The oldest, stalest chamomile are always my favourite. Fresh chamomile is just too vegetal for my liking. This teabag was found at the back of my friend’s pantry and is at least several years old. Score!

It made an excellent cup. 300 mL hot water, steeped the teabag 4 minutes. It produced a delicious chamomile flavour with notes of hay/dried grass, bales of straw, lemon, and pollen.

Flavors: Dry Grass, Hot hay, Lemon, Straw

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 15 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

I actually just tried to Google aged chamomile. It’s not really a thing I’m afraid to say

Too bad, because it tastes so much better. I find grandparents/older family friends usually have an old stash of teas. I often buy 3-crown camomile (idk why they spell it that way) and it seems to come stale. The cheapest brands are usually the best bet, dollar stores or cheap grocery store chamomile is usually a lot tastier than fresh loose leaf or expensive pyramid sachets.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
