I didn’t have this particular kind. Just regular chamomile and I’m not a fan. It’s week and I don’t like chamomile in general for drinking. I do still want to try a full leaf one to see if it makes a difference. This… not so much. Would only buy to make tea rinses or facial sprays

drank Green Tea Lemon by Teekanne

Very strong green tea aroma, refreshing and citrusy.
Unfortunately the taste is very watery and bland. There are slight citrusy, spicy and straw notes, but too scarce.

Flavors: Citrus, Lemon, Straw

drank Black Lemon by Teekanne
156 tasting notes

Strong lemon aroma that gradually subsides, leaving almost only the base black malty tea.
The taste is slightly sour and slightly lemon, with strong malty and earthy notes.

Not bad, but if it comes to lemon teas, I definitely prefer those with peels instead of concentrated juice. They are just more rich and aromatic.

Flavors: Citrus, Earth, Lemon, Malt, Sour

I am normally not much of a teabag person, but sometimes you gotta make some sacrifices… I wanted to have a tea on the go that I could brew and sip during classes/breaks and loose leaf just isn’t as quick and practical. So I decided to grab this cheap-ish box from the store and hope for the best.

First, the smell. It smells very strongly of the same artificial perfume-y cherry blossom flavoring that seems omnipresent in many Japanese snacks, candy and drinks during the Hanami season. So while it definitely reminds me of Japan, it was not exactly in the way I’d hoped. I usually don’t mind the taste but in this case there is just too much of it, even when brewed with twice the recommended amount of water (200ml/teabag). It tastes exactly how it smells, although the maltodextrin (sweetener) in this tea gives off a nauseous end note that lingers in your mouth for a surprisingly long amount of time. I haven’t tasted any cherry or tea notes either, which leaves this blend really flat tasting and one-dimensional.

Speaking of which, the tea (aka. the dust) itself wasn’t the absolute worst there could have been. Well, probably. It barely tasted like anything so I am unable to comment on it. The flavorings are overpowering any other nuance that could have even slightly redeemed this tea, and the sickeningly sweetness of the maltodextrin present in the blend unpleasantly reminds you hours after drinking that buying this tea was a horrible mistake.

I will, however, still finish the box. I mean, it’s not so revolting that I had to throw it out on the spot, hence why it got such a high rating, but still vile enough that I will be sure to never buy this again. I’m sure some people who really like the Japanese cherry blossom flavoring could still like it somewhat. With milk, it tastes similarly to a less watery KOCHAKADEN Cherry Royal Milk Tea with less emphasis on the cherry and I found it more bearable that way.

drank Winterzeit by Teekanne
61 tasting notes

Not rating this one, since how you can rate Christmas?

Steeped 2 minutes and the taste is very strong. It is mostly bitter citrus and clove, with just a bit of cinnamon bark. I appreciate that since American holiday flavors get so heavy on the cinnamon. The hibiscus and elderberry just serve to add a little additional tang. This would be rich and delicious sweetened – even if that makes it a bit too much for an everyday drink.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Citrus, Clove, Lemon

Preparation

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.

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.

Very strong aroma with a lot of mango, slight lemon and subtle white tea notes in the background.
