drank Three Chamomile by Pukka

Pukka Days of Christmas#20

This blend of 3 different types of chamonile might be a real treat for a lot of people, but for me it was a curse. I already mentioned that I consider a cup of chamomile tea more of a cure when having overeaten, but yesterday, that wasn´t the case and I started suffering from a lot of gasses after drinking this infusion. I have stomach problems, but this infusion caused a crisis which I don´t want to repeat every time I drink a tea, so no more of this for me, thank you. I don´t rate it either, as I´m sure my reaction to the tea is very personal and no real opinion of its quality and taste.

Flavors: Flowers, Straw

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more 1 g 8 OZ / 250 ML

Although I don’t have any stomach troubles with chamomile, it won’t me happy either. I hate it and don’t like the flavour at all.

well, I´ll be even less eager to have a chamomile tea from now on…good there are so many other (herbal) teas around!

Martin Bednář

True, so much true…

Ilse: Are you allergic to plants in the daisy family? I have heard chamomile can make you react if you are, and my daughter-in-law has a tough time with allergies and chamomile,

Ilse Wouters

Interesting point, ashmanra. I´m not aware of any food allergy (I “only” have a contact allergy ;-) ), but this was by far my worst experience with chamomile…so far!

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
