drank Calm Chamomile by Tazo
1026 tasting notes

Nope nope nope. Can’t get the thought of lightly minty, medicinal-tasting chamomile fruit punch out of my head. I mean, I’m drinking it but making a sour face.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 295 ML

During my Master’s year I drank Chamomile tea multiple times every day for several months. Those days are long gone :D

That’s too bad you don’t like this one! I don’t notice a fruit flavor at all – just chamomile and mint, which I feel go nicely together. Differing tastes, I guess!

Togo: so a PhD in theoretical physics is more chill than the Master’s?

AJRimmer: I’m guessing the hibiscus didn’t mix well with the chamomile on my tastebuds. It really did remind me of fruit punch. Glad you like it, though!

Oh definitely! The Master’s program I did was the most intense year of my life by far :D

That reminds me of how I like mint, and I like hibi, but I couldn’t stand the Bigelow Mint Medley that mixed mint with hibi. Something about those two flavors together on my palate just went “Nope.”

Glad to hear it’s gotten easier for you, Togo :)

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
