Chamomile is very soothing. But it’s a very basic tea. So, when I want a chamomile tea with a touch of fancy, Twinings Camomile & Spiced Apple Infusion does the trick. It’s a very comforting tea.
Infused for 4 minutes in 200 ml of boiling water, it’s apple-y with a hint of cinnamon, reminiscent of those good McDonald’s apple pies and without the sweetness. It’s also very easy to over steep, though, so it’s not one of those teabags you can just leave sitting in your mug until you finish drinking. Once over-infused, the chamomile and cinnamon notes overwhelm and leave an unpleasant bitterness to the tea. On the same note, though, it means that you can reuse the teabag for multiple infusions and still get a decent flavour.
This box of Twinings Camomile & Spiced Apple Infusion contained 10 tea bags. It was packed in Australia and purchased in Sydney, Australia in 2014.
