Dec. 20th, 2016
Wow, the tea bag was exceptionally fresh smelling, with a rich, complex aroma suggestive of high-quality chamomile. The smell is fruity and pleasant, I find it very comforting.Read Full Review
Upon brewing, the tea bag gets a bit mushy or slimy, but besides that, this smells and tastes on the level of a high-quality, loose-leaf ba...

Served at my friend Fairleigh's house--thank you! This was surprisingly good, for a dollar store brand of tea bags. (You can buy this brand in dollar stores, typically for $1 a box.)Read Full Review
Brews up a relatively clear cup. Aroma was fruity and fresh, cup was quite flavorful, and lacked the bitter aftertaste that most ch...

This chamomile is beautifully aromatic, with a rich, warm fragrance. It's moderately fruity and there are less of the straw or hay tones that I notice in some chamomile.Read Full Review
The cup brews a light color and the flavor is a little less bitter than normal for how aromatic it is. There's a little sourness in the flavor to...

This simple looking teabag really surprised me, producing the cleanest, freshest chamomile tea I have tried yet, better than many loose-leaf offerings.Read Full Review
Aroma is typical of chamomile, fruity, with some tones of straw or hay, but this has a fresh quality, almost reminiscent of celery or parsley, and a cleaner flavor. ...

Aroma mostly of straw or hay, with some fruity / apple-like qualities. Full-bodied without being too heavy.Read Full Review
Overall though, slightly flat aroma.
I wasn't terrible impressed. But as is usually the case, the differences between this and other chamomiles I've sampled have been rather slight.

This is a classic chamomile, moderately fruity, but not the fruitiest I've tried. I steeped it for a very long time, but it did not become unpleasantly bitter, which is good. The differences between different batches of chamomile I've had are subtle, but I think this is among the better ones.Read Full Review
Sweeter and smoother ...

I've tried a lot of chamomile teas and there are usually only subtle differences between them. This one was above average for a chamomile tea from a tea bag, but only slightly so.Read Full Review
This chamomile I found to have a cleaner, clearer, lighter character, with less of the heavy, lingering bitter aftertaste. Slightly mor...

Clean tasting: there was little of the muted bitter aftertaste that I often find unpleasant, and little sourness. Slightly crisper than a typical chamomile. Aroma lighter and more floral than usual. Medium strength, perhaps a bit on the weak side.Read Full Review
Very pleasant and I would recommend this among loose chamomile tea...

Very weak for a chamomile, in spite of the generous quantity of leaf / flower that I used. I let this brew 7 minutes, and it was still on the thin side. However, I found that the flavor of this chamomile was more pleasing. It has a little bit of a more crisp quality to it, and less of the muted bitter aftertaste tha...Read Full Review

The teabag contains pretty fine dust--I can't see any whole flowers. Smoother, but blander than other chamomiles. Nothing really jumps out about this one. Slightly more floral, slightly sweeter, less of the muted bitter aftertaste...but not terribly complex or strong either.Read Full Review
Decent but unremarkable. I think I'd ...

I find this is among the better of the chamomiles you can buy in any supermarket, and also among the better Bigelow teas. Although the aroma is a bit weaker than some other brands, the aftertaste is cleaner and more pleasant. Very smooth flavor.Read Full Review

Less fruity and a little more grass or straw in the aroma when compared to other chamomile teas. A tiny bit of sourness in the aftertaste, but otherwise clean and fresh tasting. Definitely one of the better chamomile teas I've tried. Full-bodied and rich.Read Full Review
A bit on the expensive side, but not too unreasonable give...

Another typical chamomile tea; nothing to get excited about. I think this tea is a little more floral but less fruity than some. There's a little bit of the unpleasant muted sourness that plagues some chamomile teas. Enjoyable, but I've had better. Among celestial seanonings teas I much prefer the blends.Read Full Review

A typical and decent chamomile tea. Nothing really stands out...there's a little bit of the muted unpleasant aftertaste, and a hint of fruitiness in the aroma, a little bit of a straw-like flavor. Soothing. Not the best chamomile I've tried but certainly not the worst. Reasonably priced.Read Full Review
