Lots of ginger in aroma (which is spicy, citrusy, very warming), lots of turmeric in colour. Taste is quite distinct, spicy, but rather short (except for the lingering ginger spiciness). Only traces of honey flavouring in the back.
It’s not exactly bad, but too one-dimensional for me.

Flavors: Citrusy, Ginger, Spicy

drank Fresh Orange by Teekanne
3235 tasting notes

How lovely! Ashman and I are enjoying having a caffeine free cup each evening together thanks to these teas from Martin!

Once again we have a cup that is full of flavor! It has the tart fruity taste of real freshly squeezed oranges. The hibiscus lends just the right level of tartness. It doesn’t taste like a hibiscus tisane with some orange flavor hiding in it. It tastes like orange flavored tisane. We enjoyed this hot, and I bet it makes a wonderful sweet iced tea in summer.

Thank you, Martin!

I have never tried it iced :D

Wow, this is a blast of orange! Scent and flavour. It’s really quite tasty. I had both teabags steeped hot, but I can imagine this would be lovely chilled. I may try to find this near me it’s so enjoyable. Thanks for a great tea Martin!

drank Earl Grey by Teekanne
1845 tasting notes

Only tea I got to drink this week. Yes, I am on another training and… hotel tea is even worse than last time and I have no intention to try it during breakfast time.
During the training, there is no kettle this time, but hot water dispenser (oh well); and two boxes of tea. One, some fruit tea — read: hibiscus with aromas; and this.

Actually it’s not bad when you hit the steeping time correctly. They recommend 3-5 minutes, but for cups we have available, I found out that two minutes are sufficient.

It’s pretty straightforward with tingling bergamot flavour, which is overpowering tea itself. A hint of cream could smooth it a bit I suppose, but alas, not available as well.

Considering it’s bagged, grocery store basic price level tea, it’s not bad. I had worse EGs which were more expensive. So, in conclusion… it’s fine. Nothing I would look for as a daily-drinker, but when there is nothing else available, moreso with caffeine, it’s fine. If someone offers me this as only tea with caffeine, I would accept.

Caffeine excuses many faults. :)

gmathis

Bet you’re counting the hours till you can have your first cup of at-home tea!

Michelle

I guess I travel so much there is always both caf and herbal tea in my bag. I shudder to think of drinking EG, I might drink gasp coffee before that for caffeine sake. Hope that first cup at home is yummy.

Martin Bednář

Leafhopper you are totally right. I was drinking coffee (well, rather milk with hints of coffee) during my breakfast; but some caffeine intake was needed during the day as well.
gmathis — not really counting the hours but days indded. My first cup of at-home tea was Lahu Forest Oolong and it was wonderful. I reckon mostly because something else.
Michelle, honestly I have no idea why I haven’t brought any tea. I knew there is nothing much available during training (I have been there for two days before). Maybe I would need some tea bags for it convience and I was too lazy to find some.

drank Kaminabend by Teekanne

Sipdown! (27 | 243)

The last swap sample for the night!

This is not my favorite. But I knew that going in, as it’s a marzipan-flavored rooibos, which to me sounds like a terrible combination ha ha. I find I don’t enjoy marzipan and amaretto-flavored teas these days, I just find them overly sweet and cloying, almost like there’s artificial sweetener added. And I feel like that somewhat boozy amaretto-like note also tends to bring out the medicinal quality in rooibos and ends up tasting like cherry cough syrup. That’s pretty much the case here, overall it reminds me of cloyingly sweet cherry medicine. I don’t taste orange, and maybe just a hint of cinnamon.

So obviously not a favorite, ha ha… But I definitely appreciate the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone every now and then, as tastes tend to change over time. :)

TeaTiff TTB #11

What a lovely surprise! I wouldn’t normally reach for an herbal bagged tea, but I decided to give this one a shot based on Martin’s recommendation and I’m so glad I did! The flavor of this one really blew me away. The name is spot-on…it tastes and smells like freshly squeezed orange juice! Super natural and refreshing and I’m guessing it would make an amazing iced tea!

drank Green Tea Opuncia by Teekanne
382 tasting notes

I have a weird soft spot for Teekanne bagged teas. And for opuncia/prickly pear.
The tea surely smells like opuncia, in a fresh, not artificial way. It is fruity and sweety, with some straw green tea character in the background.
And it also tastes decently. there is a balance between the base green tea and opuncia flavouring, the tea is not overdone and it’s really pleasant to drink.
It’s not a double jackpot, but I really like it.

Flavors: Fruity, Prickly Pear, Sweet

drank Brazilian Lime by Teekanne
271 tasting notes

Lime tea is not one you come across everyday but I was excited for this because I love lime. This summer I made the very best lime and raspberry popsicles. I still make them. I also made a lime cheesecake. So I was excited for this tea. It does a great job of capturing the essence of lime. I really do think of fresh lime drinking this yet it still has a tea element. Very nice cold. And also pleasant hot. I like it.

drank Heart Cherry by Teekanne
271 tasting notes

The first couple of cups I drank hot, not good. From then on, I drank the rest of the bags cold. Much more pleasant as a cold tea. I have no idea what a heart cherry is but it does have a cherry flavor and something else a little odd. Not my favorite cold tea, but not bad either. There are better berry teas out there

ashmanra

Alexa says it is a large, heart shaped cherry that is rather soft. But what does she know?

Roxy King

Lol it sounded like something special from the name but from what Alexa says that sounds like a normal cherry

drank Ginger & Orange by Teekanne
271 tasting notes

I think the tea I have is just Ginger Orange, I think the Ginger and Orange is a different tea but I don’t feel like adding it. This is the least Gingery ginger tea of the bunch I have tried from Teekanne. The orange is what hits you, and then you taste a little bit of Ginger. It’s a nice combination. Would be fun to make a cake or something with similar flavor. Probably not anything I will be doing anytime soon though…Overall…nice.

Flavors: Orange

Hadn’t noticed this one in the store before. Its turmeric ginger…probably once of the healthiest teas… turmeric has a wide range of benefits and I think they are tiny bits instead of powder. Good for you and tastes good for you. Not my turmeric drink of choice, I prefer a golden milk with spices. But easy

Flavors: Ginger, Turmeric

drank Ginger-Lemon by Teekanne

Cant really taste the lemon, just the bite of the ginger. Could come in handy when sick or making a hit toddy. Ginger is really good for you and nice to have in a quick and easy tea… although making it with real ginger and lemon is easy to. This is nice when you want tea in literally seconds.

drank Hot love by Teekanne

I sure hope I translated this one right lol its a raspberry vanilla tea that smells like a nice raspberry jam. Don’t get much vanilla and its certainly a little on the bitter side when hot. Ok when cold. Not bad tho

This is for the tea called malve, I think its just hibiscus. I just dont feel like adding another so here we go. Its your regular degular slightly sour, lotta body, hibiscus. If you need hibiscus, it will do! Would only rec. if you need hibiscus.

drank Chamomile fennel by Teekanne
271 tasting notes

More chamomile fennel tea. It seems to be a very popular flavor here in Germany. I think it tastes Identical to the Mesmer tea- going from memory. I don’t like the smell though. I feel like on the nights I drank it, I slept much better though. A good one for upset stomach. Wouldnt recommend drinking for fun but for certain purposes

Flavors: Chamomile, Fennel

drank 8 Herbs Tea by Teekanne

Im still trying to work my way through all of the cheaper brands, got sidetracked a little. Taste like a Mesmer tea. Taste like fennel and other herbs. No distinct flavor and not particularly delicious but good to get sole random herbs in my body.
