I love the way this tea smells! And it’s a pretty color in my orange mug. But I really haven’t enjoyed this tea. I steeped it for 5 minutes in 200 degree water, but it just doesn’t have any flavor to me. It tastes slightly better than hot water. So after typing this I steeped it for 2 more minutes.
Edit: Still a no go. So I went off this (See below) that I found on Pinterest and added 3/4 cup lemonade. It’s interesting now. I get the hint of chamomile that the tea had and the sour from the lemonade. Still not my favorite because the tea watered down the lemonade. Any tips on how to drink this tea would be most welcome. I’m new to tea here.

Backlog from March 31, 2015:

I’m terribly behind on adding my tasting notes here, but I promise I do have them all written down in my little notebook. I’m slowly working through the list. Here is a quick blurb that I wrote down but forgot to log back in March.

My husband keeps telling me that I need to try this tea because he really loved the one bag of this that he’s tried so far. It smells fantastic, like chamomile and sweet, ripe fruit. Unfortunately, it has a bit of an artificial flavor. It’s not really sweet on its own so I added a little extra honey which is also helping to improve the flavor. I’m not sure it tastes as good as it smells, but it’s still enjoyable.

Hmm. I don’t know what to think of this. It’s sweeter than plain chamomile, and I can taste the honey and vanilla a bit, but it has an odd aftertaste. I think I prefer plain chamomile to this.

Many, many thanks to Ost for this tea!
I had a beautiful lazy day, and this tea was a beautiful way to end the evening.
Its lovely! I’d had this once before, and now I can see that I need to hunt it out for my own cupboard.
A lovely Sunday. If only tomorrow was not Monday!

Had this last night, but Steepster was acting up. This is another decent herbal blend from an inexpensive grocery store purchase. Vanilla and chamomile feature with a tiny touch of honey. This is a soothing mug and a great way to end a night when I have a cold. I think I still prefer the Vanilla Sleepytime personally as it is more complex and the overall flavor appeals to me more, but I already drank the whole box and this is what I have left. Still a good one when you need something calming in a jiffy. :)

I really like this one. It’s one of my go to comfort teas when I’m sick.

So, as my health gets worse, my mum keeps trying to find things to help manage my pain (because she is just awesome that way), and one of the things she found out was that a decent amount of people drink Chamomile tea, and it helps their muscles and nerves relax more.
Soooo since yesterday was horrible and nothing seemed to work, I finally took a hot bath and made this tea, which I haven’t had in forever it seems.
But it actually really made me feel relaxed! Like really relaxed! So basically, even though this is a bagged tea, it really seemed to help me for a bit, and that’s pretty awesome.
The flavor isn’t even that bad. Don’t really taste vanilla, but definitely taste the honey…it’s super sweet. Not bad for a bagged tea, I must say!
I’m really excited that something finally helped yesterday, since the entire day was agonizing. But now I am on yet another mission to find a really good tea that is relaxing like this one…just…better. xD
If anyone has any recommendations of especially relaxing teas I’d love to hear them! (:

Flavors: Honey, Sweet


So sorry you are struggling with pain and health issues. Not that it helps, but I always drink ones I love best when I’m feeling tense. I have also heard chamomile is calming so that sounds like a good one you had!


Heh, the problem is is that tea has always tended to make me more awake than coffee for some reason and so when I drink oolongs and blacks, it makes me more awake and not as relaxed as a herbal would…so I kinda have to find teas with no caffeine. I end up just saving all my favorite teas for the days/hours that I feel well enough to drink them. Which is good..but also bad since I’m having less and less of those moments haha!


I know what you mean.. and I should try and find better bedtime teas myself. Sometimes I will just make my cup of tea quite weak and add milk so basically it is just hot comforting beverage.
Maybe something with ginger might be good too?


Does making it weaker mean that there is less caffeine in it? Because if it is maybe that would be better. xD
I have heard that ginger helps nausea, but not sure if it helps relax the rest of your body…does it help you at all?


