Thank you to Nichole for sharing some of this tea with me!
My husband and I went for sushi tonight and decided as we were leaving for our dinner date that we would share some tea once we made it back home. We picked up a couple of teas on our way, one of which he is drinking now. I bought myself a minty black tea but decided to have this one instead since it’s so late.
When I opened the bag, my husband remarked that it smelled like honey and oats. I didn’t have that experience, but this does smell stronger than other chamomile teas I’ve had. The sachet actually had whole flowers mixed in with the usual powdery bits so that was a nice change. I steeped this according to the package directions and the liquid soon became a nice reddish color, almost like a light rooibos. I took a sip and was surprised to find that it actually tasted really bitter. I’m baffled because I don’t think I’ve ever had chamomile turn bitter for me before. Unfortunately, it’s a little hard to see past that flavor so I’m really not enjoying it.
It’s not the chamomile for me, but I’m still glad I was able to try it. Thanks again, Nichole!
