Chamomile Tea

Yet more photos... here's some chamomile for a nice relaxing cup of tea to unwind with after a long week! Well, I was thinking somewhere along the lines of a nice scotch, but this is healthier :)

This is just your basic run-of-the-mill German Chamomile, purchased from the local grocer's bulk organic department. Simply toss a tablespoon or two into a cheesecloth or cotton pouch with boiling water & sweeten with sugar or honey. Smells great, even if you aren't a tea drinker!

I'm going to scatter a bunch of chamomile seeds in the sunny spot near the edge of our yard...if it works out, I will have tea, if not, maybe a few flowers would be nice.
Have a lovely weekend!


  1. I am so addicted to that stuff!!!!! LOVE it. I have lavender in mine ... knocks ya right out ... LOL!

  2. What a great idea for a blog! I love your pictures--they're making me want a cup of tea and a scone. While I don't have any scones at the moment, I do believe I hear the tea kettle calling...

  3. This is actually my favorite herb tea you should try making a big batch and ice it.I promise you wont be dissapointed.
