15 Tasting Notes
I used two bags this time and i was able to get a pretty good chocolate flavor. I’d say this tea is pretty enjoyable, actually.
When i’m stuffed up and i have heartburn, this isn’t so bad.
I didn’t get any of the unpleasant fakeness that people are complaining about. It smells WONDERful, and it didn’t really taste like much of anything. I’ll try two bags next time.
Not quite as lovely this time because i’m a little stuffed up and can’t smell very well, but a little honey enhanced the flavor for me. I love it.
Okay, maybe i just don’t like chamomile at all.
I discovered several months ago that chamomile seems to help with my heartburn, though, and so i’ve been searching high and low for an infusion that i enjoy drinking. I started with Tazo’s Calm, moved on to Mighty Leaf’s Chamomile Citrus, tried Lipton’s Chamomile Pineapple blend, Celestial Seasoning’s Honey Vanilla Chamomile, and finally Bigelow’s Cozy Chamomile. Each tea was worse than the last. I thought perhaps that a full-“leaf” chamomile would be the ticket, but this still just tastes like a handful of prairie in a cup to me.
The one infusion i tried recently that i really enjoyed was Traditional Medicinal’s Chamomile with Lavender. So perhaps i’ll toss a handful of lavender in with the rest of my Cleopatra’s Cuppa and hope that it’s a little more tolerable that way. The worst part is the smell, so i think some lavender would definitely help out in that department.
I’m so disappointed, mostly with myself. I really wanted to like this!
Oh, this is dreamy. What a great combination! Very soothing and lovely. Probably the best chamomile blend i’ve tried thus far; i think i’m finally zeroing in on how i like my chamomile.
It’s funny, i used to think this tea tasted a little offensively of chamomile, and now that i’ve had Cozy Chamomile and a smattering of strange chamomile blends, i think the flavor in this one is very delicate and pleasantly balanced with the other ingredients.
Ah, sweet (heartburn) relief. Yep, straight-up chamomile is way more pleasant than all those silly blends. Next time i get over to Des Moines’s East Village i’ll get some good, whole chamomile from Gong Fu, but in the meantime this bagged version is plenty enjoyable.
This tea is just… weird. I don’t know if it’s that pineapple and chamomile is a combination that doesn’t work as well as it sounds like it would or if Lipton just did a bad job getting the balance right, but it just tastes strange.
At first i loved this tea because the chamomile taste is so subtle, but i’ve decided that the result of that is less benefit for my heartburn, and the tea doesn’t really taste like much of anything in the end. The bag smelled strongly of fennel, but that taste wasn’t present in the tea. The only thing i can really taste is the sweet vanilla flavor, which rings as somewhat artificial. I wonder what exactly gives the tea its sweetness. It’s kind of creamy and not unpleasant in any way, but the flavor is so weak that i can’t really say that this tea is worthwhile.
