Smell this.

Richard <holding an open but empty packet of Chamomile under Naomi's nose>: Do you smell honey?

Naomi <sniffing>: Yeah.

Richard <walking away>: Okay.

Naomi <watching Richard walk away>: What did you need me to tell you?

Richard <pouring hot water over his Chamomile in the kitchen>: Nothing.

Naomi: Huh?

Richard: It smells like honey, and apples. And there's no straw-smell. Now that's good Chamomile.

Camomile we don't like, on the left, looks and smells like straw. Ours, on the right, contains full chamomile flowers.
