This was blended by a neighbor here in Boulder Creek and presented to my daughter-in-law Emily in a re-used glass pudding jar, with no list of ingredients. Emily runs a home bakery and occasionally gets thank-you tips/gifts. She quickly offered it to me as someone more willing to try such things.
I can see and smell chamomile in the dry leaf. I brewed it grandpa-style in a mug, then poured it into a travel mug. As I poured it back, I did so through the lid, filtering out most of the leaf in the process. Back and forth again, and it was a drinkable temperature. I prefer to drink plain tea at 51 C / 124 F, or about 53 C / 127 F with milk.
This blend is very licorice-forward. I wonder if it has anise and/or fennel, but I definitely taste some sweet licorice root in there. The chamomile flavor comes in at the end of the sip. I can still taste licorice well after a sip. It’s overall pretty nice, and probably good for an evening herbal brew. I’ll have to ask which neighbor made this.
Flavors: Chamomile, Licorice, Licorice Root
