Organic Chamomile

compostable-tea-packaging-1.jpg

There are several varieties and countries of origin of Chamomile, but the best quality comes from Egypt. The sandy loam and nutrients from the Nile create perfect growing conditions for this organic herbal tea. Chamomile flowers are daisy-like in appearance with a yellow center and white petal. Our chamomile is meticulously harvested and hand packed to retain as many whole flowers as possible. The golden yellow infusion of this caffeine free organic loose leaf herbal tea is (not surprisingly) floral, almost buttery, with the tiniest bit of tartness in the finish; it is truly a gem of organic herbal tea from Africa.

In some parts of Europe, particularly southern France, chamomile plants have been strewn on floors and pathways to give the area a good scent. Many feel that Chamomile is a naturally soothing and relaxing herb, promoting restfulness and drowsiness. Chamomile tastes great with such condiments as honey, lime, lemon and cinnamon!

Ingredients: organic Egyptian chamomile

Origin: Egypt

chamomile-in-bloom-2.jpg

Positioned on the crossroads of the ancient spice road, Egypt has a long history in growing, processing, and preparing herbs. Not only does the fertile land of the Nile delta provide ideal growing conditions, but thousands of years of knowledge have created highly skilled farmers. The earliest written records of herbal practices in Egypt are found in the Ebers Papyrus dating from about 1500 BCE, which contains over 700 references to herbal remedies. In much of Egypt, growing and processing herbs is still done in the traditional way -- planting, harvesting and processing by hand. For some herbs like chamomile, this manual process is still required to keep the flowers as intact as possible.

Steeping Instructions

chamomile-tea-steeping-instructions.jpg

At Arbor Teas, we believe tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. We’re happy to make recommendations to get you started, but don’t hesitate to experiment! When brewing your tea, your main considerations are tea quantity, water temperature, and steeping time. We recommend herbal and rooibos teas to be steeped for 5 to 7 minutes in water heated to a full rolling boil. For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible, and avoid overboiling. If you want a stronger brew, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!

    "I’m not just saying this, but this is one of the best Chamomile teas out there! My mom was very into natural remedies, so I have had a lot of Chamomile tea in my 29 (Ha!) years. This one makes the entire family happy! My daughter loves to drink this herbal tea on winter nights."

    "Personally, I don't prefer Chamomile on its own, but I love it in combination with peppermint in our Chamomile Mint blend."

    "The appearance of the dried blossoms is so beautiful!"

Health Benefits

tea-health-3.jpg

Chamomile may be best known for its relaxing qualities, a calming herb that many drink before bed. It’s also loved for its ability to calm the stomach, particularly because chamomile oil contains anodyne compounds, which are antispasmodic and help reduce constipation, cramping and other stomach pains. Applied topically, chamomile can have an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. Studies have also linked it with anticancer properties, specifically tested on the skin, prostate, breast and ovarian cancer types. In addition, it may be beneficial as a sleep aid, and is helpful with hemorrhoids, gastrointestinal distress, and colic conditions according to a study done at the Department of Urology and Nutrition in Cleveland, Ohio.

    Wonderful flavor and scent!

    Posted by Edi Seals on 17th Aug 2019

    I equally enjoy the delicious flavor of this chamomile (the best of any company's that I have tried) as well as the lovely scent. Sometimes I take a minute to just breathe in and savor the scent of the tea while waiting for the water to boil!

    The Best Chamomile Ever!

    Posted by Katherine Fong on 30th Jan 2019

    I am a religious chamomile tea drinker, I drink it almost every night, and often during the day. I have a condition in which too much caffeine causes negative side effects, so I often turn to herbal and decaf teas. I love tea, and I've tried many chamomile teas, and this is my absolute favorite out of all of the ones that I have tried. The flavors are much stronger than any other chamomile. I can get multiple uses out of a single tea strainer, which I absolutely love! I originally got a sample size and then I loved it so much that I bought the biggest size! This is a great value and incredibly high quality.

    Arbors chamomile is probably the best I’ve had yet. Very full creamy almost, with extensive amounts of flavor.

    Great tea, the flavor is awesome compared to other generic chamomile teas and it is perfect to just sip and relax. The Wholesale size was decievingly stuffed with the fluffy tea herbs and filled up more jars than I had expected for an affordable price, give it a try!

    Relaxing

    Posted by Yen Wen C. on 18th Jun 2014

    This is a good night time before bed tea! It's simple and rich flowery taste. It's good by itself or blending with a little juice to sweeten it up. Love it no matter it's hot or cold! P.S. It's good to have it in tea bags when brewing, otherwise it's a bit hard to clean the mesh strainer sometimes.

    Night Time Tea

    Posted by Christina K on 19th Feb 2014

    I got the sample size of this tea just to make sure that I would like it. Well I love it, it has a soothing and calming complexity about it. I like to have it at night time, it helps me relax before going to bed. I going to be buying this tea for my step-mom's birthday who loves chamomile tea too!

    Relaxing Chamomile Tea

    Posted by Aylin Celtik on 5th Feb 2014

    Chamomile tea helps me relax and unwind at the end of a long, stressful day. I occasionally drink it right before bedtime to help me fall asleep. The chamomile flowers taste like aromatic golden deliciousness and you can taste the sweetness of the chamomile flower in every cup especially in winter. Arbor Teas is the best. Their processing time is very fast. They shipped my herbal teas in the same day after I put my order. Thanks.

    The Best I Have Ever Had...

    Posted by Jason Sheets on 13th Dec 2013

    The first time I ordered this Chamomile I had a slight issue with my order. It was taken care of in the most simplistic way by the great customer service here at Arbor Teas. They truly do go above and beyond to make you happy. I have had Chamomile tea many times and I honestly can say that this is the best Chamomile I have ever had!! I'm a Beekeeper so I add a little of my honey to the mix and "Boom Goes the Dynamite!" This is Awesome!!!~~~

    a great cold care tea for children and adults

    Posted by dimitra on 17th Feb 2013

    This chamomile tea is a staple in our house, especially in the winter time. It is wonderful served alone or with lemon, honey, and even a splash of whiskey or combined with some steeped ginger. I dilute the tea for my kids (2 and 5 years old) with some water, and they love it. My daughter thinks it has a cherry flavor. By far, the best chamomile I have had. I find that steeping for 5 minutes yields a nice cup, steeping too long makes it taste bitter.

    Very soothing and complex flavors...

    Posted by Lukasz on 6th Dec 2011

    I purposely waited 9+ months to review this tea in order to provide a true assessment of it. I ordered this tea in bulk and stored it inside the large air tight metal containers sold here. When fresh, this is a great chamomile “tea.” A lot of complexity and soothing qualities come across immediately. The flavor is certainly more intense than the generic individual tea bags most people are used to. My only issue is that the chamomile becomes stale and loses flavor after extended storage. My 9+ month old batch stored in the air tight metal container is at the end of its life and I will have to toss it soon unfortunately.
