From Adagio Teas

The finest chamomile flowers in the world come from the Nile River Valley of Egypt. Considered a remedy for all ills by the ancient Egyptians, this golden herb remains a modern favorite to promote calm and relieve anxiety. When steeped, these fragrant blossoms smell of freshly cut apples and produce a rich, golden cup with superior flavor. This caffeine free herbal infusion is delicious served with honey.

This was the first time I tried chamomile that wasn’t in crushed and bagged form – wow! My mom used to make me chamomile tea when I was a kid and I always liked the taste (I also used to put it in my hair with lemon juice to bring out highlights in the summer but that’s another story). This takes it up a notch (or three). It’s like trying Ghirardelli chocolate when all you’ve ever eaten was Hershey’s.

It tastes fresh, smells wonderful, and tastes like honey when you add a little sugar. It’s also very relaxing, especially after a stressful day at work (might not be a bad idea to start bringing it to work in that case!). Also, as with all chamomiles, it’s great at soothing an uneasy stomach so that’s always good to have on hand.

If you like bagged, grocery store chamomile, please try this. You’ll be glad you did :)

Never heard of the hair treatement. Cool! Cuz for my tastes, that’s the only thing it’s good for lol! Glad you liked it though.

I used to do it to enhance my already bleach-blond hair. It only works if you have blonde or light brown hair… mix it up and spray it on your hair before you go out in the sun. Just don’t try it if you have medium to dark hair! You might want to Google it, it’s been years since I did that – not to mention I’m back to my natural brunette :)

I’m going to have to try it with honey now, I can see how that would go well with it.

I used two tsps as suggested. The smell of the raw tea is something like dark chocolate. So imagine my surprise when I taste it for the first time. It was kind of like bitter, raw cabbage. Some honey helped, but this is nothing like any bagged chamomile I’ve ever drank. I tried milk as well, but the milk and the taste of green vegetation turned my stomach.

I really want to like this, and I suppose I need to try it with less chamomile, or maybe blend it with something else.

The experiment continues.

I treat this from Adagio as something to blend with tea leaves, not something to drink on its own. If you have any peppermint or spearmint leaves you could add to this and the blend may help you use this up.

Good luck! :)

Thanks for the advice. I might try it with the peppermint. The whole experience was rather unexpected.

Was in the mood for something light without caffeine since I am starting to wind down for the evening. This has a lovely soft sweet taste and is very relaxing. I remembered however that last time I drank this I had a little bit of an allergic reaction because it is part of the plant family that includes ragweed. And guess what? I’m allergic to ragweed. Wonderful. Why can’t I remember things like this before I actually consume the drink? Oh well. I enjoyed the taste and shall keep my fingers crossed that my body won’t react too unkindly to this yummy plant.

Meant to add that I did have a runny nose and general allergy symptoms the day after drinking this. So sad.

Drinking once more to stave off this oncoming illness. Adagio’s chamomile is really good, and I’m almost out. Darn it.

I hope your sickness is able to be circumvented, or, failing that, that you have some other good teas to keep you company!

Really enjoying this chamomile! It has an extra… FRESHNESS I guess that I obviously never experienced with my past bagged chamomiles. It’s really cool to see the full flowers too, what a cute tea. Can tea be cute? WELL IT IS NOW.

Much better I ever expected it to be! Also I think it would actually taste good with a little sugar which is rare for me but It’s not really tea so that makes sense but I dont believe I even have sugar in the house to try it, I bet honey would also be delicious, maybe my nex Adagio purchase might be Honey.
My little brother says it tastes grassy but I don’t see how, I enjoy it greatly and will probably be buying more in the future

The dry herbs smell like caramel and vanilla wheat. Great dry aroma.
The steeped tea initially smells somewhat like caramel pee. Ahah yeah, but no need to worry it definitely does not taste like pee!

The chamomile is so soft and light in this tea, it’s very nice for people like me who don’t really care for herbals or strong herbal flavors.
It’s got almost a honey-like finish, and I love the hay/wheat aftertaste. That’s probably because I love barley teas like Boricha (Mugicha) which is a Korean tea.

Last words: Great herbal for those looking for a lighter and mellow herbal taste that still retains a nice sweetness.

So definitely a lot better then I thought it would be. I am happy I bought the big bag. It is slightly sweet with a honey back. Has a wonderful bouquet with a pale yellow steep. I enjoyed this more than I expected and I will buy it again.

I’ve only ever had bagged chamomile, so I was blown away by the beauty of this tea - the yellow blooms with white petals look spectacular in the tin and while steeping. The thing I love most is that not all of the flowers are missing all of their petals, and not all petals are intact, either-it’s like the tea gods’ way of saying that every blossom can make an incredible tea.

And it is incredible. The flavor of these flowers is the richest chamomile I’ve had, with a honey-like taste and a floral scent like I’m sticking my face into a bunch of wildflowers. This cup treats all of the senses.

This is such a lovely tea. I love the look of the tea “leaves” before they ever even hit the water. So pretty.

Anyway, this is a very nice, smooth chamomile. Perfect.

I’ve read others complain about difficulty in cleaning the breweing basket. Quick tip: I bought a baby bottle brush — it has a little sponge on the tip and bristles everywhere else (like a regular bottle brush) and it works perfectly for cleaning the old tea baskets. :)

We have also tried this as a blend with the Adagio Peppermint. It’s super yummy and makes a great evening tea as it is uber relaxing. This tea with a nice leisurely soak in the tub = blissful night’s rest!

It’s a relatively mild tea, so I do find that I don’t get as many cups out of one basket of leaves. With most teas, we average 5-6 cups before we toss it out for composting. This is more like 2 or 3. But for the lovely flavor, I’m perfectly ok with that.
