Sipdown (814)!

This was an alright tea – pretty easy drinking and smooth, though I found the flavour a bit flat/stale and uninteresting. I picked up on notes of apple and cinnamon, though both were subtler, allowing for more of the natural flavour of the black tea to come through. It’s just a shame that the black tea flavour wasn’t really anything exceptional.

Thanks for the share, Kittenna!

I liked the apple in this one; base tea definitely unremarkable.

Advent day 17. I’m really glad they number their teas and that the numbers translate from German to English because all of the pouches in this advent calendar are printed in German which makes the teas difficult to look up without the number system.
I get a dusty fruity green in this cup. I can’t identify the fruit as citrus, but I think the mate gives it a dusty flavored note. I like this better than yesterday’s sencha, but I’m not finding anything unique about it compared to other fruity greens.

Cold Brew Sipdown (611)!

I’m pleasantly surprised by this blend! I’ve had a small handful of other blends from TeaGschwendner lately and none of them have really been bad but a lot of them have been really quite average/mediocre. There’s something quite lovely about this one though! It feels a little more well rounded than some of the others I’ve had as of late, with more “body” to the fruity profile. Seabuckthorn and ginger notes are present, but what’s really catching my attention and holding it is this really lovely sweet, beautiful orange note. It’s like popping a slice of fresh, ripe orange right into my mouth! All with a nice, clean finish.

Really refreshing, and I’m very glad I made a whole pitcher of it because I’m deeply enjoying it!

Ugh. I really like this one, and feel like I should make a TeaGschwendner order, since it’s the second tea I’ve rather enjoyed… Creamy apple goodness.

Had a bit of difficulty translating this tea… hopefully I haven’t duplicated an entry! Anyhow, this tea came to me via visitors from Germany, a few years ago. I believe I had two sample pouches of it, but apparently didn’t write a note about the first one.

This tea is actually really tasty! It’s a nice creamy green apple sort of flavour, without being too fakey. Base is nice, too. I could actually tell what it was even before looking it up, because it’s pretty distinctive. I’d love to have this again; my sample has enough for one more cup, which I’ll have to make sure I enjoy in the near future so it doesn’t go stale! (The best before date on the tea was in 2016, haha).

I haven’t had too many (or any other?) TeeGschwendner teas, but based on this, I’m certainly intrigued!

Also, of interest – the name of this tea translates to Osnabrucker hobbyhorse, haha. Maybe someone with a German background can clarify a little (although I believe there is actually a picture of a hobbyhorse on the package!)

Great for the evening, as rooibos contains no caffeine. Sweet enough on its own that it helps with cravings.
A bit too strongly flavoured, but that can be remedied by lowering the dosage.

I still got some old stock, but this is the best bergamot flavored rooibos I have been drinking… And I have tried some… Natural taste.

A beautiful blend of spices that enhance each other and offer a rich and stimulating palatal experience. For anyone yearning for Christmas time or simply wanting a sweet-but-not-too-sickeningly-sweet tea when there’s no actual gingerbread around.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Honey, Spices, Sweet

Absolutely delicious – truly warms you from the inside. It has a light flavour of traditional black tea but the spices are more dominant. Spicy, almost tart and a mixture of the spirit of late autumn and early winter in a cup.

Flavors: Spices, Sweet, Tart
