My sister loves this tea, but I, for one, loathe chamomile, as this tea taught me. It’s too cottony for my taste, but I can understand why others like it.
“Last night all I wanted to do was curl up with my book (The Tenant of Wildfell Hall), my blanket and my cat. I made myself a cup of Honey Vanilla Chamomile because I didn't want to pay close...” Read full tasting note
“Wow - I totally called this - it has Egyptian chamomile! After drinking it in a DAVIDsTEA blend I guess I have a taste for it. But this is much cheaper than any DT blend. Intersting. Thanks...” Read full tasting note

“This is a weird combination of nuttiness and sweetness of a lollipop. It's not bad but I don't know if it is good either. A strange cup indeed.” Read full tasting note

I blame the fact these are probably a good few years old and have only been in the waxed paper bag they originally came in. I purchased them a long time ago and shoved them into the cupboard and neglected them ever since.
Perhaps 1 bag would have been sufficient, but they were so old and not scented….alas not the comforting cup I was seeking.
Out of deference to the poor conditions and age of the bag I will refrain from rating this tea, I have memories of it being a good bed time tea.
This tea just tastes so strange to me. I’ve tried quite a few different chamomile blends now because it helps with my heartburn, so i don’t think it’s the strong chamomile flavor that i find off-putting. The honey/vanilla flavor tastes really artificial to me. And i was worried that the tea would taste citrusy when i first opened the box and smelled an orange-y aroma, but thankfully that isn’t the case. This tea isn’t altogether unpleasant, but my hunt for a favorite chamomile continues. I think the next step will be to try pure, whole chamomile.
