Hmm. I don’t know what to think of this. It’s sweeter than plain chamomile, and I can taste the honey and vanilla a bit, but it has an odd aftertaste. I think I prefer plain chamomile to this.

Had this last night, but Steepster was acting up. This is another decent herbal blend from an inexpensive grocery store purchase. Vanilla and chamomile feature with a tiny touch of honey. This is a soothing mug and a great way to end a night when I have a cold. I think I still prefer the Vanilla Sleepytime personally as it is more complex and the overall flavor appeals to me more, but I already drank the whole box and this is what I have left. Still a good one when you need something calming in a jiffy. :)

So, as my health gets worse, my mum keeps trying to find things to help manage my pain (because she is just awesome that way), and one of the things she found out was that a decent amount of people drink Chamomile tea, and it helps their muscles and nerves relax more.
Soooo since yesterday was horrible and nothing seemed to work, I finally took a hot bath and made this tea, which I haven’t had in forever it seems.
But it actually really made me feel relaxed! Like really relaxed! So basically, even though this is a bagged tea, it really seemed to help me for a bit, and that’s pretty awesome.
The flavor isn’t even that bad. Don’t really taste vanilla, but definitely taste the honey…it’s super sweet. Not bad for a bagged tea, I must say!
I’m really excited that something finally helped yesterday, since the entire day was agonizing. But now I am on yet another mission to find a really good tea that is relaxing like this one…just…better. xD
If anyone has any recommendations of especially relaxing teas I’d love to hear them! (:
Flavors: Honey, Sweet
I love this tea so much. It is definitely my go-to tea for the evening and I love the convenience of the tea bag . I loooovee chamomile teas and this one is super delicious. It is not boring at all and the honey and vanilla add great flavor.

In this evening’s steep-off chez sherapop, Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chamomile is going sniff to sniff, sip to sip against Sleepytime Vanilla.
First observation about Honey Vanilla Chamomile: the dried tea smacks very strongly of orange oil—and not without reason. Orange peel is the number two ingredient, right after chamomile! The brewed tea does not, however, taste very much like orange at all. In fact, it seems closer to a rich chamomile blend with a focus on chamomile, not the other showcased ingredients. Neither the honey nor the vanilla is very pronounced, despite the name of the blend.
I like the flavor of this infusion. It is a pleasant mint-free and somewhat hefty (probably because of the chicory and licorice) chamomile composition, which could be good news for those who find Sleepytime too spearmint heavy. Do I like Honey Vanilla Chamomile more than Sleepytime Vanilla? In a direct, side-by-side comparison, the answer is clear: No, I do not.
update: I just read my review of Harvest Chamomile, which seems to list the same ingredients as this new box of Honey Vanilla Chamomile. I am now wondering whether they changed the proportions of the ingredients, because the chamomile is much more pronounced and the honey and vanilla seem very light. Are they identical? Is my change in evaluation due to facts about me rather than the teas?
We’ll never know, because the Harvest Chamomile sample packet is depleted, so I cannot compare my new box of Honey Vanilla Chamomile with the old supply of Harvest Chamomile reviewed by me earlier, and which at the time I concluded was better than Sleepytime Vanilla!
