This is my least favorite chamomile tea that I’ve come across. Maybe I’m just a purist, but I prefer only chamomile in a chamomile tea. This tea has a woody, spicy flavor to it that I do not enjoy.

I’ve had a pitcher of this in my fridge to take to work this week. I like chamomile, but I definitely prefer it with other things mixed in, so this was perfect! I had to use four teabags when I usually only need three for a pitcher, but that’s my only complaint. The flavor kind of stays in your mouth. I added some sugar, so it tastes mostly sweet and a little minty. It’s mild, but very…thirst-quenching?
People in other houses always have what I feel to be weird tea selections, and then seem confused by them.
I asked my aunt what non-caffeinated tea she had, and she dug out this and some lemon zinger, shrugging at me. “I guess this is it,” she said.
It’s… your… house? Don’t you have your tea cupboard of three teas memorized?
It’s possible she just keeps it on hand for guests. This is how I am about coffee (I keep some Folgers and a cheap-ass coffee pot on hand), so I get it. Maybe she’s not a tea person.
Anyway, this was a really nice tea. It tasted a lot like Sleepytime Tea. Chamomile was the leader of the party, with some nice flowers, too.
It might have helped me fall asleep, except the house had no air conditioning and my dog was allowed to share a bed with me. He kept huffing around, wiggling, and shuffling. Oh, and he hogged the bottom of the bed. Somehow. He’s 30 pounds. Between his relentless, shifty bed-hoggery and sweat oozing from my skin, I got maybe four hours of sleep.
BUT SO CUTE:
I’m willing to forgive.
If you use an individual teabag, this chamomile tea is quite weak and watery. I like this tea when I steep it using two tea bags, and I leave them to soak for quite a while so the water absorbs as much of the subtle flavours as possible. When done this way, I really like the herbal aroma of the tea, and the taste is quite noticeable, yet soothing at each sip. I do like my tea strong, so the two-teabag method is the only way I can drink this tea, but I think that it is worth it. It helps me relax and enjoy a warm beverage before bed.
This tea is pretty meh. I have a much better chamomile blend at home, but when I’m working this is the best tea they have available (and when you’re working for Guest Services, something calming is always best).
It does indeed calm you, but it doesn’t have a particularly strong taste of anything to it. This is definitely a light tea, and it takes about five minutes to brew it to my liking. The tea sachet itself is a pretty decent quality— I don’t find floating dust at the bottom of my cup like I do with most very cheap teas— but the flavor is overall lacking.
To describe it, I’d say it has a minty smell and initial taste, with the aftertaste being just a whiff of chamomile. The initial minty taste’s intensity if drastically cut by being mixed with the chamomile, though.
