About Chamomile Blends

Photo by Brandon Giesbrecht, © Brandon Giesbrecht, CC BY 2.0
A lot of herbal blends marketed as "chamomile" also contain numerous other ingredients. When buying teas, check the ingredient list if you are unsure whether a given product is pure chamomile or a blend containing other herbs.

This category of chamomile blend is for herbal blends that have chamomile as the primary ingredient, are named "chamomile", or have chamomile as the dominant note in the aroma, but also contains other herbs or ingredients. It is common for companies to sell such blends under the name of "chamomile" or "chamomile tea". We have a separate category for pure chamomile teas, including no other ingredients.

Many herbal teas contain chamomile as a minor ingredient among many different herbs; these we list in the general herbal tea category.

Common blending ingredients or flavorings

Chamomile blends are common and diverse. Ingredients and flavors commonly blended with chamomile include mints (both spearmint and peppermint), lemon or other citrus, lemon-scented herbs such as lemongrass or lemon verbena, various other fruits, or other flowers.

Pure chamomile tea often has a fruity aroma and a muted flavor with a bitter aftertaste. The ingredients blended with the chamomile are often chosen both to mitigate the bitterness in the finish, to give the blend a little more bite up-front, and to blend well with the aromas, complementing or synergizing with the fruity qualities.

Medicinal uses: effects on sleep and relaxation

Many chamomile blends are specifically marketed for the supposed relaxing or sleep-inducing properties of chamomile. Blends with chamomile as the dominant ingredient likely have similar effects to the pure herb; commonly, other herbs with similar effects are also blended. We review these properties as pertaining to pure chamomile on our page on chamomile tea and sleep, and you can find information about other relaxing herbs in our article on herbs and herbal teas for anxiety.

Directions say, "2 tea bags in a cup". While I appreciate the manufacturer's forthrightness in admitting one bag isn't enough to fill out the flavor, I also must ask, why, especially as expensive as a standard box is to start? How about simply dosing one bag with the full recommended pile of plant material instead? ...

Sweet Dreams Herbal Tea from Bigelow Tea

I've had a few knockoffs of this lately, so I figured I'd review the real thing. Sweet Dreams is basically chamomile tea for people that don't like chamomile. When dry, the dominant aroma is spearmint. After steeping, it's a subdued mintiness with a bit of cinnamon and citrus.

The flavor complements the aroma and se...

This is ALDI's recreation of Bigelow Sweet Dreams. The balance is a bit different, but the same flavors are there.

The profile is chamomile and mint. The dominant mint is spearmint rather than peppermint and there's a little bit of sourness from the hibiscus. The menthol coolness appears in the finish along with som...

This tea gave me some peculiar impressions before ever pouring a drop down my throat. The dry-bag smell brought back vague yet unwelcome childhood memories of illness, and it took me a minute to figure out why. The dry aroma reminded me much of the 1970s formulation of Kaopectate diarrhea medicine—then a dense, sli...

Enchanting Moments from Farmer Brothers

Feb. 5th, 2019

I'm stuck in a hotel for few days for a conference, but the bright side is finding a brand of food service teas that I've never tasted.

I decided to make a cup of Enchanting Moments before bed. It's a spot-on mimic of Bigelow's Sweet Dreams herbal tea. The main flavors are chamomile, peppermint and spearmint.
