I have now seen the light, thanks to (Liberteas?) who advised me to seek out an unbagged chamomile. I’ll be trying samples of others, probably, but in the meanwhile this herbal tisane has also redeemed Old Wilmington Tea Company for me.

Elsewhere I mentioned recently that I was going to have to give up on their blended teas but that I had a sample of Egyptian Chamomile and one of Amethyst in my recent order.

Reader, there truly is all the difference in the world between loose, good-quality chamomile like this one and bagged, semi-crushed chamomile which is all I had ever had before.

It’s a very delicate flavor, but it’s there. The scent of apples is lovely and innocent, like slipping into a cool white cotton nightgown on a mild summer night. I steeped it about 10 minutes and did not add anything to it.

Just a sweet old-fashioned treat for bedtime.

That isn’t Angus; nor is it Merle, Finn, or Dulcie. It’s a very focused Scottish wildcat.
