This chamomile tea does have a unique taste – a lemony and flowery undercurrent which likely comes from lemon verbena. But I am not so happy with the long, bitter aftertaste that lingers in my mouth. As the tea cools, the bitterness becomes more and more intense! Now my whole cup (instead of only the aftertaste) has turned bitter 0_0

I have never got this from other chamomile blends and I am not sure what is responsible for this. Anyone who has similar experience?

Hi Devilish,
You can try removing the bag after steeping for 5 mins? Generally the tea is best drunk hot/warm as the sweetness is brought out. The taste becomes more flat once the liquid has cooled.

Hope this helps!

Thanks gtc… wait, gtc = Gryphon Tea Company!???? Wow!!!
I will try the tea with your advice next time. There’s still another tea bag in my Treasures box. Despite a few misses, I love my Treasures box because there are so many exciting teas to try!! :) Of course, there are some really nice and interesting ones too ;)

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, Kusmi Tea, Lupicia, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

Btw, check out my tea-themed board on Pinterest, if you like tea and pretty things!
