I used to hate chamomile tea. Couldn’t stand the smell or the taste. Somewhere along lhe line in my adulthood, I began to tolerate it and can understand why it’s a good bedtime brew. I do find it soothing and relaxing and the taste is smooth and unassuming. This one is a tad odd though, in that I couldn’t really taste anything except the chamomile. No creamy vanilla and no sweet honey. There is a touch of something sweet but I certainly can’t tell if it’s honey or not. It felt like I was drinking a plain ol’ cup of chamomile tea. I would’ve rated this higher had the other flavours been detectable but I am totally fine with it tasting like plain chamomile. The flavour is good regardless and I’ll keep drinking any kind of chamomile tea while insomnia continues to haunt me.

Flavors: Chamomile, Floral, Sweet

I’ve never had any luck getting sleepy on tea alone, but the closest I’ve come to an herb that relaxes me is tulsi, if you’ve never given that a go.

Thanks for the tip! Ya I don’t think the tea worked on its own, I ended up taking a Lorazepam as well. Even though I absolutely hate taking prescription drugs (I’m a holistic kind of guy), I slept very well last night.

Bio

I’ve been a member of Steepster since 2014 and decided to finally update my ancient Bio now that it’s 2022.

I’ve loved tea my entire life, since I was a kid. Starting with Orange Pekoe, then Irish Breakfast, Rosehip, Earl Grey, Green and White and now, I’ll drink or at least try, just about any tea.

One of my favourite things to do is meeting my friends at the coffee shop, sitting and sipping for hours while we chat and laugh and enjoy each other. We try to do this at least once a week or when our work schedules match up. Tea and coffee brings people together!

I live in Ontario, Canada and work at a Winners/Homesense combo store.
I have a 12 year old cat, Tucker, who is diabetic and asthmatic (and completely toothless) but still enjoys his life to the fullest and he truly is the sweetest boy.

I don’t always post every single time I drink tea, I’m kind of sporatic that way but I do enjoy reading what you all are drinking and your reviews.

Covid hasn’t been easy, sending love out to all of you. Stay safe and healthy!
