There is nothing like putting your nose in a brown paper bag filled with freshly dried chamomile flowers.
They smell a little bit like apple and remind me of spring meadows. Making the perfect Camomile Tea ensures you capture all those delicate aromas that can so easily escape your cup.
Here’s How to Make Your Perfect Cup of Chamomile Tea
Chamomile is packed with delicate volatile oils so it’s best made in a covered container like a teapot or a cup with a lid on it.
- Warm your teapot by filling it with boiling water. Leave the water in the pot for about half a minute while you get your chamomile off the shelf or out of the cupboard.
- Empty the water from the teapot and add a heaped tablespoon of chamomile flowers per person drinking the tea to the pot. We use a tablespoon per person because the flowers take up a lot of spoon space.
- Add just below boiling water to your pot. In practice, boil your water and leave to sit for about half a minute.
- Put the lid on the teapot or teacup and leave to sit for 5-10 minutes, depending on how strong you like your tea.
- Pour into your favourite mug.
- Sit somewhere comfortable. Inhale the delicious aromas coming from your cup and sip slowly.
Hint: chamomile tea is best when it’s drunk from your favourite cup!
