Celestial Seasonings Chamomile Herbal
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
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."
