Country Teas: The Taste Journey Around the World
Our country teas take you with fascinating and seductive flavors in the tea traditions of different countries and continents. From the vastness of North Africa to the urban lifestyle of New York to the unspoiled nature of a Swedish fjord, you will experience the different pleasures. Close your eyes and go on an incomparable journey of taste with your tea cup.
Country Teas From Europe
Your country tea journey begins with a trip through Europe, from rustic Scandinavia to the warm south of the continent. You can start with a short trip to Sweden, sweetened by fruity Swedish blueberries. This tea is perfect for quiet relaxation and radiates peace and harmony.
Sweet cherries and limes can be found in abundance in Italy. So it’s only natural that we’ve been inspired by these fruits for your next stop on your country tea journey. While the sweet cherry stands for plump, deep red passion and the famous Italian “la dolce vita”, the yellow freshness of the lime with a light honey note is a tribute to the sunny summers in “Bella Italia”.
What do you get when you mix red and yellow? That’s right – orange. Fruit and color also exude southern charm and joie de vivre in the form of tea. The country teas Spanish Orange and Mediterranean Peach take you to the southern tip of Europe and spoil you with all the flair of sun-drenched fruits and pleasant summer warmth.
TEEKANNE Country Teas – Inspired by Global Tea Culture
Our TEEKANNE country tea journey next takes you to a country just a stone’s throw from Spain. Savor Moroccan Mint as you dream your way to the North African country’s long beaches or Morocco’s bustling markets. Greetings and news are exchanged all around you as spices, fabrics and other goods are hawked and the unique smell of mint hits your nose.
After your short trip to Africa, your journey continues towards the mystical Orient. Discover the facets of Asia’s diverse tea cultures, which have the right taste for every palate. Do you prefer the gentle embrace of Japanese cherry blossom tea or the spicy notes of chai? Sweet varieties such as Persian pomegranate or Turkish apple are also just waiting to be tasted by you. Here, too, the colorful variety of country teas is in the foreground: You’ll find cinnamon in our Asian tea blends as well as a sweet mango note – and both are rounded off, each in its own way, with a sharp pinch of ginger. Share the many delights with family and friends and discover the tart, sweet and spicy notes that caress your nose and palate.
Your Country Teas of the Double Continent
The last stop on our country tea journey is the American double continent. We start with hot rhythms and joie de vivre, which pour fruity-fresh into your teacup or tea glass. You might have guessed it – we’re in Brazil, because lime cuts a wonderful figure in well-known cocktails as well as in tea. The tangy lime flavor in our blend is complemented by a South American specialty, acerola. In combination with a light mint note, the blend unfolds its full potential and creates a unique fruit tea experience. Let your imagination run wild and wish yourself to Copacabana or to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, from where you can overlook the bays of Rio de Janeiro.
At the very end of your trip, head to New York. Chai tea has taken the hearts of the hip and ever-trendy urban population there by storm – and with our Rooibos tea, rounded off with notes of honey, vanilla and lemon, we’ve created our own little monument to it. Near the mouth of the famous Hudson River lies Liberty Island with its only permanent resident – the Statue of Liberty. From the south coast of Manhattan you can always catch an excellent view of the green lady while sipping your chai.
That was your journey with our country teas. Why don’t you start again from the beginning – explore the different stations with TEEKANNE, enjoy your favorite teas and drink your way around the world. We wish you lots of fun!
