Teekanne Cool Sensations Strawberry & Orange Infu­sion

20161119-dsc_1534

While fruit infu­sions con­tain­ing vari­ous ber­ries that are pre­pared with hot water can often taste overly acid­ic, those pre­pared with tea bags made espe­cially for cold brew tend to res­ult in a more bal­anced and mel­low fla­vour. Teekanne Cool Sensations Strawberry & Orange Infu­sion is one example that fol­lows on from their very enjoy­able Apple & Elderflower Infusion.

Infusing 1 tea bag in 200 ml of cold water for 7 minutes yields a bril­liant red liquor smelling of fruity punch. The sweet fruity notes of fresh and ripe red straw­ber­ries come through in the head before pleas­antly bold but not over­whelm­ing cit­rus notes of sweet and juicy orange with the slight­est acid­ity emerge in the body with hibis­cus under­tones. The straw­ber­ries return in the fin­ish, leav­ing a pleas­ant trop­ic­al punch after­taste. The nat­ur­al sweet­ness of this infu­sion makes it a treat without reach­ing the sweet­ness of fruit soft drinks or tak­ing on the bit­ter after­taste of arti­fi­cially sweetened teas by Healtheries.

This box of Teekanne Cool Sensations Strawberry & Orange Infu­sion con­tained 8 tea bags. It was packed in Germany and pur­chased in Osaka, Japan in 2015.
