Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t over-boil water - Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time. Leaves can be re-steeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Chamomile is a great relaxer. Taken before bed will often result in an easy transition into sleep and a restful night.
Chamomile is one of the most popular herbs in the world, and the most prominent way this herb is enjoyed is by infusing it with hot water to create an herbal tea. Chamomile is a member of the aster family and is one of the safest herbs out there. This plant’s roots stem from Ancient Egypt, which is why it is often referred to as Egyptian Chamomile. Records show that the first mention of Chamomile was in a document called the Ebers Papyrus, which dates back to 1550 BC. In Ancient Egypt, Chamomile was used to honor the gods, embalm the dead, and cure the ill.
There are two types of Chamomile: Roman and German. Roman chamomile originates from Western Europe and North Africa and blooms in late spring or early July. German chamomile was used to make beer, and is from western Asia.
