Cotswold Health Chamomile Tea
German Chamomile is an annual; it grows to a height of approximately 60cm with a spread of 10cm. The flowers are about 20-25cm in diameter, white with conical yellow centres. The leaves are bright green, very finely cut and highly aromatic.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that you can combine chamomile and peppermint teas to make a soothing tea blend that can help soothe the nerves, relax the mind and as a bonus the blend can also help ease digestion? Mix 80g dried chamomile flowers with 20g dried peppermint leaf and add 1 teaspoon of the mix per cup required to a teapot or infuser and pour on boiling water. Leave the tea to brew for 5 minutes, then strain and pour into a cup, sweeten with honey and serve.
Chamomile tea is a pleasant caffeine free tea substitute which has a floral aroma and a fresh mildly fruity flavour with bitter notes; it’s a soothing tea that can be drunk before bedtime. To make a mug of chamomile tea add 1-2g of the tea to a teapot or infuser - depending on how strong you like your tea – and pour over enough fresh boiling water as required. Strain into a mug, sweeten with preferred sweetener e.g. honey and serve. Serve without milk, chamomile tea can also be served chilled like ice tea.
The tea can also be used to make syrup, jam, jelly and alcoholic beverages.
The tea can also be used as a hair rinse to lighten blonde hair, and added to a facial steam to help cleanse the skin of impurities.
Ingredients: Dried flowers of Matricaria chamomilla.
