3 Tasting Notes
This tea brews better than most.. and I’ve tried a lot! I’ve been drinking herbal teas for years and of all the Camomile teas, this brand is the only one that brews strong enough to get the full flavour of the herbs. It also brews clear and darker than any other Camomile tea. I’ve grew up on Bonomelli Camomilla and each sip reminds me of my Nonni (grandparents) and the many evenings of sickness that only Camomile can remedy.
You will never drink north american brand Camomile tea again!
My most favourite herbal tea. It has a comforting aroma because of the warm apples and maintains the lovely bright and crisp flavour of the Camomile. I wouldn’t define it as “fruity”- then again when I think fruity I think berries and citrus not apples.
I love that a cup of this tea just spills with healthiness and I find that these two flavour’s are really complimentary to one another. The apple provides a different kind of sweetness to the Camomile’s already sweet undertones and helps to bring it forward a little further.
I drink mine with about two tea spoons of honey which boosts both the flavour and the medicinal worth of this tea. I’ve also added a tea spoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice which transformed the taste and smell beautifully.
Twinings Camomile and Apple has ruined plain old Camomile tea for me! I dare you to try it :D
My only concern with this tea is that if you wait too long between sips (like more than 40 seconds), the silky coating on your tongue gets complicated and when you do take another sip, you are left feeling a bit dry and tasting a bit bitter. But I think this is due to the secretion of saliva and the effect it produces when it lingers on the sweet taste buds. Altogether, not unpleasant and nothing another few sips can’t cure!
I’m looking forward to seeing what this tea will be like when I re-steep the leaves.. I think this is called “re-infusion”? I’m afraid i’m not terribly well versed in the language of all things tea :) I strongly suggest this tea to tea and non-tea drinkers alike, regardless of green tea preferences.
