Though tagged here as retired, it seems McCormick has unretired it, for as of late October 2019, it is available in 10- or 25-count boxes on Amazon, and the web presences of big brick-and-mortar store chains like Wal-Mart, Safeway, Kroger and H-E-B. I got some in person at a regional Oklahoma chain today, for a little over two bucks, in the Hispanic foods section (this version is made in Mexico and has bilingual labeling). Good thing I found it too, as we almost were out of pure chamomile tea, and I usually can find some fairly inexpensively in-store somewhere.

So how is it? The dry bag is small—a pouch about 1.5 x 1.5 inches horizontally—but sealed in an individual plastic wrapper, with a very strong chamomile aroma that hints at what's to come. The in-cup color is clear and golden, as you'd expect with pure chamomile. The taste is a sweet, rich, creamy, buttery, quite delicious variety of the herb that clearly has been well-grown and -selected. I was surprised at the high quality. Regardless of the seemingly small dry-bag volume, the wet bag fluffs up nicely, pillow-like, with no wasted space. Despite leaving a lot of flavor in-cup, the wet bag still has a rich aroma making it worth breathing through. I hope McCormick doesn't really discontinue this product; it's probably the best chamomile tea I've had.
