Thumbs up!"The ingredients taste pretty fresh and of a decent quality. I would have like this to have offered up a bit more vanilla in the flavor profile, but it is worth consideration regardless"

teafortechamomile"A calming chamomile tisane with a delicate fruit finale. Chamomile flowers, orange peel and vanilla steep a mild, yet satisfying brew."---Tea Forte website.

This is the last of the samples that I was fortunate to get the opportunity to try from Tea Forte. While the results were somewhat mixed, they were overall pretty good and several of their blends received high scores from me I particularly enjoyed their Coco Truffle, Raspberry Nectar and Ginger Pear blends. In the event that this is first review of Tea Forte's products that you are reading, Tea Forte is known for these pyramid shaped silken infusers that are quite clever and unique. If the cute little infusers don't do it for you, they also offer many of their blends in loose form as well.

I think the reason that this is the last sample from Tea Forte to be reviewed is because chamomile is such a strong flavor that I kind of have to be in the mood for it---especially when it is the dominating ingredient. My cute pyramid infuser does indicate that is the case as it is loaded with chamomile and just a few orange peels. The aroma coming from the dry infuser is primarily of chamomile but there is a touch of citrus as well. I infused my pyramid for 5 min in water that was cut just short of boiling. The prepared cup is actually is better than I was expecting. While chamomile does dominate the flavor profile, it tastes is of a nice mild smooth chamomile. The orange makes its appearance on the finish and you can taste it most as the liquid leaves your mouth. There is just enough orange in this to give this interest and make it something more special than a straight chamomile blend. You have to REALLY concentrate to taste the vanilla in this blend, It is hiding in the background giving this just a touch of creaminess. If this were to be tweaked, then I would want a touch more vanilla.

All in all, this is very nicely done night time blend. While chamomile dominated tisanes tend to be a bit boring to me, this one is really quite good. In fact, it is one of the better chamomile dominated tisanes that I have tried. The ingredients taste pretty fresh and of a decent quality. I would have like this to have offered up a bit more vanilla in the flavor profile, but it is worth consideration regardless.
