Best known therapeutic cure for insomnia, Chamomile tea is our favourite bedtime brew. Fluff your pillows, it's been a long day.
Ingredients: Pure whole flowers of Chamomile
Health Benefits: Caffeine-free, this tea is great for soothing sips through the day or at bedtime. Known to calm your colds and cramps, this healing tea boosts your nervous system. The antibacterial and antimicrobial properties can be very effective in treating colds and other infections, clearing skin irritations, and healing wounds.
Caffeine content: Zero
Origin of tea: Uttarakhand, India
Available as: 50g loose leaf
Taste notes: Balmy, Warm, Soothing. Be gentle in handling the flowers. The dust at the bottom is the pollen from the chamomile flower and completely safe to consume. It contributes to the flavour profile of the Chamomile.
Serving suggestions: Pairs well with a good book. We sipped ours with a Ruskin Bond. Best served warm with half a teaspoon of honey. You may also have it without any sweeteners, but never with milk.
Add 1 teaspoon or 1 tea bag per cup (150ml). Always pour hot water (80°C) on the tea leaves and not the other way around. Steep for 2-3 minutes. All our teas in tea bags or loose leaf can be rebrewed. Just add hot water and steep for longer than the first steep
Storage advice: Store in the foil pouch in the tea tin or transfer to an airtight container, kept in cool dark place.
If storing in the refrigerator/ freezer, pack in small completely airtight packets or jars. Before use, wait for the tea to reach room temperature to prevent any condensation. Each packet should be used within a week after opening.
