How to Make Chamomile Tea - 
A Simple, Tasty Recipe

Making chamomile tea is much like making any other herbal tisane... very simple, with deliciously wonderful, healthful results. This chamomile tea recipe can be made with a chamomile teabag, loose-leaf chamomile tea, or loose, dried chamomile blossoms.  

You'll need...

  • 1 chamomile teabag or 1 heaping teaspoon loose-leaf chamomile tea or dried chamomile flowers
  • 8 oz. (about 250 ml) fresh, delicious water, brought just to the boil
  • Optional additions to taste, such as honey, lemon, or mint

We love chamomile tea!

Did you know... Over one million cups of chamomile tea are consumed around the world each day. 

To make the tea...

  1. Add the teabag or loose-leaf tea to a favorite cup or mug (for loose tea, an infuser or infuser mug is recommended).
  2. Cool the just-boiled water slightly (chamomile tea is best steeped in very hot - not boiling - water), and then add to the cup.
  3. Cover and steep the chamomile tea for 5 to 8 minutes (herbal teas tend to improve with longer steeping times to bring out their best flavor and fullest benefits).
  4. Remove the teabag or loose tea leaves.
  5. Optional - Add extras, like sweetener, lemon, or mint, if you wish (some organic honey is a tasty, nutritious addition to chamomile tea).

Now, all that's left to do is sit back, relax, and savor this cup of comforting, fragrant tea and its many wellness benefits.

This recipe increases well, so why not steep a nice pot of chamomile herbal tea to share with a friend or enjoy curled up with a treasured book? (Remember to add an extra teabag or teaspoon of loose tea "for the pot.") Good for you in so many ways...

Chamomile tea also blends beautifully with other teas. To change up your teatime, or if the flavor or aroma of chamomile tea on its own isn't appealing to you, try blending chamomile with another beneficial tea, such as green, peppermint, spearmint, hibiscus, or Rooibos tea
