This is a very soothing tea specially in the cold season. I usually add lemon and ginger water to add a tangy freshness to it. It is perfect before bedtime.

Mother’s Little Helper has been my night time ritual for the last few weeks. I really like it. Tonight however, I decided to have Sweet Dreams instead… And you know what, I might even like it more. I can really taste the fennel and a little bit of licorice. It’s quite good. Best of all the chamomile is doing its job and it is asking me sleepy!
My ultimate sleepy time tea!
Strong hit of chamomile followed by a licorice note and ending with a slight citrusy feeling. I use this and Mother’s Little Helper at night to help me sleep (or come down from the sick amount of caffeine I ingest throughout the day :P) I keep forgetting about how much I like this tea, and I’m almost out. If I have any issue with it, it’s that. It’s forgettable.
I’m not convinced I like the licorice in this tea. It seems very heavy compared to all the other light yumminess in this tea. Otherwise, I really don’t mind it. I haven’t had many chamomile teas before, so I don’t have much to compare them to. It’s tasty though. I think it would be a nice, soothing tea when sick, with a little honey.
This is my day #8 of the David’s Tea “24 Days of Tea” advent calendar.
I LOVE the fennel and licorice dance going on in my mouth when I drink this. I also love how the chamomile isn’t over-powering (I can barely taste it, but for me that’s a good thing). I may or may not re-buy, mainly because there are a few other chamomiley type teas at Davids that I need to try. This herbal doesn’t withstand re-steeping, so I use a little less than recommended and let it sit a couple mins longer. Tastes comforting :)
For me, chamomile tea was never about taste- it was about quelling my moods whenever I was feeling particularly rage-y. Usually I find chamomile teas pretty bland, but this one adds in citrus, hibiscus and more so it’s actually pretty tasty in the mug. I still think it’s best with honey though.
