Royal Ceylon or Dilmah’s Supreme Ceylon. The only detail that takes points away from this tea is that it feels sometimes a bit plain to the taste. Just a bit more of richness could make it much better. That said, i have a fairly fine tea here. Oh, it have some astringency too, nothing unpleasant. Very good.

Would i buy it?: To the date, this is the closest match for my everyday Yellow Label. The possibility is clearly open.

drank Happy Moods by Teekanne
10 tasting notes

I got Teekanne’s Happy Moods when I bought a box with samples of the different kinds of tea in the “Body and Soul” line.

The teabag package reads “Enlivening Herbal Tea Blend with Green Tea” and some of the ingredients are Ginger, Lemongrass and Cardamon. You could guess I was very excited to sip some of iit.
Later today, I tried it, following all the steeping instructions and I sweetened it a little (against my usual rule of not doing so) I could never expect the results.

At the beginning the spicy notes didn’t show up to fulfill your expectations and make you think you’re drinking a bland , overpriced green tea, but then you swallow and just when you are about to be disappointed, Ginger and Cardamon make their entrance and suddenly there’s a spice party in your tongue.

I might be a little biased, since I love spicy teas so much, but believe me when I say this tea in particular is very good for those cold autumn/winter evenings. It puts you in the mood to keep working for the rest of the day. Enlivening, indeed!

Flavors: Cardamon, Ginger, Green Apple, Lemongrass

Based on the amount of tea and your perception, would you classify it as a flavoured tea or a tisane?

Devilish

Thanks for the very kind comment, Posy! Let’s drink more tea! :D

Posy

@ Chris: Oh, it’s definetely flavoured tea. Tisanes are usually decaf. Also, you can sense the flavors of green tea, though it’s faint. It’s still there, nevertheless.

@ Devilish You’re very welcome, friend. Tea for everybody!

This is the one tea that made me realize green teas are actually good! Perfect taste and scent. You will for sure be able to smell cacti, the ‘greeniness’. Conclusion: it is a great tea for quite a favourable price.

So fruity and juicy and tart! The ruby liquor is gorgeous, and the smell is warm and inviting. I like this with a bit of maguey sap and a tiny little dusting of cinnamon.
