This is my least favorite chamomile tea that I’ve come across. Maybe I’m just a purist, but I prefer only chamomile in a chamomile tea. This tea has a woody, spicy flavor to it that I do not enjoy.

I was surprised when I opened the bag and smelled mint first and foremost. I’ve had this tea before, but it’s been so long that I guess I forgot it had mint. It isn’t a menthol smell like I’ve had in other teas recently but more of a sweet mint.
This is very good. I can taste the chamomile but the mint also adds a little something extra. I don’t really taste the other ingredients (hibiscus, rose, sarsaparilla, licorice) but only chamomile with a bit of mint. It’s a good combination and a nice change from a basic chamomile.
I gave this Calm tea bag from Tazo a very low rating when brewed hot. However, I just discovered that it tastes remarkably good cold! I’m on a mission to turn all of my filter bags into iced tea before the end of this summer, and I was wondering what a cold chamomile blend would taste like. These white-enveloped bags were near the top of my hit list, since I knew that I’d never drink them hot again. This was their last chance.
To my surprise, the blend tastes like a second cousin to Zen, which I also prefer iced to hot. This experiment gives me renewed hope about the possibility of using the teas in my cupboard which I simply do not reach for except maybe to write a review—once or twice. it’s funny because the flavor of this infusion tastes the same to me—but somehow it does not seem boring and flat at this temperature.
I am increasing my rating, but I still won’t be restocking once this supply has been depleted.
First off, the packaging recommends to steep it for 5 minutes but if you steep for only five, you don’t get that much flavor at all generally so it’s greatly recommended to steep it for a time more around 10 minutes so the flavors are really brought to the surface and you can taste each and every interacting herb a lot greater, otherwise this tea falls kind of flat.
However, that out of the way, this tea has a very pleasant and relaxing flavor. The chamomile brings in a nice, strong but balanced, calming flavor that can really put you to ease as all of the other herbs give it a earthy background. The aroma is just amazing as well. This is one of my favorite teas after a long day to unwind with. The tea can really give you a calmed state of mind if you kick back and relax to some music with it or do whatever your favorite past-time may be while sipping this.
