Review of Tesco’s 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 I popped into my local Tesco’s I grabbed a box of their camomile tea to try.

I liked the pale blue colour of the packaging of this tea. Its swirl patterns are the same to that found on Tesco’s fruit and herbal teas. The tea is clearly marketed as being caffeine free. I personally liked there was no fancy description about the tea, just its flavour and that it is caffeine free.

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 there was a nice grassy aroma that I associate with camomile tea. On my close up sniff test this remained the same. 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 a nice everyday camomile tea. So thank you Tesco’s for producing an enjoyable an everyday camomile tea that I can enjoy.

      That’s a shame it is an acquired taste.

    Oh, I’m a huge tea fanatic. I <3 chamomile. Have you ever tried Lavander milk tea? It's amazing, I bought it at a Korean market and noticed that it has a similar calming effect.

      Oh lavender milk tea sounds delightful. I’ve not seen it here in the UK though.

    Hellooo! I’m a tea person too and I think I drink a different brand of Camomile Tea here in Asia. I must admit the teas here have enchanting aromas and flavour. Thanks for sharing this brand, I will surely look out for it.

    I have never tried camomile tea! I tend to go for builders’ tea instead 🙂 #bloggerclubuk

    • June 30, 2017 / 8:20 pm

      Nothing wrong with that you can beat a proper builders tea.

    Good review! I love the smell of chamomile but have never developed a taste for the tea. It’s one that I probably should experiment with, as it’s a very healthy herb.

      Hi, yes it can be a bit of an acquired taste. Thanks for the kind comments much appreciated.
