A couple of weeks ago, I won a giveaway contest by Cuppa Crew. My prize? A sample of their Egyptian Chamomile tea! Coming from someone who has a really hard time getting to sleep at night, this tea was a bit of a godsend.
Chamomile tea is actually an herbal tisane, meaning that it doesn't actually contain any tea leaves at all even though we do refer to it as a tea. That also means that it's caffeine free! It's great for restlessness, stress, and stomach aches. If you're feeling anxious and out of sorts, then this tea is a great one to have on-hand.
Most of the chamomile teas I've tried have tasted vaguely like Fruit Loops to me. Yes, the cereal. It's a bit odd. This chamomile is actually the first loose-leaf one I've had; and, let me tell you, the difference is astounding. First of all, there is no fruit loop-y taste I've come to expect from chamomile teas. It's more floral than the ones I'm used to drinking- more floral in a very good way. It's still sweet. It has a bit of a honeyed taste to it without adding any honey, and I like it.
This tea definitely relaxed me... I slept all night for the first time in a very long time!
I definitely recommend this tea if you're looking for a nice, relaxing herbal.
