This simple chamomile blend from Numi offers a slight variation on the usual themes. There are many chamomile soliflore tisanes, the quality of which obviously depends solely on the integrity of the chamomile used. Nothing is being blended, and only one ingredient has been selected: chamomile.
At the other end of the spectrum lie the many loud bells & whistle chamomile blends, which often boast ingredients such as lemon grass, hibiscus, rose hips, and just about everything else under the sun. In such complicated blends, the chamomile can get lost in the noise.
Numi Chamomile Lemon offers a compromise between the two approaches. Not quite a soliflore, but not very complicated, as the only ingredient beyond high-quality chamomile is lemon myrtle, which has a flavor entirely distinct from that of lemon or lemon grass. I recalled my first experience with Numi Lemon Maté while drinking Chamomile Lemon, and upon examining the ingredients, I discovered that lemon myrtle figures big in that blend as well.
Based on those two cases, it seems pretty clear that I (unlike some) really do enjoy the flavor of lemon myrtle! This filter bag is rather good, but I’d like to try this tea in loose leaf format.
