I really enjoy chamomile. It is one of the few beverages that I can drink at night and have it actually help my sleep, rather than hinder it with caffeine. Having been around teas for a very long time, I have already made the mistake of calling things, like chamomile, teas. Therefore, I am here today to save you all from this same mistake. Cue canned audience clapping. In short, chamomile, and any sort of herb or plant infusion is called a "tisane." The term "herbal tea" is a misnomer, as most "herbal teas" do not contain actual tea.
Mighty Leaf Tea recommends steeping this tea for five minutes,
though because of the composition, if one were to accidentally (or
intentionally) leave this tea for a longer period of time, no harm would
be done or unpleasant flavors gained. My five minutes of waiting being
over, I move on to breathe in the succulent aroma...of oranges. The
oranges have taken precedence in the scent of this brew! Hints of the
other ingredients are present, though more subtle.
On to the drinking! In the flavor, the flowers and the orange peel
are at the forefront. The orange is more of an undertone, while flowers
and the ever-present strains of chamomile tantalize the taste buds. If
one is looking for a simple cup of relaxation, this may not be the blend
to which to turn. On the other hand, if a fun drink with lots of flavor and no caffeine is desired, look no further. I thought it to be a
definitely tasty brew and would rate it at an 83/100 on my personal
