Standard, simple herbal blend. The presentation of the dry leaf is lovely. I can taste more chamomile than lavender, though.

This was good, but it wasn’t what I’d call special or even memorable. I think it’s great if you’re just wanting tea. However, I pretty much never find myself with such vague cravings. This was the most plain chamomile tea I’ve tried so far, so at least now I have a truer sense of what chamomile is like. I’ve been wanting to try this one since the first time I perused the Harney & Sons website. Thanks, carol who, for giving me the opportunity to try 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.
This tea has a soothing chamomile sweetness accented by other flowers. The blend is very nice but not terribly impressive. More exotic flowers that can compete with the chamomile would be an improvement. The tea tastes shy and comforting with a lasting presence after being swallowed. One is reminded of corn, wheat and somehow dry hay. Overall this chamomile behaves exactly as it is supposed to with few surprises.

This tea is nothing special, and I don’t know why but it tastes powdery to me. I can barely taste the lavender, so this tea is very one note. I can’t write much about it because it’s pretty much like any other chamomile tea. I hate to say it, but I almost think that Tazo’s Calm is better than this. :(
This tea is very pretty and fragrant. It can be quite common as it is mainly composed of chamomile and lavender, but somehow the two together makes a very pleasant aroma that contains the two, yet very different compared to each of them separately. The corn flower leaves actually add accent to the color of dry leaves rather than the lavender. The product was very fresh, the scent was pretty and full bodied, and the taste was comforting and satisfying. When you open the product you can see that the tea satchels are fully filled. Brew about 1 minute the first time, leave out the bag and a little bit longer second and third time around. For me it was okay to brew up to 3-4 times. Quality wise, this tea is great. However, I suspect the satchels are made of nylon, and even though this is a very pretty tisane blend that is healthy, I didn’t give it a full 100 because I don’t think it takes extra creativity to come up with this blend. Chamomile + lavender blend is something I made often at home on my own using the stock tea I had at home. Purchasing of this product was more for convenience rather than trying something new or to add to collection.
