Love the smell of this tea. I thought I didn’t like fruit tea, but after this bag it’s growing on me more. Very warm and Christmas-y, not like any fruit tea I’ve had before. Thanks, Martin Bednář, for sending it!

drank Magic Apple by Teekanne
9 tasting notes

This tastes to me like a strong somewhat sour plain red apple flavor. It was a little too fruity for my taste. But, afterward I was actually craving more, so I guess I did like it, haha. A good flavor for fall. Will probably try it again to see if it grows on me.

Flavors: Apple, Apple Skins

Welcome to Steepster. I hope you will enjoy this place. I know this is far from perfect tea, but I will be happy to hear about others as well.

Madeline

Thanks! I’m already obsessed with this site. I sent you an email about the tea you sent me. If you haven’t gotten it, let me know and I’ll send it as a postcrossing/steepster message. Also – you have so many teas!! I’m impressed, haha.

Martin Bednář

Well, most of them are small samples only! But I count them in.

Big bag section, but certainly not that old tea. I remember when they started being sold here, so it could be around 2 years, maybe 3. At maximum!

Anyway, I just put it into hot water, haven’t checked much what is it and what it should be, so it was kind of blind tasting, although I saw the tea bag before preparing.

I saw it is berry flavoured, which sounded nice for the morning.

It was fine. I steeped it somewhere near to recommended 8 minutes in my 300 ml glass cup and was fine. Quite deep red says it includes hibiscus and indeed it does. It wasn’t much generic, I completely noticed raspberries in and indeed it should be raspberry flavoured. Then I noticed tartness which I thought because of hibiscus and rose hips, but apparently it should be with cranberries too, but when I know it now, I think I kinda noticed them, even I thought it is hibiscus.

Overall, it was nice tea for easydrinking. Nothing too fancy, to be honest it was even quite boring — but for restaurant tea, it could be very nice and even for the children. Maybe I am already too big tea snob to enjoy those simple teas?!

Flavors: Cranberry, Raspberry, Tart

You, a tea snob? Tea bags are good.

Martin Bednář

Not always! But yeah, they are sometimes good. I was just surprised I couldn’t enjoy it that much as, I would few years back, probably.

I expected more when I got Fresh Orange from same series. But apparently Fresh Orange is much better and stands off all other teas. This one, is apparently apple flavourred and yes, I have noticed it as pleasantly sour apple pieces, while I rather expected sweet notes of apples. And cinnamon? It is there in flavours as well, but rather like a warming element than anything else. Pretty boring, one-dimensional.

Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

drank Fruit Kiss by Teekanne
737 tasting notes

There was a a Teekanne gift assortment in my family cupboard and today I wasn’t really into experiments. Mreover, I had that cool tea from Pfanner, so I decided to brew something simple. Ugh.

Not a fan of this blend. Strong artificial cherries and little of strawberries. In aroma. Taste was really off, rather mostly hibiscus — tart. I miss some creamy notes! Strawberries were non present here as well. And it was as well somehow sweet, kind of stevia sweetness? (It’s not there!)

Blah.

Flavors: Artificial, Cherry, Tart

This is my favourite fruit tea, and of course, from Teekanne.

Why I like it?
It’s very floral and if you like elderflower, you bet it is there. And that refreshing lemon notes!

Okay, I don’t know much what to write about this tea. It is very floral and juicy and refreshing lemon. Nice to drink anytime.

Sounds nice. I wish I could easily buy Teekanne and coop teabags.

Martin Bednář

I wish for coop as well! Maybe I will buy a box, dismantle it, put into envelope and send you some Teekanne stuff to you :D

But after this crisis, at the earliest.

drank Spanish Orange by Teekanne
107 tasting notes

This tea is ok. Has a decent orange flavor. Thought I would try it cold, didn’t really like it, it tasted like the strange chalky flavor that vitamins sometimes have- the chewable kind. So in conclusion, it’s better got/want. It’s ok.

Flavors: Orange

Prepared this tea today morning. I could not recall brewing it before, but I am pretty sure I did.

Anyway, to be honest, I was afraid it will be very artificial and tart. It is the second – tart. But it is black currant, so of course I expected it and I was prepared for it.

It was really juicy as well! So, taste is clearly black currant juice with refreshing aftertaste as lemon. It wasn’t artificial at all, though no black currant in? It was even quite mouth-watering, so this will be a cup for summer too I think. Enjoayble and simple :)

Flavors: Black Currant, Lemon, Tart

drank Wild Berry by Teekanne

Generic fruit tea. Hints of strawberry and raspberry, tartness from hibiscus.

