The real reason I’m writing is to see what teas OTHER than brioche you guys like from the American Tea Room? I’m placing an order I think perhaps maybe yes :)

“The soothing sweet apple notes in this beloved tea are achieved by blending elegant chamomile flowers from around the world. Our golden Egyptian chamomile has a delicate floral quality, while chamomile from Mexico contributes a sweet, earthy flavor. You’ll take comfort in a cup of this perfectly blended chamomile tea any time of day.”

Tonight’s bedtime brew is good old—literally and figuratively—Celestial Seasonings Chamomile. It seems somehow fitting to attempt to finish off a box of ancient (circa Y2K) tea as I prepare to leave the place I called home for ten, count ’em 10! years.
I remain amazed that this tea has retained its potency and flavor. Perversely, this may confirm the rumors about Celestial Seasonings and pesticides, etc.
I’m just a little afraid of this. I’ve had chamomile tea in a bag before, but the loose tea was just too much. I’ve decided that I need to taste the rest of the tea in my possession, so I thought I would try it again in the bag.
The smell of the tea bags is like the loose tea, but not nearly as strong. I’m brewing this in my three cup pot.
First cup: A lovely, almost golden color. The smell is sweet, unlike the loose tea. Starting to feel a little better about this. First sip — can taste the vegetation but it’s not nearly as intense.
Second cup: Pretty much as the first. I wish I had brought the honey with me, but I usually don’t put honey in my chamomile. For some reason, I feel overly sensitive to the taste. I keep expecting to take a sip and get that horrible cabbage like taste I got from the loose chamomile flowers. I’m not sure why, but I do.
There will be no third cup. I used to like chamomile just on its own, but not anymore. Especially, since I usually find something far more tasty and exciting in my tea cup nowadays.
I am not big on Chamomile but I am ending my day with this cup today since I have been staying up till 5am for the past 2 weeks and just can’t seem to get myself to bed any earlier, hoping this helps. Somehow I never really want to have Chamomile so only drink it in hopes of a quiet night or as a mix with other herbs when I am experimenting. But when I do have it the taste is unique and pleasant.
