chamomilecitrusmightyleaf.jpgMaybe I'm alone here, but some herbs and chemicals hit me hard. Chamomile for most is a mild relaxant. For me, an out-and-out coma-inducer. If I'm having a restless night , one 16-ounce cup o' chamo will knock me back into Elysium.

The first tea I ever tried some six years ago was a simple Bigelow chamomile blend. My brother told me about the stuff after he read it in a gnome book. (You heard right.) One night, while working a graveyard shift, I opted for some chamomile; unaware of its relaxant properties. I almost fell asleep on the job.

I'm a genius.

Since then, I've used it as a capper. Not all the time, just some - given it's tonic-like properties. Later I discovered that there were different locales for chamomile. The most common being the Roman kind, the second being Egyptian. I sampled some of the latter at a Teavana and wasn't wholly impressed with it. There was something old and "off" about the smell. Tasted pretty foul, too.

It probably lacked a good compliment. Sometimes chamomile can stand on its own floral feet, but other times it may need a blending. A common one I've found is orange peel. The two flavors stand side-by-side swimmingly. Mighty Leaf presents a rather compelling blend for its own Chamomile Citrus offering. Ingredients include rosehips, orange peels, chamomile flowers, lemongrass, lemon myrtle, nana mint, hibiscus flowers, natural citrus flowers, and the always-eyebrow-raising "natural flavors".

The sample I had was the bagged variety, so naturally I treated it as such - brought water to a boil, stuck the bag in and waited. This one was a slow-steeper. Took a while 'til the water started to color, a little past five minutes. Once ready, the liquor was a pale orange and smelled like hot cider. This was a first, but lemongrass and lemon myrtle were the supreme flavors here. The citrus and chamomile aspects were runner-ups. I didn't mind the subtlety of the citrus, since the tart and tangy bites were what I was betting on. Complimented my midnight Carl's Jr. run perfectly.

...What?

    I cannot say that I hate chamomile tea, but my past experiences have been limited. I’ve had chamomiles that tasted like hot water with a faint spritz of hay seed. Back when I was in college there was the dreaded proffering of Celestial Seasonings Chamomile by those who took their earthy, hippy status seriously. Fortunately, tea has come a long way since then.

    Mighty Leaf has me jonesing for more.

    I just got a variety pack of Might Leaf tea-bags and decided to accompany “The Amazing Race” with a nice soothing tea. I decided, quite staunchly, that I was going to get the chamomile out of the way.

    First I had to admire the tea bag. I imagined an artisan lovingly crocheting the string with a tiny crochet hook. As the tea brewed, citrus emerged. The typical old hayseed odor never appeared.

    I was starting to get alert and to pay attention to this tea. I had regarded it as a chore to be endured and I now felt that I had arrived at the “sens de la visite” as French signs point out tourist attractions.

    Mighty Leaf has concocted an impressive mélange of flavors to support whatever the essence of chamomile is. I still remain uncertain what was the chamomile–maybe the supporting cast is the star here. The citrus is strong, vibrant, but not a bit brash.

    I made an immediate note to promote this Chamomile Citrus to full-time status at my house and to adopt it as a favorite evening child. I know that I really like this tea because I’m already slightly nervous that I only have one tea-bag left and the stores do not open for another 7 hours. I’m a convert!
