Awful, awful fake aroma…like tasting a soap.
I cannot recall how I received two bags of this tea but I imagine it was through one swap or another. This will be my last cup before retreating for the night to carry on reading Mad Mouse by Chris Grabenstein.
It smells sweet with strong licorice and cinnamon essences.
Flavour wise this is thickly licorice and it leaves that refreshing feeling in my mouth as I sip. The anise is also rather strong mixed with the cinnamon and in the after taste the Rooibos is noticeable. It’s an unusual blend and I don’t think I’m going to be able to finish this cup. My husband is also not a fan.
Sweet smell, sweet taste. I suggest to add two tea spoons of sugar. Minimal steeping time is about two minutes, but I like to let it steep a few minutes longer.
My all time favourite. Good for autumn/winter evening with a blanket and a book. Really sweet by itself, but two or three tea spoon of sugar do no harm.
Everyday tea, bought in Pão de Açúcar (São Paulo)
Strange tea. After 2 years of tea experience I never tried something like this. It’s good for a tea bag. And I would love to have this tea in whole leaf.
Perfect choice for summer nights or after lunch. It’s very balanced,nothing stands out, but it makes you feel so comfortable ——helps cooling your mind and make a little contribution to digesting .I like herbal scents, and it tastes even more lovely when brewed with some freshly cut summer fruits XD
What kind of an Indian restaurant has only Lipton and German-brand Peppermint? So weird! They looked at me like I was crazy when I ordered hot tea.
As for the tea itself, it was pretty typical bagged peppermint. Not as great a fresh-picked mint, but I’ve had much staler, dull tasting mints.
Ugh. This is just bad bad bad. It smells and tastes overwhelmingly of fake strawberry flavor. The lemongrass doesn’t come through at all and what small green tea flavor peeks out is of poor quality. I barely choked this down. I would have poured it out but didn’t want to waste the caffeine.
This is great. Love how strong each bag is. Also love the flexibility of the steep time.
The ass-kicker of all peppermint teas, and one of those longest in production. This tea has been around long before World Wars and our grandparents. Its a moroccan style mint tea— in other words it can be brewed as strong as coffee and sweetened to the point that it would keep any dentist in business.
You may opt to brew it long or short, and its mintiness will expand or dimish accordingly. I generally find one tea bag strong enough to make a full liter of tea.
Medicinally-speaking this tea is wonderful for an upset stomach and will even mildly numb a toothache, there’s that much peppermint oil in the infusion. I use it as an oncoming cold remedy, and even herbalist medicine says ‘it works!’
Not bad for a tea that combines lemongrass with mint. I expected it wouldn’t be very good, because it seems so easy for lemongrass teas to go wrong, and mint teas often taste pretty bad. The use of spearmint keeps it fresh, and the lemony flavours keep it from tasting too leafy. Light, fresh, upbeat.
This tastes slightly better than the average peppermint tea, but it basically tastes like every other peppermint tea—not that good. It also has a gross soapy element at the end of the mouthful. No wonder I’ve drnk barely any of this box of tea.
Fora supermarket quality herbal tea, this is unexpectedly delicious! Maybe I just like it so much because when I was growing up, I drank a lot of blackcurrant and apple juice, and Ribena. I don’t know, but it tastes really good to me. It’s a lot like what you’d probably expect less sweet, hot apple and blackcurrant juice to taste like. That maybe doesn’t sound so good, but this is yummy.
Hmm, I don’t think very much of this. The tea has a weird aftertaste and the apple flavour is just too full-on or something. It’s really acidic and has this subtle element in the flavour that tastes somehow vaguely ashy to me. I wouldn’t get it again.
Not that much going on flavour-wise, but perhaps a little bit more dimensional than Teekanne’s Spanish Orange, especially at the end of the mouthful. It’s very sour (even with sweetener), and as you might anticipate if you’ve had oranges and blood oranges before, the flavour is less obviously orange-y.
As with a lot of other herbal teas, the flavour of this is kind of one dimensional. It has a nice acidic tang at the end of the mouthful, and in general kind of just tastes like orange cordial.
As I said for “Sternenmarkt” (Teekanne) I love seasonly teas, this is very strong, I tasted it with Denmark butter cookies and even if I found it a little hard to finish, it kept me a good company during cold days :)
I love seasonal teas, I added just a teaspoon of honey to sweeten a little bit, but it was perfect with gingerbread bisctuits :) Thanks to Eva for sending me this lovely tea from Germany!
