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.

I’m going to have to come back to this: after trying the M&S rooibos and vanilla, I think I’d conclude that this one is better.

The perfect berry tea I have tried was Fairmont’s Berry Berry tea, and I have purchased Teekanne’s berry herbal tea variety in the hopes of tasting similar to Fairmont’s but I was very wrong. Even though the ingredients and flavor description is very similar, all the Teekanne’s berry herbal tea variety I have tried turned out way too sour. I do believe they’re healthy. At least they don’t taste artificial and that’s good but really I always have a lot of tea bags left around in my cupboard because I can never finish them all. They do have many more attractive looking berry blends, but I’m afraid to experiment with them with my own money. I will try them if I get them for free from somewhere but I highly doubt I’d purchase with my own money again.

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.

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

drank Peppermint by Teekanne

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.

drank Get Power! by Teekanne

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.

drank Blackcurrant and Apple by Teekanne
62 tasting notes

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.

drank Turkish Apple by Teekanne

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.

drank Red Orange by Teekanne

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.
