Last tea from my Teekanne fruit variety box.
Distinct elderflower aroma with a bit of orange.
Very rich, complex taste, with apple in the front, elderflower more in the back and citrus peels complimenting the mix, with no sourness and only a bit of sweetness. Really decent fruit blend.
Flavors: Apple, Citrus, Elderflower, Orange
Really yummy aroma of orange juice, a bit of essential oils from the peels and rich orange jam background. Everything seems fairly natural.
And the taste is also great. It has some very strong orange juice and orange jam qualities, distinctly sour, slightly tart, almost not sweet.
I like it. A lot. Nice to see something like that from a big company.
Flavors: Citrus, Jam, Orange, Pleasantly Sour, Tart
Fruit pie aroma. Strong, warming, sweet, natural, tempting.
Slightly sour and tart in taste, fortunately only barely sweet, fruity and natural. I like this one. It’s balanced and rich for a cheap bagged tea brand.
Flavors: Cake, Fruity, Pleasantly Sour, Sour, Tart
Strong aroma, at the same time fruity and leafy, complex and fairly natural.
Sourish taste with no sweetness, more citrusy than raspberry (the namesake fruit seems to linger in the background).
Really nice as far for a big company cheap fruit tea.
Flavors: Citrusy, Fruity, Pleasantly Sour, Raspberry, Sour
I continue to stand by my conviction that chamomile is always going to taste like chamomile, so why buy designer jeans to dig in the garden? (My personal preference is bulk loose leaf to mix and match.)
But a bag of Teekanne’s chamomile (I have no idea from where or whence it came) came in handy last night when I was in a dog-tired stupor from a week’s worth of fireworks-induced sleep-terruptions. I paired it with a bag of my beloved Tazo Glazed Lemon Loaf and could feel my neck muscles un-knot as I sipped.
I don’t often feel like drinking rooibos, but suddenly I did and, surprisingly, I wanted a cheap flavoured kind, so here we are. ;)
Very strong vanilla, pastry, honey, fruit pie, warm pie crumble aroma with a bit of bonfire smoke. Not bad at all.
But the taste sensation is not that good. The brew seems very watery, with honey and wet cardboard oxidized flavours in the front and the rooibos character in the back, with vanilla throughout. Passable, but next time I’ll probably use the double amount.
Flavors: Cardboard, Honey, Pastries, Smoke, Vanilla
Sweetish pear and fig aroma. i was afraid that it is dominated by hibiscus but fortunately no. In small part artificial, in larger fairly natural.
Sweet stevia taste, a lot of figs and pears.
Decent overall impression.
Flavors: Fig, Pear, Sweet
Deep red color, typical for hibiscus, not typical for orange and ginger…
And the aroma is also dominated by hibiscus, with orange in the background.
Slightly sour hibiscus taste with solid orange character, a it of ginger spiciness and strong stevia sweetness.
Not quite bad, but too much hibiscus where it wasn’t supposed to be.
Flavors: Ginger, Hibiscus, Orange, Sour, Sweet
Last tea in February 2021, so STATS time!. But first this tea. Another tea from postcrossing.
This tea have wonderful wrapper showing Rialto Bridge in Venice, wonderful glass of cherry-drink.
But this tea is awful.
Really. I think I get the cough syrup notes of you guys. It’s artificial cherry + medicinal background of aroma. Sweet on aroma as well!
And then there is a taste. So sweet. So much stevia in. Why Teekanne, why? Fake, artificial cherry. Hibiscus, written as first => means it should be most prominent ingredient. Maybe it is… but doesn’t deliver any tartness and that lacks here.
Finished half an cup. I don’t like being that negative about teas. But this one gets points only and only for wrapper design.
Let’s hope the stats will make you more happy.

I picked this up thinking it was an herbal tea, its actually a white tea. I tend to avoid actual tea in bagged form. But since I bought it, figured we would review it. Its an ok one. Nice cherry taste, reminds me of a body butter (the scent), it was the wild cherry one From The Body Shop, it tastes the way that smelled if that makes sense. Hint of “tea taste”. Its decent, not a must have but a nice to try one. Im gonna have this last bag with a little sugar.
