Queue the pre-apocalyptical music. I am starting this blog post. If you haven’t noticed, Abby is the methodical dependable blogger & I’m the daydreaming creative. Left brained people should be paired with right brained people. If they can manage to not drive each other crazy, because they have no idea how the other’s mind works, they tend to make great teams. Anyway, on to the review.

When I first looked at Abby’s tea review list (Duh, she’s the one who makes a list of what we’ll review next) I have to say I was a bit disappointed. Unfortunately, chamomile is not my favorite. However, after reaching into the tea box I was pleasantly surprised to find a large see-through tea bag with large prices of herbs, red flakes, and small fluffy orange balls. This loose tea is gorgeous! As it was steeping I could really smell the citrus. Ok, maybe I will try the Chamomile.

This tea has lovely citrus notes blended with chamomile flavor. The two flavors are balanced well, so well in fact, that even though Chamomile isn’t my favorite I can honestly admit that I’m enjoying this tea. If you’re a chamomile drinker I imagine that you’ll enjoy this tea very much! With no caffeine, this is a great tea to end a day with. After seeing the quality ingredients in the tea bag I’ll make a point that we review another mighty leaf tea soon!

I couldn’t decide how to rate this because I don’t like chamomile… 3.5? 4? It is a nice tea, high quality, good flavor. In the end I decided 4 because it really is a nice tea. I bet a chamomile-lover may even give it a 5.

It’s true, Katie beat me to the punch on this review – how did that happen? She is right though, this tea is so pretty and smells wonderful as it steeps.  I’m also with Katie in that I’m not usually a big chamomile fan either.  Maybe we think more alike than we thought?  But with this blog we wanted to branch out and try new teas to ever expand our love of tea!

After downing my first cup, pretty quickly actually, I have to say that I really like this tea.  I found that the bright citrus toned down the chamomile flavors to an enjoyable and approachable mixing point.  And although I described the citrus as “bright” which I found it to be, the tea is very calming.  So the chamomile is still doing what it’s known best for – I’m already feeling more relaxed about this review 🙂

For chamomile lovers and for those who aren’t so sure about the distinctly flavored tea, this Mighty Leaf version is a good compromise.  That bold flavor is there, but is tamed by the citrus notes.  If you are curious about trying new teas, like Katie and I are, this is a good jumping-off point for you adventures in chamomile.
