I’ve only ever had bagged chamomile, so I was blown away by the beauty of this tea - the yellow blooms with white petals look spectacular in the tin and while steeping. The thing I love most is that not all of the flowers are missing all of their petals, and not all petals are intact, either-it’s like the tea gods’ way of saying that every blossom can make an incredible tea.
And it is incredible. The flavor of these flowers is the richest chamomile I’ve had, with a honey-like taste and a floral scent like I’m sticking my face into a bunch of wildflowers. This cup treats all of the senses.
I don’t hate it, but I don’t think I “get it” either. Other than the smell, and instant the tea touches your tongue, this is just kind of plain to me. It steeps very quickly and fairly dark. I’m just not getting a lot of sweet potato action. Maybe regular potato, like some others have mentioned, but not so much a yummy sweet potato flavor. I drank this plain…and the flavors are changing now that the cup is cooling off. The natural sweetness is coming out. Still not a sweet potato in my book….but maybe….if you are willing yourself to taste a sweet potato, you will taste it.
Well, I’m FINALLY making myself try this tea that I got from Adagio last month on my birthday- isn’t that sweet? How come every time I make a flavored black it comes out so much stronger than other leaves. I mean I don’t even know if you can call these pellets leaves but boy do they bring on the bold! I topped it off with some reddi whip and I’m all ready to party now lemme tell ya! WoooHoooo! Yes, it’s stronger than I like but a more refined version of this may taste just right for a dessert tea. The more sips I take the more bland I taste the flavors – definitely one dimensional and no notes coming from these teas! But its sweet and hot and possibly in need of a splash of milk. Yeah thats what it needs.. Are these blacks strangely stronger than breakfast teas and assams?
