This is a decent chamomile, but I honestly prefer the mellow stale grocery store tea bags to this. I don’t enjoy the fresh and almost fierce flavour of looseleaf chamomile. Still, I really enjoy trying new brands of things and will drink this until its gone.

The good news is that it does not oversteep (it has been sitting in my cup for 2 hours because I forgot about it) and also can be brewed multiple times.

I’m the same way. Bagged chamomile just tastes better to me. I keep hoping to find a loose chamomile I like, but I haven’t yet.

I can send you a sample of this if you want to try it, but I’m not sure it will be any better than the loose ones you tried.

No need to go to the trouble. Just keep me in mind if you do run across a good one.

Egyptian Chamomile is one of the first teas my mother gave me when I was younger. It was a staple in our household, normally reserved for those nights we couldn’t sleep or weren’t feeling good. It is known to be a mild sedative and also for its ability to calm an upset stomach, which is why my mother always pulled it out when we were sick. It is also naturally caffeine free so you’ll commonly see it listed as an ingredient in various herbal and bedtime blends. The flavor is mild and somewhat sweet with a slight taste of apples. You can drink it on its own, blend it with other herbals, or serve it with a large drizzle of honey to ease a sore throat. While I don’t generally purchase chamomile on its own, it is still something great to have on hand. You’ll find it listed as an ingredient in many of the teas in my cupboard.

Chamomile is also soothing topically! We were treating my dog’s paws with chamomile foot soaks to relieve the redness and itching. He had licked them raw because of grass pollen allergies. I was so impressed with how well it worked, I am convinced it must do wonders for our tummies.

I discovered that the infused sachets of Harney & Sons Egyptian Chamomile make excellent eye compresses!
