Ok, this is one from Sips by that I have been avoiding. I have a vague memory of trying plain mountain tea before and not liking it.

The tea itself is beautiful to look at. Fuzzy green budded stems mixed with whole yellow flowers. Petals and chamomiles stems. Lovely. Though the aroma doesn’t really appeal to me. I smell the chamomile, but it’s mostly covered by an odd minty herbal scent. And something that reminds me of apples that are starting to ferment.

I used 2 tablespoons and steeped them for 7 minutes, as the packet advised 5-10. It comes out to a medium yellowy green. There is a new sort of pungency to it that makes me a little nervous. Although, it doesn’t translate to the flavor. This mostly tastes like a disappointing chamomile. It doesn’t give me that clean, soothing feeling that pure chamomile does. There are apple notes and they’re ok, but this just isn’t what I want it to be.

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. Living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, electronic music geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

After 10 years on Steepster, I have given up. The lack of maintenance, updates, and mobile compatibility have finally discouraged me. I still use my Cupboard and add teas to the database, but I won’t be logging teas anymore.
