“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Tea Bags „
I love a good cup of tea but sometimes I just fancy something a little different to try out. I'm not a huge fan of camomile tea however at the time I spotted this on a Tesco shelf priced at £1.39 for 20 teabags, knowing that camomile is meant to be a calming flower I decided after all the stress that I have been under lately that they were worth a trial run.
The bags come in a mainly white box with camomile flowers to the front and to the back of it and on both of the main sides of the box we are told that they are Tesco Camomile Infusion Teabags and that are 20 bags within the box and that they weigh 300g in total. Other information on the box includes being told how to make a tea up, the ingredients used are listed (100% camomile leaves) and contact details for Tesco are given. Inside the box the bags are within a silver foil bag to keep them fresh and all in all this is nice packaging and doesn't look one bit cheap or anything like that.
Well the bags are white, round and made of rather thick white paper with perforated holes all over it and you can see mashed up green and yellow leaves within it though the bags are only half full of the leaves and rather flat really.
To use the bag you simply pop one in a cup or mug whatever and allow it to brew for between 2-5 minutes (depending on the strength you want it) and then you can drink this plain or with milk or however you prefer really.
What you get is a floral sort of tea that tastes very natural indeed. You get a murky green sort of drink that is transparent and it smells as well as tastes of camomile. This is unsweetened but it is naturally so and it is watery and not all that strong in taste even if you let it stew for well over the recommended 5 minutes brewing time.
If you like camomile and you like decent quality then this isn't bad really. It doesn't scum or anything like that and its simply alright! Me, I'm still not loving the camomile but do prefer the richer Twinnings offering on the market to be honest!
Only available in Tesco stores.
