Teekanne seems to revel in fruity herbals, based on their variety of offerings in this arena; however, as of this writing, I can't find this specific blend on their company site. Instead you'll see it in German food stores (where I got it) and online (Amazon, GermanDeli, etc.).

As with the other Teekanne fruit tea I've tried so far, the aroma was almost absent in-bag and in water, but the taste was not weak at all. Curiously, the poured color changed during steeping from a slatey gray-green to a deep, maroon-brown tone. The base concoction is a fairly pleasantly flavored, sweet, suitably fruity blend of many of the same ingredients in their pomegranate-flavored tea I already reviewed, but without the pomegranate flavor. It contains hibiscus, rosehip, apple, orange peel, berry flavor, bilberries, blackcurrant, and elderberries, rendering a brew that reminds me of "a nice Hawaiian Punch". As with the others, it should make a decent iced beverage or fairly safe intro to herbal teas for kids.

However, I definitely noticed the flavor of the added vitamins, and I don't think it was just the power of suggestion. It tasted like a nice fruit tea but with the faintly rubbery or metallic taste of about half a crushed-up Flintstones multivitamin stirred in. Those who nibbled down a fair share of chewable vitamins as a kid will know what I mean. My question about this tea is: what proportion of the stated vitamin dosage actually brews out into the water? Or put another way: Is the labeled amount of each vitamin valid for the dry tea or a brew of some particular duration? Long steeping times almost surely will max out that potential.

Perhaps the best use of this tea is to get some vitamins into a kid (or adult) who likes to drink fruity beverages, but who doesn't like (or can't have) the big loads of sugar so common to the latter. They use vitamin C, niacin, vitamin E, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin B2, vitamin B1, folic acid, biotin, and vitamin B12.
