What You'll Need:

  • Chamomile flowers (dried is fine, newly harvested is best!)

  • Nearly-boiling water

  • Tea cup or mug

  • Tea ball or infuser

  • Strainer (optional)

How to Make Your Chamomile Tea

1. Heat your tea water just to the boiling point.

2. While the water is heating, add fresh or dried chamomile to your tea ball or infuser. Then set the teaball/infuser into your teapot or cup.

3. Pour the near-boiling water into your teacup or mug. Cover with a lid or saucer. Now, allow your tea to steep for 5-7 minutes.

4. Remove the tea ball or infuser from your cup, and set it aside. 

Your tea is ready to sip. Easy as can be!

Chamomile Tea Brewing Tips

For each cup of water, use 2 teaspoons of fresh chamomile flowers or one teaspoon of dried. Adjust the amount of herbs to your personal taste.

Avoid using too-hot water. Fresh chamomile blossoms are too delicate to handle water that's at a "rolling boil".

The delicate, apple-y flavor of chamomile tea is perfect "as-is". If you'd like it sweeter, stir in a little bit of honey.

Chamomile is super-easy to grow, and its lightly fruity taste blends beautifully with many other tea herbs.
