I’m at JFK airport on my way to London, Paris, and Warsaw for work, so my tasting notes won’t be very frequent over the next two weeks. I hope to pop in and make notes of teas on the road though, and I’m planning on picking up tons of teas while abroad. Anyway, I grabbed a cup of tea from a cafe in the airport and though I was given only the descriptor of “chamomile”, I saw that the tea was this one (and that it was loose leaf and the cafe put it in a tea sac for steeping!)

Obviously I don’t know about the smell of the dried leaves, but I did see that I got quite a few whole chamomile blossoms in my steeping bag. Steepster on iPhone won’t let me rate it or put in steeping parameters, so I’ll edit the post later, but it steeped for a long time at boiling, and even though I’m not much of a chamomile person (options were severly limited), it’s a very nice, relaxing tea, that’s pretty sweet and has lots of the hay-like, alfalfa notes I often find in chamomiles. A nice way to relax before a flight

Boiling 8 min or more

sounds like quite the trip!

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
