I forgot how sweet this tea is! Very strong chamomile flavour with a hint of lemongrass, a nice comforting cup before bed. I oversteeped this for a very long time and it was still absolutely perfect.
Flavors: Honey, Lemongrass

Wasn’t paying attention to what I opened and scooped into my cup. Only to realize as I went to take a nice big sniff of the brew that it had chamomile in it. insert tears and sad face here Allergies really suck! I was loving the Christmas fruit cake vibe of the dried leaves.
So I have no clue how this tea tastes, but my oldest is laughing as she sips away on the cup of tea she did not have to make for herself.
Cold Brew Sipdown (212)!
Finally, after months of this tea being on back order we got it back in stock which means I can cross it off the list for Project Tea Wall. Not that I’m particularly excited to do so, though. Nothing about this blend really appeals to me – it’s a chamomile heavy herbal with hibiscus and licorice root of all things. The only ingredient that could be redeeming, I fear, is the lemon myrtle. But even that is… not promising.
I chose to cold brew this because I was pretty sure I would dislike it anyway, so I wanted to at least make this tasting memorable/unique. I already understand why this appeals to people as a hot tea/bed time tea but I’d like to be able to offer some other sort of perspective of it.
The taste is much like I thought: predominantly the STRONG taste of gross, floral chamomile with a wickedly sweet licorice root and fennel finish to the sip. However, I definitely though I’d hate it more than I actually am. The lemon is surprisingly strong compared to all these other really dominant flavour notes and it’s counterbalancing them enough that I can handle the overall taste. It’s sweet, and fruity without any acidic qualities, and really what it’s reminding me of is lemon meringue pie filling! If only that was the only flavour here, I think this blend and I would be pretty good friends. That’s not the case though, and that flavour note isn’t enough to completely negate everything else.
However, for a blend I was almost certain that I’d dislike because of the ingredients this holds up pretty well. And, it’s not that I think it’s actually a bad blend overall – all my issues with it purely stem from the fact that the key ingredients/flavours are things that I already know I don’t personally like. Anyone who doesn’t have a strong negative bias towards them like I do would probably be all over this as a night time tea.
Plus, it’s a lot better than the straight chamomile so there’s that.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
chamomile, liquorice, and some lemon myrtle are the dominant notes in this tea. relaxing blend that can go with or without honey – i went without. i didn’t really like this tea when i first got it as the liquorice was quite strong, but it has mellowed over time and now is less potent/strong and thus more drinkable for my tastes.
i’d be asleep by now if not for others waking me up…
Flavors: Flowers, Lemon Zest, Licorice
I’m pleasantly surprised by this tea. Dry, the aroma is so strong that it can be overwhelming, but once it’s steeped, it mellows out and tastes almost rich, but not cloyingly so. I don’t really like chamomile tea, and got this as a gift, so I was reluctant to try it, but quite happy with how it turned out. I don’t know if it’ll become a favourite, but on the first try, it’s not bad at all.
Flavors: Lemon Zest, Licorice, Orange Zest
