I’m not typically drawn towards chamomile teas, although I distinctly remember liking the few I had as a child. But given that I’m sick, an herbal tea seemed appropriate for the night. I ordered a sample of this with my last h & s order, although I can’t remember what exactly brought it to my attention.
Anyway, I read that this tea is fairly mild, so I gave it a six minute steep and took it without any additions. It’s odd, because I don’t really get a strong chamomile flavour; rather, I get a mostly non-descript citrus flavour that holds its own against what seems to be a base of something slightly more than hot water. I expected the chamomile to be stronger, but am actually ok with the balance of flavours in this blend. I am also pleased that hte citrus in this blend is not at all tart or bitter, so it doesn’t irritate my throat or make me cringe. I have enough left for another cup, and it does seem like a good sick tea, so it shouldn’t be terribly difficult to finish off. That said, I don’t think I’ll be ordering it.
