If I might say so myself my quest to reduce my caffeine intake is currently going fantastically well. One tea that I have been really surprised by is chamomile. So much so that I now have it on a daily basis. I have recently reviewed some Bluebird Tea co earl grey tea and loved it. So I thought it was about time I gave their chamomile tea a try.
I’m a sucker for packaging and although this was a small sample packet I was drawn in by the name. Dozy girl, now that is me to a tee if you can excuse the pun. Now onto the tea itself. It contains a mixture of chamomile, verbena, hibiscus, rose petals and lavender. No allergens are highlighted on the ingredients list but there is a may contain warning for nuts.
On opening the packet I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised. There was a strong grassy aroma coming from the teabags. This was accompanied by hibiscus and lavender. On having a good old fashioned close up sniff test this aroma intensified. I placed the tea leaves into my infuser in my cup and added the hot water. It didn’t take long for the tea to infuse with the water resulting in a pale red colour. On infusing the tea as instructed the aroma intensified. It produced a lovely grassy aroma that I associate with chamomile tea. This was accompanied by the hibiscus, citrus from the lemon and lavender. On sipping the tea it had a light mellow taste which was slightly grassy. This was then followed by the hibiscus and lavender hitting my taste buds. The tea was light and refreshing. It also had a nice soothing effect on my stomach. Did help me relax prior to going to bed or improve my sleep not really. But to be fair I didn’t expect it to.
So would I recommend this chamomile tea blend yes definitely. The aroma of this tea in the packaging is something special. You are able to clearly smell the ingredients before it is even infused with the hot water. As for the colour of the ingredients it’s just pretty and a worth a try for this alone. Oh and the flavour is spot on like the aroma I was able to distinguish the different elements to this tea. I found this to be refreshing yet soothing at the same time. It’s not going to last me long. I need to buy a large packet next time. So thank you Blue Bird Tea co for producing a delightful chamomile tea. I would go as far as to say it’s my favourite one so far that I have tried.
