This box has been in my cupboard forever. I got it in a set with some other one I really wanted, and I just never got around to making this. Since I was already boiling water to steep some kiwi berry for iced tea, and it was 10pm, I figured ‘what the heck!’.

It is pretty standard chamomile tea, but when I thought about it I have to say, I am impressed. I am not sure I can much distinguish between this tea and my loose leaf mint chamomile. It’s thick and flavorful and smells nice. The only thing I might say about this one is that it is leaving a ‘thing’ in the back of my throat. What is that?

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 8 min or more
zeitfliesst less than a minute ago Yeah, that ‘thing’ at the back of your throat is what threw me off too. My mouth felt really dry after a sip of this tea.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea off and on for a few years, but only in the last year have I started to test out loose leafs, and expand my taste buds.

I consider myself very new to the world of teas, especially when it comes to properly steeping, and knowing much about what certain teas are supposed to be like.

After discovering there was more to tea than Red Rose OP, I have traditionally tended to drink mint teas and similar herbals (but no fruity ones), red rooibos, honeybush, and the occasional matte. I’ve only recently discovered white teas and oolongs, which I really enjoy.

I’m expanding my knowledge, trying new teas, and just starting to learn about temperature/steep times, etc.

0: I don’t even want to taste it.
1-10: I can’t finish the cup.
11-30: I’ll finish my cup, but that’s it.
31-50: I will drink it until I’ve used it all up, or find someone to give it to. It’s ok, but it’s not something I tend to reach for.
51-70: I enjoy it enough to reach for it specifically, but I won’t get it again.
71-80: I enjoy it quite a bit. I would recommend it to others.
81-90: I would definitely buy again, but it’s not my favorite.
91-100: The creme de la creme
