drank Chamomile by Lipton
572 tasting notes

This was a nice chamomile that I had hot at breakfast while I was staying at a motel over the weekend. It’s about what you’d expect. No complaints! It’s difficult to rate a tea like this that’s almost by definition not exciting, but also perfectly pleasant.

It wasn’t cardboard like?

Chamomile is pretty much the same, no matter what brand you’re drinking. (I guess that’s a plus.)

Not always gmathis – I notice great one (Dammnan Freres, which was even fruity) and some tea from Lipton (not chamomile) which was like cardboard.

Ah…let revise my statement to “chamomile in the cheap grocery store brands I always buy” is pretty much the same :) Damman Freres, that’s a whole different quality category!

Martin Bednář

Yeah it is different, but I do not understand it. The flowers are same, even when two teas with whole buds and it was still different.
But yeah, grocery store brands will be same :D

i think a lot of the negative impressions people have about chamomile comes from the crappy bagged tea. The high quality stuff though is completely different. I’ve had some whole chamomile flowers from Rishi and others that are incredibly good. Honeyed and citrusy, not at all cardboard like

Yeah I feel like I’ve had one or two that were disagreeable, but for the most part, they’re all basically the same. I never buy chamomile, but I always end up having some on my shelf somehow!

Steepster is glitching for me, so I can only access it using my laptop, which I don’t use very often, so I unfortunately will not be as active on here as I prefer to be.

I’m an event planner who always has two mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, and listening to podcasts.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
