Tazo - Calm
I will say right now that, despite my love of herbal teas, I'm not a
chamomile drinker. Well, to be specific, it's not that I
dislike chamomile; just that I don't ever drink it. This is
only the second one that I've ever tried. The first was long
enough ago that all I remember about it was that I didn't like it.
But, I got a gift basket
of Tazo teas for Christmas, and Calm was included. So, I decided
to give it a shot.
I'm somewhat neutral on this
tea. The two main flavors I picked up were mint (somewhat mild),
and what I assume is the chamomile. (I can't think of anything to
liken it to, so I won't try to describe it.) And it was...okay.
I didn't have any trouble drinking the whole cup, but at the same time,
I don't really see myself ever going for my teapot with a craving for
this. It was fairly good, though...if I was in the right mood, or
if it was just what I had, I'd drink it again. And I will say that
if you like chamomile, you may be a bit more enthusiastic about this one
than I was.
In short: Decent
chamomile tea. Not something I'd go out of my way for, but nice
