Origin: Organic, fair-trade chamomile blossoms from the U.S.
Flavor Profile: Bright spring and summer flavors of Red Delicious apples and fresh flowers, followed by a clean, floral aftertaste.
Tea Story: Even people who “don’t like chamomile” love this chamomile. Big, full, organic, fair trade blossoms with bright, daisy colors yield a dry bouquet of true chamomile sweetness, with strong floral aromas and impressions of vanilla, apple blossoms and fresh-cut Red Delicious.
It brews into a clear, clean liquor without chamomile’s usual cloudy appearance. The taste is classically chamomile, yet far more crisp and clean, as though chamomile had been purified to its essence. The effect is profusely calming and ultra-relaxing. If you usually add honey or sugar to your chamomile, try this one without it first. You may find that it’s sweet enough for you on its own.
Samovarian Poetry: Golden blossoms brew into nectar of pure tranquility.
Food Pairings: Chamomile Blossoms pair equally well with creamy-savory and sweet-tart dishes. Try this classic herbal infusion with equally traditional afternoon tea fare, like cucumber, vegetable cream cheese or almond-chicken salad finger sandwiches, scones with Devonshire cream and strawberry jam or a blackberry trifle. It’s also delicious with stonefruit or apple cobbler and vanilla ice cream, or blended into Grossmutter’s Punch (a.k.a. “Christmas Eve Punch”).
