There is one thing for sure: this is not dust in a bag. You can see that when first opening the pouch. And smell it, too! This herbal consists of actual chamomile (also “chamomile”) flower heads, so fresh in appearance, aroma, and flavor that hubby and I were ready for a trip down the Nile.
For those of you used to those dust-in-bag brands (we’ve been drinking Twinings, but there are lots of others out there) and have decided that chamomile is not for you, try this one. The steeped liquid is a beautiful yellow and has a rich flavor without any bitterness but is still definitely chamomile. A few sips and you’ll be feeling relaxed. I certainly was, enough so that I had to have a cuppa a rich Assam tea loaded with caffeine to spark me back up.
