I guess I’m feeling a little bratty about this. I opened my Sips By box this month and saw… a plain, bagged chamomile. Seriously?
To be fair, it’s definitely a good quality chamomile. I taste vanilla bean and apple, and it was a nice cuppa to unwind with on a Monday evening. Pleasant, as you would want and expect in chamomile.
But… it’s still just a plain chamomile. I prefer to get more unique teas that I can’t find in a store in my Sips By boxes. Maybe I’m giving it short shrift. Will drink the other three servings, won’t purchase a full container.

Flavors: Apple, Hay, Vanilla

I agree, that’s lame. XD

@Cameron B. Yeah, it made me a little grumpy. I’d maybe be more forgiving if they hadn’t also shorted me one sachet of the other, more interesting herbal in this month’s box. :(

I’m a little grumpy at them for not doing more holiday-themed teas this month. I guess they want people to buy their seasonal themed boxes…

I’d be especially disappointed, I don’t even like chamomile!

At least it is a good quality! But I am not fan of chamomile either.

This tea looks great, with the golden tips, and smelled incredible. My first thought when I smelled it was “chocolate”, but then I quickly realized there was more to it, more like “chocolate raspberry”, which made me really anticipate having this tea. I normally drink my black tea with milk, but I tried this without first, and I could definitely get used to this. I was expecting the usual astringency you get with a black tea, but this was incredibly smooth, with only a hint of the acidic taste on the finish, which was surprising because I like my tea strong and I let this brew for a bit longer than normal. A great, bold, silky smooth tea, perfect for waking up with.
