is one of the best chamomiles other than in my yard .. lol but I use these flower buds whenever i had an abscess from infected tooth to heal the abscess.
steep for couple minutes and take pinch of hot chamomile and place on abscess
for about 45 minutes 3x per day .. for two weeks even if swelling disapates .. :)
My first attempt at this was an utter and dismal failure, I was almost ready to agree with everyone else, the tea was overpowering, too strong, and just didn’t taste very good with instructions on the container.
I looked up some sites on brewing loose leaf tea and decided to try it a little different. First instead of using a full teaspoon, I put just enough to cover half the bottom of my little styrofoam cups. I know that’s not an exact measurement, but, because this tea has lots of chunks of apple and such, you could probably translate it to a light teaspoon, just be a little less eager to get a huge amount. Second, instead of boiling water, I had hot water and let it cool for just a minute or two and then steeped for about six minutes. I shall do more science in the future so that I can get exact temperatures and such, but, doing it this way produces a very delicious cup of tea and is not near as overpowering as my first taste.
Love the smell of this. Very simple, tart, and kinda sweet. Very good for when you are in a prime colors sorta mood.
The Bai Mu Dan is strong with this one.
//bad Star Wars reference.//
I’m not a big Bai Mu Dan fan. Too earthy, too woodsy. The blueberry in the smell is beautiful, but it’s overpowered in the cup.
It’s okay. It came as a gift from my friend. I’m open to swapping.
Edit: Second steep better. Not as fuzzy. More blueberry.
Just used it to make honey crinkle cookies- so good. Also a hit at the last tea party, especially with milk and, well, honey.
(iPod note, so super short)
I had heard from a friend that this was the best tea Argo had, so I bought a bunch of it loose-leaf. I’m not the biggest fan of Earl Grey, but this tea just smells AMAZING. I made it with milk and a little bit of sugar when I was having a rough day. The smell is much stronger than the taste but it was delicious. Vanilla-y, Earl Grey-y goodness. I didn’t really taste the bergamot, but I’ll probably make it stronger next time. If you like Earl Grey, you should at least try this tea.
I’m going to hold off on rating this for now. It seems a bit less flavorful than some teas, but it could be that I should just use more tea and less water. The green comes out as a bit of a grassy one, and the flavors are there more in scent than flavor.
I had a cup of this at an Argo in Chicago. However, I can’t find any record of it on their website! As best I can remember, it was an herbal cup with fruit pieces (apple, specifically, but I forget what else). It was less spicy than I had guessed, and I think more hibiscusy, but I’m having a hard time even recalling the cup since yesterday. I think it’s because it was such an herbal tea that I just put it in that category in my head and can’t recall specifics. So obviously: not a stand out tea.
I had this and it was really more like a soft drink. I had a black tea with peach flavor. This drink includes carbonated water, and I’m certain a fair amount of sweetener, so it was not quite what I am used to drinking. Still, a fun and refreshing drink—especially if a rare treat.
I had a pumpkin spice chai tea latte, and it was quite good! Not nearly as sweet as the Starbucks chai lattes. I got it with soy milk, but the barista pointed out it’s really good with almond milk—which at least that location had. So, if I find myself near an Argo again in the future, I’ll be giving that a go!
A review of Carolina Honey by Argo Tea
I had this tea today and it was lovely and very sweet; tasting very much like the honey depicted on the bottle. This is sweet, sweet tea with honey oozing throughout. It tastes like taking the honey directly from the hives. Winnie the pooh haven like!
I could not drink this tea daily since it is too sweet. The lemon juices and the honey and cane sugar all blends nicely; no tartness at all. It is good tea.
A review of Green Tea Ginger Twist by Argo Tea
I purchased this tea while doing grocery shopping at Shaws Market last week and I had placed one bottle in the fridge and forgotten about it until today. I decided to take it with us while out at a fair. Once again, I did not enjoy this fair, I am sorry to say. Anyhow, I shook this tea vigorously before pouring it into my trusty travel drink carrier and sipped it along the way.
Tea color is darkish brown and smells strongly of the spicy ginger and once tasted it is there to meet those tantalizing taste buds. Tea is very sweet and is a strong black tea.
I would have liked/enjoyed it more without the pulp.
This is nice – it tastes like a cider actually. It really is a great Winter tea – wonderful to curl up with. Not at all bitter or astringent, not sweet either, just super wonderfully pleasant and fruity with great apple elements. After I brewed it up there were big pieces of orange peel in the strainer :)
So I haven’t had this in awhile, though I remember it very fondly. This was my first Rooibus and it wasn’t bad. I could taste the pomegranate which is always good but then their was the Rooibus taste that distracted me for a little bit. Over time I was able to cancel it out though and just enjoy the Pomegranate. Only weird thing is that after I drank this or any other Rooibus tea I would end up having messed up dreams every time with night sweats. Not sure if this has anything to do with the tea or not but it seems like a weird thing to happen every time.
I’ve found I generally don’t like the vegetal note of unflavored Green Teas—Hojicha, which is atypical in being roasted, is an exception. It was suggested I might want to try Genmaicha as well. So when I dropped into this tea shop and saw I could buy a cup I thought I’d give it a try. Mind you, at $2.67 for a small cup, I could almost buy a couple of ounces at TeaSource or Adagio. But it was a chance to see if I’d like it w/o going through the fuss of an online order.
It was… weird. Unlike anything I’ve tasted in tea, and by this time I’m not exactly a newbie. I could taste a bit of that vegetal note, and it tasted savory somehow, like a broth, and somewhat bitter. I didn’t think I’d like it. But the more I drank, the more it grew on me. I could taste that popcorn-like nutty taste coming through. I’m glad I gave it a try, though I’m still left unsure I’d want to order it again.
I cold-brewed the rest of this blend overnight! This morning it was an amber color and was very refreshing! I love the minty taste mixed with some smokiness of the gunpowder looking leaves.
For the affordable price, I was very impressed by this green tea. The matcha blended into it adds a bold flavor and brilliant color.
I completely forgot about the teas I got at Argo after Christmas. Oops. Nothing really screams “this is for winter only!” about any of them so since I was in the mood for a green, I chose this over the herbal one I’ve yet to try.
And I see why. This is not for me. For some reason I really really cannot do almond flavor in anything but black tea. Something just doesn’t taste right to me in white/green teas. I’m getting it in this and I really don’t like it with the orange and cinnamon. Without that almond taste, this reminds me of a cookie.
If anyone wants this, let me know, because I don’t think I’ll even be able to finish this cup. And if you can do almond flavoring, this has to be a really excellent cup of tea. Boo, taste buds.
This was so refreshing and exactly what I needed this afternoon! It is fresh but not in a toothpaste sort of way. This is how I like it. The green tea was smooth as well. Good tea overall!
Just got home from nightfloat. This is day 2! I always have this strange boost of energy around 7am hence the tea drinking. I figure I will become sleepy again. I steeped this for a shorter time because I wanted to try to avoid the bitterness. Again, the crushed up leaves don’t appeal to me.
Sip… am I drinking straight up hot water? This is a tea that I can’t get right. I drank this down so I have none left. I am thankful for that for sure! Now I can open up and try another tea!
