Let’s make Chamomile Tea!
Welcome to the wonderful world of herbs at Heart of Herbs Herbal School. We’re excited to embark on this herbal journey together! Today, let’s kick things off with a simple and soothing recipe for Chamomile Tea. Making chamomile tea is a simple and enjoyable process. Here’s a basic recipe for brewing chamomile tea:
1 chamomile tea bag or 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried chamomile flowers
1 cup of hot water
Optional: Honey, lemon, or mint for added flavor
Bring water to a boil. You can use a kettle, microwave, or stovetop.
Prepare Tea Bag or Chamomile Flowers
If you’re using a chamomile tea bag, place it in your cup. If you have loose chamomile flowers, use a tea infuser or place the flowers directly into the cup.
Pour Hot Water
Pour the hot water over the tea bag or chamomile flowers in your cup.
Steep the Tea
Let the chamomile steep in hot water for about 5- 30 minutes. If you prefer a more robust flavor, you can steep it for a little longer, but be mindful not to over-steep, as it may result in a bitter taste. A medicinal tea will be steeped for 20 minutes.
Remove the Tea Bag or Strain
If you use a tea bag, remove it from the cup. Using loose chamomile flowers, use a strainer to separate the flowers from the liquid. You can press the flowers gently with a spoon to extract more flavor.
Sweeten with Honey: Add honey to taste if you prefer a sweeter tea.
Enhance with Lemon: Squeeze a wedge of lemon into the tea for a citrusy kick.
Add Mint Leaves: Fresh mint leaves can be a refreshing addition.
Sip and enjoy your homemade chamomile tea. It’s perfect for relaxation and can be enjoyed hot or cooled over ice.
Use high-quality chamomile tea bags or dried chamomile flowers for the best flavor.
Adjust the steeping time based on your taste preferences.
Experiment with optional additions to find your favorite combination.
Chamomile tea is a delicious and comforting beverage that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. Whether you’re winding down in the evening or looking for a soothing break during the day, chamomile tea is a versatile and delightful option.