Yeah, I would like write more about this tea, but there is nothing to write about. Maybe it will be good iced or cold brewed.

drank Chai by Teekanne

This one was resting in cupboard for long time and I wasn’t really sure if I want to try it.

But today… I just wanted something warm and bit energy boosting.

derk wrote exactly what is this about; it is strong in cinnamon, it works well with base tea, I noticed notes of cloves and little of allspice. It is overall enjoyable, but nothing really to return. Maybe prepared in milk it would be bit better? Who knows?

CTC black tea with other unknown ingredients.

My focus was elsewhere when I brewed this Chai to follow lunch. I remember enjoying it but it’s very cinnamon oil forward in taste and smell. Worked great with the base tea, though, and it wasn’t drying like some spice-heavy chai can be.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Spicy, Wood

Ingredients are following: Black tea 29%, cinnamon 24%, chicory root, ginger, cardamom, natural aroma, blackberry leaves, cinnamon aroma, star anise, black pepper.

Ah, thanks

I wasn’t sure if I have a box from it and surprisngly I found it :)

drank Fennel by Teekanne
107 tasting notes

Much beloved fennel tea, that you can find in nearly every store in Germany. I first tried it at work from another brand and found it wasn’t bad. This one tastes like fennel and licorice. It’s meh. But it’s healthy and really helps to settle an upset stomach. I like the other brand I had a little better. This one is really reasonably priced. I paid less than two Euro. But almost all the tea bags busted on me.

Flavors: Anise, Fennel, Licorice

Preparation
1 tsp

Hmm.
Received from postcrossing again. Blackberry and pomergranate fruit tea. Interesting combination.

Brewed with boiling water, steeped for 5+ minutes. Watching Lego Movie during drinking.

This tea is as the movie. Colourful (deep red), crazy a bit (taste) and easy drinking (you do not have to think about it). It works quite well together, but hibiscus in is making it bit tart. I certainly notice more blackberry than pomergranate. But there is bit of both. Little sugar can make it wonderful drink for kids. I do not have kids and none were around while drinking it. But overall – it is nice one.

In Monday there is matching day for RedditGifts exchange and there is tea&coffee one. Do you guys take part? I even decided for whole world international. I will hit my head while sending it, but that’s life. Maybe I will get some great teas? Who knows.

Another thing, tomorrow to part-time job again. Inventory check. Quite far, but okay… I hope. So tomorrow only one tea for me.

Flavors: Blackberry

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

I saw the RedditGifts Exchange. I’ve always been curious about them. Unfortunately with me having just bought a condo, I don’t have any tea budget so I can’t participate in something like that right now.

Martin Bednář

Matching was yesterday evening (here); I got someone in Canada, usually drinking sweet iced teas. Gonna send some fruit ones.

drank Fresh Orange by Teekanne
712 tasting notes

Another tea from Martin :) I had two envelopes of this caffeine-free Fresh Orange, so I brewed one hot before bed last night and one cold overnight.

Hot was so full of bright, fresh sweet-tart orange flavor. At times I really did feel like I was drinking some freshly pressed valencia orange juice. But then there was also a little bit of that orange vitamin taste which said no, this is tea. And I did not object to that light vitamin taste. Really brilliant aroma and color, too.

Cold-brewed was just ok. There’s some hibiscus, rose hips and acidifier in the blend that give the tea a more noticeable acidity than when brewed hot, and the orange flavor is less pronounced. Regardless, it was a nice palate cleanser to have this morning.

Fresh Orange is a fun caffeine-free tea. I like it a lot and would keep it stocked, especially for summer.

Preparation
0 OZ / 0 ML
Martin Bednář

Aww, yeah – this is a tea we keep on stocked all year long as it is really wonderful caffeine-free tea great for evenings.

Amazon has a large selection of Teekanne. I may have to try a few others. Do you have any recommendations?

Martin Bednář

Hmm, trying to recall some. Garden selection was pretty nice, as well Magic moments or Winter time.

But I can´t remember those so much as this one.

derk

Thanks!

derk

Martin, I finally got through all the teas from your end of the swap! You said this round of Fresh Orange you sent was newer. It seemed much “red” fruitier and less orange than the older stuff I tried in this note, but still with some vitamin taste. I enjoyed it iced with my lunch today. Thanks so much for swapping overseas TWICE!

Martin Bednář

Interesting. The blend should be same. At least they claim! Of course I did not a deep check of contents of tea bag. Maybe it was just older or something. Who knows?

I will be happy to make even third swap… but bit later I guess. Exam period starts TODAY (internal screaming), in two hours. I am happy that you liked all the teas I sent first even second time. And that you liked our family daily-drinker :D

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
