As of this writing, Teekanne appears to be marketing this tea under three names, depending on the online or geographic venue: "8 Herbs" via English-language Amazon, and in person at the German-food store I visited in the DFW area, "Mixed Herbs" on their English-language, European-based website, and "8 Kräuter" (German for 8 Herbs) on the German-language Amazon and in some German-food stores in the U.S. All have the same ingredients.

As for the tea itself, the 8 herbs are: rooibos, blackberry leaves, lemon verbena, peppermint, chamomile, fennel, licorice, and cinnamon. Dry-bag and in-cup aromas were very pleasing, albeit mild, with mint and cinnamon standing out. The tea brewed up remarkably dark for a herbal tea, probably because of the presence of rooibos in the ingredients. I could pick out the rooibos in the flavor, but it was far from dominant. Overall this was a very smooth, relaxing, well-balanced herbal blend, not as intense as the color would imply, but not feeble either. I recommend using two bags for big cups and one for standard (smaller) formal-size teacups.

The wet-bag aroma was, uh...different. It was somewhat antiseptic, and also reminded me a little of the smell of postal mucilage. Those of us old enough to have been kids back when stamps sometimes needed glue will recall the glass bowls our parents used at some post offices, containing a tan-colored rubber sponge about the size of a hockey puck, and some wet glue (mucilage). Yes, that stuff. Oh, the memories. Fortunately the wet-bag aroma is the least-important part of assessing tea for me, albeit sometimes the most entertaining. That shouldn't deter anybody from deciding whether to try this one. It's pretty good.
