Episode 127: Chamomile Lemon

You know how I feel about chamomile. By itself, I’m not a fan of its honeyed apple sweetness. It usually does good paired with other flavors, and this chamomile lemon from Numi Organic Tea is no exception.

The zing of lemon myrtle cuts right through the chamomile to create a really satisfyingly sweet cup of tea that’s perfect for bedtime. Brew this up and have a lemon drop in your cup!

Episode 154: Caribbean Calypso Maté

Ayyyy mon! I think this may be one of the last Teavana blends in my collection! (I can hear you rejoicing.) This is a really tasty blend I had squirreled away called Caribbean Calypso Maté — a blend of maté, lemongrass, coconut, mango, pineapple, and ginger.

The maté gives a bit of vegetal sweetness that’s accented by the lemongrass, and the coconut and other fruits meld together into a light and flavorful cup of tea. Refreshing and energizing! Teavana doesn’t sell this blend anymore, but the Piña Colada Mango Maté from Totalitea looks like a good substitute.

Episode 164: Chamomile Fruit

Oh joy…another chamomile. This blend from Just Add Honey blends together the plain Jane of herbal teas with lemon myrtle, honeybush, citrus peel, lemongrass, licorice root, and stevia leaf.

It sounds like a lot of inclusions, but they all come together to make a pretty pleasant cup of tea. The honeybush and citrus cuts through the usual apple honeyed sweetness of chamomile, and the licorice root gives an interesting aftertaste. I like it!

Episode 224: Pink Rose Lemonade

Jackie and the good folks over at The Tea Spot sent over a great assortment of teas for me to try, and I decided to sample their Pink Rose Lemonade first. It’s a fragrant blend of rose petals, lemongrass, chamomile, spearmint, and lavender, along with some citrus flavors provided by orange peel and lemon balm.

This is a very relaxing and calming tea! The combination of lemongrass and spearmint is fruity and naturally sweet, and the other components round out the rest of the blend pretty nicely. It’s a great tea to have in your collection!
