Celestial Seasonings Chamomile Herbal Tea Review

A rather poor tasting chamomile tea that has a nasty after-taste

Summary : A chamomile tea that had poor taste and an even worse after-taste. Avoid if all possible.

Review : I do like chamomile teas, despite my love of stronger, more "potent" teas. You see, every tea has its place. A chamomile tea is meant to be relaxing, soothing, a stress reliever. And a good chamomile tea will even have a nice, light sweet flavor to it. In other words, it's not painful to drink. And, last but not least, the tea should have a weak, short-lasting, but pleasant after-taste. For these reasons, Chamomile Teas are popular as "bedtime teas" and "break teas" during hectic and stressful periods.

Well, that's the way a chamomile tea SHOULD be. Unfortunately, the Chamomile Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings fits neither of these categories.

First, the tea itself has a rather odd, and somewhat unpleasant flavor. Don't ask me to describe it - as I can't. It was nothing like I tasted before.

Perhaps even worse, the tea, once brewed, had a very unpleasant aroma to it - basically, it smelled like something "burnt." While water can't burn, I suspect this tea comes about as close as possible to emulating "burnt water."

Secondly, unlike a traditional chamomile tea, this version from Celestial Seasonings has a nasty after-taste. Thankfully, it isn't a long-lasting after-taste. But still, after drinking this rather poor tasting and foul smelling tea, who wants any after-taste at all? And unfortunately, this tea has one and its not especially pleasant.

So, chamomile tea lovers of the word beware. This is far from the greatest chamomile tea ever made.

Recommendation : No. And I can't honestly recommend this tea to anybody except for those that love chamomile tea in any and all forms, not because of the taste or aroma or flavor is good, but simply because it's a "chamomile tea."
