Review of Steep Chamomile Citrus Herbal Tea

5 of 103 of 52 of 543 of 100

The dry tea smells like lemons and the first ingredient is lemongrass, so I was expecting a much more lemony flavor than I'm getting. The flavor is mostly chamomile with a sort of far-off whiff of lemon peel. I'm curious about the lemongrass because the flavor's normally more pronounced when it's an ingredient. It's almost like they specifically wanted something as filler, so they used stale lemongrass. The effect here is pretty much that there's just less chamomile in your cup.

The bit of citrus is nice, but I think I'd prefer a bit of lemon peel or oil with otherwise uncut chamomile. As it is, I feel like I'm only getting half of a normal chamomile tea bag.

I've had an opportunity to try a number of Steep branded teas over the last few days and I've been rather impressed with most of them, but this one's an exception.
