This blend is a bust! It tastes 100% chamomile . So why not just save some money and purchase chamomile? Oh well…. luckily , this was only a free sample. And obviously I am backlogging from this weekend…

Better yet – why not save some money and GROW chamomile? ;)

I had a wonderful sample of this one so I bought a larger bag. I don’t know what the heckie-pooh they did to this tea, but the bag I got was absolutely blech. I still had a little left in the sample bag and I sniffed it: it smelled like a different tea (much sweeter and fresher). I think that you’ve nailed it — they upped the chamomile with a few things sprinkled around it. Denisend had mentioned “dirty sock” and that’s what I get from it now :(

Lori

Now that is an idea Jillian! Rabs- some other reviewer mentioned the blend change…

Rabs

I had read that reviewer’s note but it seemed like he’d had the exact opposite reaction “what have they done — they’ve made it sweet?” So perhaps they got enough complaints and went back to the less sweet version because I got sweet in my sample and yuck in the bag.

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
