From Ocean of Tea

Hailing from the beautiful country of Egypt, chamomile tea is derived from the tiniest and prettiest chamomile flower. Delicate in nature, bright with yellow color and innocent as can be, these chamomile flowers make for a calming cup of tea. These blossoms are harvested and dried to make this delicious tea that comes to you complete with whole dried chamomile flowers. Golden in color and light in taste, this is a gentle tea for those looking for a caffeine free treat. Slightly sweet with apple undertones and floral scents, this could be the tea for someone looking for a light tea with a hint of honey. Forget the store-bought, pre-sealed packets that cannot possibly deliver the depth of flavor that this chamomile tea can. Try it for the first time, and it will be the only chamomile tea you will be hooked on. This is a caffeine free tea.

We have tried to grow chamomile with zero success. My wife loves the stuff. So we always have some around. I find I seldom help drink it. I like it. It just never occurs to me to fix it. Not much of a lead in to this tasting note but let me say I enjoyed this quite a bit in the middle of the afternoon. Just got home from watching X-Men and thought a quiet moment was in order. This smells of tart apples, honey, and flowers. The taste is similar with a spiciness added. I also caught faint saltiness and hints of mineral. I used filtered water but can’t rule out the last notes being from our water. A nice calming cup.

I have some kind of chamomile that grows in my yard like a weed. I hate it, I am always pulling it out. I am not sure if it is “drinkable” kind. There are some varieties that can be poisonous so I am not too interesting in finding out which kind I have.

Lol, same as Lala, it grows freely around the yard here too, but I hate the taste of chamomile. Want to trade places, KS?

Winters are harsh enough down here. I think I’ll let you keep your wild (potentially poisonous) chamomile all to yourselves.

I have gone full on into origami obsession again, even if I cannot find a decent way to organize my paper. Currently I have the paper divided by colors and types and I am tying them up with string. It is not a perfect solution but it certainly is better than the paper being tossed in various boxes. Now I just need to go to the library and pick up the origami books waiting for me.

Today’s tea is a classic for those who can’t sleep and want a sip before bedtime, Chamomile by Ocean of Tea. This specific chamomile comes from Egypt, and let me start by saying I was very impressed by the flowers, usually chamomile teas I run into are about half full buds and half a pile of fluff, which is a real pain to clean out of my tea basket. The aroma is very distinctly chamomile, but if you have never had the pleasure to sniff this flower it has a similarity to straw, a touch of honey, and a bit of pollen. Also if you have ever sniffed a yarrow plant you will notice there is a similarity to chamomile. I will say this for this particular chamomile is it smells really fresh, almost like the fresh flower and not just the dried version, very nice!

The now re-hydrated (ok they were never THAT wet) flowers have an aroma that is still very distinctly chamomile, but the honey notes come through stronger giving it an extra layer of sweetness. The liquid smells identical to the wet flowers except it is a bit more delicate.

Ah chamomile tea, you have always been a favorite of mine, drinking is always a pleasure. Especially so with a chamomile that tastes as fresh and clean as these flowers! There is a nice blend of straw, honey, pollen, and floral notes that to me evoke summer time. Drinking chamomile might not make me feel sleepy the same way that taking a sleep aid does, but it does make me feel sleepy the way that napping in the sun on a warm day does. This is some of the best chamomile I have had short of drying my own, it tastes very clean and fresh, perfect for relaxing before sleep…and with that note, I am going to bed!
