Review of Morrisons Pure Camomile Tea

As a lady who enjoys her cups of tea on a daily basis I am always on the lookout for new teas to try. I am really enjoying my renewed quest to find new caffeine free teas to try. One of my favourite teas at the moment is camomile. So when someone at work bought some Morrisons camomile tea to share I just had to give it a try.

I liked the design of the packaging with this tea. I personally found the yellow colour theme with a variety of yellow and white swirls to be calming. The tea is described as being a golden infusion with fragrant camomile flowers.

Onto the ingredients 100% camomile is listed. There are no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed. On opening the box the teabags were in a sealed foil packaging. This is always a positive trying to keep the tea fresh and seal the both flavour and aroma in. On opening the foil packaging I was immediately hit with a stronger than expected grassy aroma that I associate with camomile tea. On my close up sniff test this aroma intensified. This was significantly weaker on sniffing an individual teabag, but was still present.

I placed the teabag in my cup and added my freshly boiled hot water. The hot water soon changed to a golden yellow colour. On infusing the tea it immediately produced a faint subtle grassy aroma that I associate with camomile tea. I have to admit this took me by surprise as this has not been the case with other everyday camomile teas that I have tried. On sipping the tea it had a light mellow taste subtle grassy undertones noted. The flavour was stronger than I had experienced with other everyday camomile teas and made for a very pleasant change. I also found it to be slightly soothing on the stomach which is always a bonus for me. Overall it was a light and refreshing tea.

So would I recommend this tea? Definitely I enjoyed everything about this tea from its aroma through to its flavour. It is one of the nicest everyday camomile teas that I have tried. I shall be buying this tea when I next visit Morrisons. So thank you Morrisons for producing an enjoyable an everyday camomile tea that I can enjoy.

    I’m not a Camomile fan but I do like a good tea, Earl Grey or Peppermint are my tipple. #Best&Worst

      Yes camomile can be an acquired taste. You can’t beat a nice earl grey or peppermint tea.

        It sounds so good for you though, perhaps I should work at acquiring the taste!

          It’s certainly worth persevering hopefully you will then like it.

      Hi, it’s certainly a nice caffeine free alternative.

    I’ve never had this before, I must try it! #bestandworst

      Hi, it’s certainly worth trying especially if you want to reduce that caffeine intake, Chloe.

    Can’t drink chammomile because of IBS but I do love a good cup of Chai!

    • March 16, 2017 / 7:52 pm

      Yes I didn’t realise until recently that IBS and camomile don’t go together. At least you can enjoy a nice cup of chai.

    I love chamomile tea! I current drink the twinnings one which is so tasty. I’ve never tried any of the Morrisons tea but they sounds pretty good 💖

    • March 16, 2017 / 7:53 pm

      Hi, you should give it a try it’s a good price. I think I may prefer it to Twinings.

  8. March 16, 2017 / 5:17 pm

    I used to drink chamomile tea quite a lot as it helped me focus, but that was a long time ago although this review makes me want to try it out again! It’s amazing how good the quality is too, especially as it’s not one of those fancy tea brands.

    • March 16, 2017 / 7:53 pm

      I hope that you like this one it’s worth giving it a try.

    I am obsessed with Camomile tea! I drink it every single night! So great to prepare yourself for bed! This one looks fab too! I’ll have to try it out! xx Corinne

    • March 16, 2017 / 7:54 pm

      Yes it’s a great tea before bed. I have it most afternoons as well. I hope you like this one.

    Haven’t had camomile tea in forever – it always used to be a part of my night routine!

      Hi, you should perhaps give this one a try and make it part of your routine again.

    • March 16, 2017 / 7:56 pm

      Hi, it’s an acquired taste but this one is a great one to try as an introduction to the tea. I’m glad you love the teacup it was a gift from my mum for my tea reviews.

  11. March 16, 2017 / 5:50 pm

    I’m not a regular tea fan at all but I have never tried camomile tea, maybe I’ll give this one a try!

    • March 17, 2017 / 5:26 pm

      Hi, it’s a nice caffeine free tea but does have a slightly acquired flavour. This is a nice introduction to the tea.

      Hi Charlotte it might be worth giving it a try and it’s a good price so you won’t break the bank if you don’t like it.

      Hi, it’s certainly worth giving it a try as it’s good value for money as well as tasting nice, Chloe.

    I’m not a tea drinker, I prefer coffee but your review makes me want to try it! Thanks for linking up #bestandworst

    • March 21, 2017 / 7:27 am

      Hi, I’m the opposite and dislike coffee. It is a nice tea to try that won’t break the bank, Chloe.

  15. March 28, 2017 / 9:11 pm

    I don’t think I’ve ever tried it, so I’ll have to give it a go #dreamteam

    • March 29, 2017 / 5:39 am

      Hi, it’s worth giving it a try especially as it’s a cheap tea.

  16. April 3, 2017 / 2:42 pm

    I love a nice camomile tea. It has such a soothing quality. Like a hug in a mug. Thanks for sharing with #DreamTeam x

    • April 4, 2017 / 5:52 pm

      That’s the perfect description for this tea. Thanks for stopping by, Chloe.
