SPOILER ALERT! I really don’t like chamomile… Before tasting this I felt stuck between a tea I hate and a brand I love.

It’s very much a chamomile aroma, with the spicy scent of fennel that reminds me of health food stores, it’s not a bad smell, I know people who enjoy it, but it reminds me of headaches! The first sip has a sour, metallic, aniseed-like tingle, (which I enjoyed! YAY!) and then drifts into the cottony-honey flavour of chamomile. Chamomile just isn’t for me (don’t be surprised! I literally told you already!) BUT! I got through the cup, or enough of it to count, so that’s progress on a cup of straight chamomile at least! Not sure if I should be thanking Edgcumbes or apologising!?

Meh: Green tea, puerh, matcha.
