Need to take a Chill Pill to calm you down? This infusion is full of Vitamin C, antioxidants, and the wonderful soothing benefits of high quality herbs. You’ll love the orange / chamomile flavor that’s sure to calm you down on your stressful days, and help slip you off into sweet dreams at night.
This is a very pleasant blend from Compass Teas. If you’re like me, you cringe at the thought of chamomile. As I’ve confessed before, I used to really dislike chamomile, but, I have developed an appreciation for it. I still don’t like the chamomile dust that is sometimes found in substandard tea bags from the local grocery store, but, in whole leaf blends like this one from Compass Teas, the whole chamomile blossoms are quite agreeable.
In fact, if I hadn’t read the ingredients and saw the chamomile blossoms in the blend when I measured it into my smart tea maker, I wouldn’t have known that this is a chamomile tisane! The flavor of the chamomile is quite soft and melds almost seamlessly with the citrus flavors of this blend.
The overall flavor of this tea is quite mild and in keeping with the “Chill Pill” kind of attitude. I previously reviewed this tea, and I am finding it every bit as enjoyable now as I once did.
This is a nice alternative to those who are looking for a soothing, relaxing tisane before bedtime but think they don’t like chamomile!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