I think it would have less caffeine as I make it very weak, just to add a bit of flavor for a hot cup, and it is often leaves left over from earlier to get to use them up that way too. I’m not sure if ginger helps relaxing my body but it does seem to help with nausea which is also relaxing in itself, and again a nice warm cup of goodness which seems to always be of some comfort.


Ah. Good to know. Well have any ginger tea recommendations? I’m not a huge fan of overly ginger things, but a bit of ginger never hurts :P


Have you tried tulsi? That’s really the only herbal tisane that unwinds me. Tastes like lemon and cloves; goes well with mint.


Ripe puerh relaxes me and I sleep like a baby. Every night I have a session and have at least 6 3oz cups. Can’t drink black before bed. White tea is the worst for me. Would make me awake till 3 am


For ginger, I have just used random bagged herbal ones. Also, davidstea has some herbals with ginger and I have used le digestif, but that one is minty which may not appeal to you. I think they have blends with chamomile too but I haven’t had them.

boychik, I always forget that I have seen that some puerh is relaxing – which ones do you like best for bedtime? And I agree about white tea being worst – it is for me too.


I agree with boychik that some ripe puerhs have a relaxing effect. The one where I noticed it the most was Mandala’s temple stairs. Hope you feel better soon!!


Boston Tea Co.’s Lemon Honey Chamomile has green rooibos in it. The only rooibos I like and I think the combination of honey and chamomile is very relaxing.


I like that one, too, Nicole.


Hmm…this is all very helpful. Going to look into all these things more. Thanks, you guys! :D

Vanilla Sleepytime herbal by Celestial Seasoning is a good relaxing tea. I’ve also used ZZZ by SerendipityTea. Although the aim of these particular teas is sleep they also work as a calming brew.


Hope you feel better soon!

Soooooo this tea!

The honey flavoring tastes genuine, and the vanilla augments it. I also taste peach notes, but I may be crazy.

This is a very good application of lemongrass. It manages to not taste like soap for once.

Well played, Celestial Seasonings.

I love this tea so much. It is definitely my go-to tea for the evening and I love the convenience of the tea bag . I loooovee chamomile teas and this one is super delicious. It is not boring at all and the honey and vanilla add great flavor.

This was one of my favorite teas when I first started. I liked it warm and sweetened. Unfortunately I discovered I have a soy allergy and this has soy lecithin in it so I can’t have it any more :(. But it is yummy, for those who tolerate soy.

In this evening’s steep-off chez sherapop, Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chamomile is going sniff to sniff, sip to sip against Sleepytime Vanilla.

First observation about Honey Vanilla Chamomile: the dried tea smacks very strongly of orange oil—and not without reason. Orange peel is the number two ingredient, right after chamomile! The brewed tea does not, however, taste very much like orange at all. In fact, it seems closer to a rich chamomile blend with a focus on chamomile, not the other showcased ingredients. Neither the honey nor the vanilla is very pronounced, despite the name of the blend.

I like the flavor of this infusion. It is a pleasant mint-free and somewhat hefty (probably because of the chicory and licorice) chamomile composition, which could be good news for those who find Sleepytime too spearmint heavy. Do I like Honey Vanilla Chamomile more than Sleepytime Vanilla? In a direct, side-by-side comparison, the answer is clear: No, I do not.

update: I just read my review of Harvest Chamomile, which seems to list the same ingredients as this new box of Honey Vanilla Chamomile. I am now wondering whether they changed the proportions of the ingredients, because the chamomile is much more pronounced and the honey and vanilla seem very light. Are they identical? Is my change in evaluation due to facts about me rather than the teas?

We’ll never know, because the Harvest Chamomile sample packet is depleted, so I cannot compare my new box of Honey Vanilla Chamomile with the old supply of Harvest Chamomile reviewed by me earlier, and which at the time I concluded was better than Sleepytime Vanilla!
