This classic herbal infusion features the subtle, sweet taste and calming properties of Chamomile flowers. Perfect any time of the day.
Honestly, I don’t get real excited over chamomile tea. In fact, I usually cringe when I receive some. It isn’t that I dislike chamomile; it’s just that it isn’t my favorite herb to brew.
So needless to say, chamomile is not something that I drink very often. But sometimes, I really need to relax and unwind, and no other tea or tisane that I’ve tried promotes a sense of calm better than chamomile.
And, the flavor of this chamomile is quite pleasant! Byron Bay Tea Company does not specify from where they obtain their chamomile, but the blossoms are whole, large, and not at all dusty. The chamomile smells fresh! It has a light, clean smell to it that is a little floral and a little fruity.
The flavor is delicate and sweet, with hints of an apple-like taste. Although it is a flower, chamomile doesn’t really come across as floral in flavor to me, although I do note some pollen-like notes here. Not a dusty kind of pollen, but more like a sweet, honey-like pollen.
This gentle tisane is just perfect for those times when I need to relax. It’s an excellent chamomile!
