From Harney & Sons

Caffeine Free Chamomile and Lavender Yellow & Blue is an artful blend of chamomile, lavender, and cornflowers. Every breath is fragrant and fresh. The lavender infusion lends a floral, slightly sweet, and elegant aroma at once soothing and pairs beautifully with calming chamomile and sweet, spicy cornflowers. The yellow, lavender, and blue petals are indisputably colorful. The tea sings of spring with scent and taste like freshly picked posies from a flower field.

Sipdown no. 79 of the year 2014 and my 700th tasting note! Well, that was poor planning. I should have arranged it so that I had the 80th sipdown on the 700th note. ;-)

I remember this being one of the better camomile blends I’ve had. I only had enough left in the sample packet to make about half a cup, but it does remain one of the better camomiles in my book.

For me, pretty much any blend with camomile in it, if the camomile can be tasted, succeeds or fails on the taste of the camomile. In my previous note I mentioned how some camomiles taste to me the way I’d imaging a mouth full of dried flowers would taste. The ones that succeed don’t have that quality.

This blend’s camomile has a freshness to the taste that persists despite the age of this sample. I’m not sure whether it’s the quality of the camomile or the influence of the lavender or some of both, but there’s some sweetness as well that makes this a very pleasant tisane.

Having had some not so great camomile in the past couple of months, I’m boosting the rating a tad and putting this on the wish list, even though it’s still a question mark to me whether I’ll ultimately order it. I do think that even if one isn’t a camomile lover, it makes sense to have a really good camomile in one’s collection for those rare times when it seems like nothing else will do.

Wow, I’m amazed at both your # of sipdowns in less than two months, and your 700! Congrats :)

Chamomile and lavender.

And that’s about all I can say about it.

I can’t imagine how those would taste together…lavender is so soapy and floral in one way and the chamomile is so sweet and floral in a completely different way. Does either overpower the tea?

Cofftea

Meghann M, if you think that’s strange my local shop is sampling a new blend tomorrow- lavender and caramel.

LiberTEAS

Meghann: I can’t speak for this particular blend, because I’ve not tried it, but, I can say that I LOVE the combination of lavender and chamomile. I feel that each brings out the best flavor in both.

Jaime

Meghann, it’s not bad. Just not something I’d swoon over. I’ll throw a few bags in when I mail your package (hopefully the sampler will be ready tomorrow).

Cofftea, I have serious envy right now. Lavender and caramel? Please tell me you’ll post about it!

Cofftea

lol sorry Jaime, can’t get there tomorrow.

Jaime

Sadness!! I hope you get to try it. Sounds delicious!

Meghann M

Jaime, sounds interesting, I’d love to try a bag or two. I just can’t imagine the taste…I’ve never thought of them together.

Liberteas-glad to hear the combination works. I just can’t wrap my head around the tastes combined. I’ll have to try it.

I bought as ample of this eons ago so it is now rather old. I never got around to trying it. My best friend told me she has been trying to drink herbals at night and has been mixing grocery store chamomile and peppermint teas, so I was going to try to amp things up for her birthday with my own blend. I tasted this one to get an idea of where I want to go with this.

This is really simple. Mostly I taste chamomile. The flowers make it pretty but they don’t seem to add a ton of flavor, although again, the sample is old. It is pleasant enough and if I really wanted a simple caffeine free tisane it would suffice.

I still have some of my sample left, too. This is making me want to have some!

A pot of this as my last tea before I tuck off into bed.
I like this, but it hardly knocks my socks anywhere. It does what it says it will, be a relaxing tea, with an added hint of lavender.
I’ve got a bit of this left, for a few more nights with Yellow and Blue, but I dont think I’ll get it again, though I would certainly not reject a cup ever.

Sipdown (112)
(knocking down a whole lot of sipdowns wow this is great)

So I really wanted to drink tea tonight but none of the teas that I had really seemed good right now? My roommate came home from work and brought home cookies and I had milk instead. She was actually really surprised that I wasn’t drinking tea! But I was all… tea sounds GREAT but I own no teas that satisfy my craving.

So here I am. Drinking some Yellow & Blue because out of the teas that I have, this was the one that sounded the best. I’ve been avoiding this sipdown because there’s just SO much chamomile left in this tea, and I’m not exactly the biggest fan of chamomile. Like it’s nice, but this just had SO much in the blend!
And chamomile is probably the ugliest tea when it comes to sipdowns. Like you rarely get the flowers, you just get the weirdo little pellet things that comes out I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT IT’S CALLED IGNORE ME IT’S MIDNIGHT.

MIDNIGHT. YELLOW & BLUE. LOTS OF CHAMOMILE. DRINKING OUT OF MIKE WAZOWSKI’S BRAINS. YEP OKAY AM DONE SLEEPING SOON GOODNIGHT.

The things that look like seeds are lavender :-). To me, they take the edge off the chamomile which is why I like this one.

I had a really lovely Chamomile & Lavender blend the other day, however it’s been discontinued so was hoping this would be similar ..

Unfortunately the Chamomile was so dominant that I wouldn’t have known anything else was in there had I not seen what was in the bag prior :(

A dynamic duo! This is quickly becoming my go-to for relaxing before bedtime. Colorful, alluring perfume with significant flavor (definitely more than I expected from the very light color). One of my floral-y favorites.

I bought this tea because of chamomille and lavender
and because I need to “breathe” in the evenings.
I tried it (no honey or milk) and it was disgusting,
so I added honey and milk and it’s drinkable.
I’ll not repurchase it and I do not recommend it.

The first thing out of the PTS box that I simply HAD to try as soon as I could. I want my world to smell like this tea does. So lovely. As for flavor, its mild and easy to drink if you like lavender and chamomile, but nothing outrageous. I still might buy some to keep on hand for nights when I need to calm down.

Flavors: Lavender
