drank Chamomile Lavender by Teas Etc
314 tasting notes

Have a bit of insomnia so I’m trying out this tea.

It’s what you’d expect from chamomile and lavender. The chamomile is apple-y and the lavender is herbally pungent—I’m reminded very strongly of rosemary chicken!

The two flavors are very distinct and very potent. I feel like I’m drinking a fresh bowl of potpourri! Like a lavender sachet. But I mean this in a good way—it’s not a stale, icky, dusty bowl of potpourri. It’s potpourri that’s been freshly picked and a bit sundried.

I may have brewed this too strong—2 heaping teaspoons in 12oz. with boiling water. My mug is practically filled with the tea/herbs.

(would you like some water with your herbs?)

I think I’m babbling now—must’ve kicked in!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Rosemary chicken is yum! Interesting association with lavendar.

Yeah, I know. Must be the herbal-ness of it. Lavender can remind me of rosemary, a lot of times

Now I’m thinking about rosemary chicken. Now I want rosemary chicken. Just a little piece, cold, picked from the container in the refrigerator. Except there is no rosemary chicken in the refrigerator. =(

My ratings are purely subjective and each note varies according to my perception and mood at the moment. So, with that said, my rating scale can be deciphered as follows:
90-100: I am in love! A must have at all times! :D
80-89: This is good. It is full-tin worthy! :))
79-70: This is okay. Glad I tried it. Might get more. :)
69-60: Meh. I’m indifferent. Neither here nor there, this is Tea Purgatory. :/
59-under: Mediocre and Sad. Really not good enough to try again. A disappointment. :(

My Misc. Personal Favorites List (because I love making lists!):
Books = The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, Beauty by Sherri S. Tepper, The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, Personal Darkness by Tanith Lee.
Movies = E.T., The Princess Bride, Babette’s Feast, Enchanted April, The Age of Innocence, Death Becomes Her, GATTACA, Fight Club, The Matrix, The Others, Pride and Prejudice (2005 version), Nacho Libre :).
TV Shows = The Twilight Zone (a classic!), Star Trek TNG, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I miss this!), Mad Men, Sherlock, Being Human.
Music? = I find myself perennially stuck in an 80’s-90’s New Wave & Alternative time warp. ;)
Quote of the Day: “There really isn’t anything; only the story appearing now—and not even that.”
