Sipdown, 189. Backlog from last night (no, I’m not having chamomile tea first thing in the morning).
I’ve made my peace with chamomile in blends, and learned to enjoy its appley, slightly honeyed notes. Last night I decided to brew up a sachet that I’ve had of this for a while, and I threw in some rose buds hoping to add some rosey notes. Unfortunately not. The chamomile was so overwhelming that the rose was totally lost. This was potently strong, appley and honeyed, yes, but also kind of dusty in a way that clung to my throat.
So the moral is, chamomile in blends, sure. Chamomile straight up, not so much.
