This is actually one of the best chamomile (TIL it can also be spelled Camomile as it is spelled on the box) teas I’ve ever had.
For some off reason, the cheapest grocery store value-price chamomile tastes the best to me. So now, I just buy 3-crown brand, the cheapest one available ($2 CAD or $1.51 USD for 20 teabags.)
This tea is great. You can’t mess up the steep time (personally, I start drinking after 2 minutes but leave the teabag in and just keep adding hot water). It does very well in blends (try one teabag of this chamomile with one teabag of mint!) and it’s great with some honey. I’ve used it to make iced tea before also, and it is plenty flavourful because it resteeps 2 times.
As with any cheap bagged chamomile tea, this tastes like warm, dry grass, dried flowers, pollen, and has the typical lemon/pepper flavour of chamomile blossoms. Another things to mention is that this is not vegetal at all like fresh chamomile can be. I intend to buy some chamomile flower plants for my herb garden some day, but I very much prefer this bagged tea. So sue me.

The dry tea has prominent and distinctive smell. The only thing I can think of to compare the smell to is licorice allsorts candy. It has been many years since I have eaten licorice allsorts but if I remember correctly it smells like the soft licorice allsorts with the tiny blue or pink colored balls stuck to it.
When I made the tea the smell was not as prominent as when it was dry but I found the taste to be quite pleasant.
I enjoy some fruit teas but a lot of fruit teas are too tart and I have been suspicious that it was rosehips and or hibiscus that are making the fruit teas so tart. This tea only has 2 ingredients (rosehips & hibiscus) so I actually bought this tea as an experiment and if this was way too tart then I would try and avoid the fruit teas with these ingredients too close to the top of the ingredient list.
First of all when I opened the box they teas are not individually wrapped so I smelled the whole box of tea bags and I could not smell much of anything. That was a bit disappointing because every other tea I have ever had has quite a bit of smell (usually a good smell).
I made the tea with only 70 C water for only 2 minutes because I thought it might get too tart if I used boiling water or steeped it for too long. This tea is intensely red! by the 2 minute mark it was so red it looked almost like a cup of blood. I was not even able to see the spoon when it was more than 1 inch into the tea.
It tasted quite fruity and a little bit tart but not bad at all. I quite enjoyed this tea.
