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

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 2 g 8 OZ / 250 ML

drank Fresh Orange by Teekanne
319 tasting notes

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

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec 2 g 8 OZ / 250 ML

I enjoyed Fresh Orange, too.

I shall try others from Teekanne too, but as I don’t drink much fruit teas recently…

And sending them to derk to try them as well, haha!

drank Cherry Berry by Teekanne

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.

drank Raspberry by Teekanne
319 tasting notes

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.

Leafhopper

We had fireworks here throughout the Canada Day weekend, with accompanying sleep-terruptions. (Who thinks it’s fun to set off fireworks at 2:30 A.M.?) I hope you sleep better this week!

I think the neighborhood kids’ supply has finally fizzled out—that or I was so tired I slept through last night’s round. (Little village municipal ordinance that allows ’em is about to expire, so maybe…)

ashmanra

Apparently we are surrounded by people who can afford the really big stuff….there have been fireworks for days and it lasted until after midnight on the Fourth! Thankfully, Sam the King of Dogs does not even seem to notice fireworks. I am tired of being awakened by them, though.

Leafhopper

I guess people want to celebrate this year, which is understandable. (Just not in the middle of the night!)

Ashmanra, I’m glad your dog isn’t bothered by the fireworks. My friend’s dog gets really upset.

drank Rooibos Vanilla by Teekanne
319 tasting notes

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

drank Love Pear-Fig by Teekanne
319 tasting notes

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.

drank Ginger & Orange by Teekanne
319 tasting notes

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

drank Italian Lemon by Teekanne

It is twins with the Mesmer version. It was nice sometimes but sometimes it reminded me of a cleaner scent. IDK, hard to explain but most times I did like it.

drank Sage by Teekanne

Well… it tastes like the Mesmer one. Its… medicinal like Rosemary, Eucalyptus. Im sure its healthy for you, but not the best tasting. Eh

drank Roasted Apple by Teekanne
162 tasting notes

I didnt buy this one but I did drink it up since it seemed no one really liked it. It tastes like a spicy bready apple dessert but not in a good way. I tend to rarely like holiday, spice teas…and this was no exception.

drank Thai ginger mango by Teekanne

The smell! It smells like it should he in candle form. It has a sharp gingery taste and a nice fruity mango flavor as well. The ginger might be stronger but overall its nice. If you like ginger and fruity flsvors this might be one to try

Flavors: Ginger, Mango

drank Apple by Teekanne

Eh… its an ok apple tea. I am forever looking for that amazing apple tea from Turkey but this does not compare. Rather have an apple or apple juice.

Martin Bednář

I really liked Apple tea from Janat Paris… but not sure what are you actually looking for :)

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.

White Antlers

One day at a time, Martin. Stay in the moment.

Maddy Barone

I like the way you break down your tea statistics. That italian tea certainly does not soud like one I would enjoy. Although since my grandparents were born and grew up in Italy I am always anxious to try anything Italian. Still, this one sounds like a hard pass.

ashmanra

Very impressive records of your sip downs, Martin!

Every day you are a step closer to your goals! School and otherwise!

Martin Bednář

I know, I know White Antlers.
Maddy: Thank you. I like it being simple, but still interesting. Of course I could for example watch the changes between months, but why?
ashmanra: I was mostly finishing the small amount of teas I had saved for last sessions. It’s hard to say good bye to some teas, but it feels good to have it done and having less and less teas every single cup. “School and otherwise” is so right I am trying!

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.

Flavors: Cherry
