Ost’s stash sale.
I’m a fan of camomile tea, and I’ve been trying different varieties to find one I really like. For whatever reason, so far I prefer bagged camomile to loose. The loose tends to taste slightly more herbaceous and less floral than the bagged. Also the tiny petals are a pain to clean out of a strainer. This one is no exception, but it had a better than some of the others I’ve had. Not my favorite, but definitely enjoyable.
Flavors: Floral, Herbaceous
to be honest; chamomile tastes like freaky flowers :(
you want to try a nice tea that’s herbal? try kunlun mountain snow chrysanthemum flower tea from yunnan sourcing’s com site
Totally hear you on bagged vs loose chamomile. I really enjoy Celestial Seasonings’ Honey Vanilla Chamomile personally :)
I really like floral teas, so that’s not a problem for me. I do want to try snow chrysanthemum, it’s definitely on my list.
For some reason I don’t tend to like chamomile flavored or many chamomile-based blends. Honey Vanilla Chamomile was too sweet for me. One of the few I have enjoyed is Stash’s Cinnamon Apple Chamomile.
This is the third tea I got from my brother. And maybe the best one he picked out xD
I’ve had it twice now. The first time I drank it, it made me super relaxed and sleepy, which was nice. Was looking for the same effect tonight, but I didn’t get it :( I don’t know why sometimes chamomiles make me tired and then sometimes they don’t.
This chamomile is definitely way better than the one I got at Trader Joe’s. Like way better. It is fresh, sweet, doesn’t taste like there’s dust in it from age or anything. It’s just a really nice, calming chamomile tea. Though I do wish that I’d have better tea bags because somehow the tea gets out of the sachets I have, which doesn’t happen with even rooibos. Wish this one was already in tea bags…but hey, at least it makes me sleepy sometimes and it tastes sweet and fresh. Not bad! (:
Try brewing in the kettle or stovepot and then pouring through the strainer/filter/tea-ball. Bringing the chamomile to a boil and then letting it steep will give you a deeper and richer flavor anyway.
I also suspect that the reason it sometimes affects you and sometimes not is because sometimes it is under-brewed. If you bring it to a boil directly and let it stay warm will brewing for 5 or 10 minutes, it will always provide you with that authentic chamomile feeling you are looking for.
