Egyptian Chamomile Tea

Our Egyptian Chamomile Tea is very aromatic with a fruity, floral flavor. There are a lot of Chamomiles on the street, but the supplier we use provides some of best we have steeped.

There are several varieties and countries of origin of Chamomila – sometimes referred to as bachelor buttons because of the shape of the flower heads – but the best quality comes from the Nile Delta region of Egypt. The sandy loam and nutrients from the Nile create perfect growing conditions. Chamomile flowers have a yellow center and white petals – they almost look like a daisy. Essential oils in the flowers produce a soothing pleasant aroma and a fruity character. In some parts of Europe, particularly southern France, chamomile plants have been strewn on floors or pathways to give the area a good scent.

Chamomile can be made into a pleasant aromatic tea which is slightly bitter but with a fruity flavor. It is often sipped for relief of health problems ranging from toothache to nervousness. Chamomile has also been noted as beneficial for soothing headaches and is a natural relaxing herb known to assist the restless and those suffering from insomnia. In many circles Chamomile is called nighty night tea or sleepy tea on account of its natural properties, which promote restfulness and drowsiness. It is also known to assist digestive disorders by settling the stomach and calming the nerves. Chamomile is derived from ancient Greek and translates as “Ground Apple” in reference to the fruity aroma.

Like many teas and herbs chamomile should be consumed without the addition of milk but this does not preclude additives such as honey, lime, lemon, cinnamon etc. One of the fun things to do with a widely used consumer herb like chamomile is to make your own blend. The request for Chamomile teas is so great, we have house-blended several versions which each has become very popular in their own rights.

Try our Egyptian Chamomile Tea we blend with Peppermint.  We call it Chamomile Mint.  Chamomile provides the ‘sleepy’ portion of your blend and the peppermint provides the soothing part (peppermint is known to soothe upset stomachs).

We also have our Berry Magic Tea.  It is exclusively blended for us.  It has a wonderful, Raspberry-Citrusy flavor, with a touch of sweet chamomile peeking through. Like drinking berries with a beautiful ruby red color.

Our Peaceful Sundown is probably our most popular Chamomile blends. The spearmint, rose and lavender provide a wonderful, complex blend of flavors while giving you a relaxing One-Two Punch of Chamomile and Lavender with the Spearmint just for good measure.
