drank Zen Chai by Teekanne
2807 tasting notes

Wow, I can actually smell the “exotic cactus” – it’s like a cross between peach a cucumber. Weird!

it’s there is the taste too – a surprising sweet, juicy flavor with a clean green tea aftertaste. not bad for bagged! it is waking up my taste buds, and maybe my brain too. It’s going to take a lot to get me through to the end of the work day and week!

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

A chai w/ catcus? Oh must get this one:)

tastes “herbal” to me – can’t pick out much. A chamomile base, a hint of licorice/anise (but not enough to put me off). It’s ok. Really I just wanted an herbal tea after a night of overindulging. Since it was German food, I reached for one of my German teabags from a int’l swap.

drank 8 Herbs Tea by Teekanne
2807 tasting notes

can’t find what the 8 herbs are, no info online…. I tasted predominately licorice/mint when hot, then some ginger as it cooled. I don’t normally like licorice but this was well blended and I wanted something herbal to soothe an upset tummy. Seems to have worked!

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 5 min, 0 sec

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.

drank Peppermint by Teekanne

Love how strong each bag is. Also love the flexibility of the steep time. Tastes a bit funny though, reminds me a little of cardboard and dried grass.

drank Peppermint by Teekanne
21 tasting notes

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
62 tasting notes

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
62 tasting notes

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
62 tasting notes

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.

drank Spanish Orange by Teekanne
62 tasting notes

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.

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!

drank Winterzeit by Teekanne

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 :)

205 °F / 96 °C 7 min, 0 sec
