Chamomile (sometimes spelled camomile) tea is caffeine free so it will definitely not keep you awake at night.
It can also help you if you suffer from a sore stomach or irritable bowel syndrome. Simply let a bag of chamomile tea steep into boiled water and let it brew for 3 to 5 minutes.
Perhaps you have tried chamomile tea in the past from your supermarket are were disappointed by its bland taste?
Well, it was probably because of the mass-produced tea bags that you got. Have you ever tried loose chamomile tea? The herbs have more room to expand and you have large “bits” of herbs instead of the typical left-overs that make it into tea bags. Well worth the additional cents you will spend.
Benefits of Chamomile Tea
Chamomile is one of the oldest garden herbs and was used as a medicinal plant centuries ago and is still used for the same reasons today. The ancient Egyptians considered it a universal remedy and we now use it to battle illness, promote calm and relieve anxiety at bedtime.
As a tisane (herbal tea), it is naturally caffeine-free. The finest varieties of chamomile continue to come from Egypt. I recommend the superior flavor of Adagio’s Egyptian Chamomile tea. It’s what I take whenever I’m stressed and want to unwind before going to bed.
