Chamomile | The Simple Base to Many of Your Favorite Teas

In our conversation about the ingredients present in many of our teas, let's talk about chamomile. When we think of chamomile, words like rest, calm, healing, and a good night's sleep come to mind. These are all positive things! Therefore, let's take a closer look at this herb and see what makes it so popular for both recreational and medicinal purposes over the years.

Chamomile Tea Flavor                       

The delicate chamomile plant bears striking resemblance to a small white daisy, with its soft petals and bright yellow center. When brewed, it releases a gentle fragrance that evokes the warm glow of a summer day, and its pale yellow hue resembles the soft, diffused light of a watercolor painting. The tea's flavor is at first sweet and soothing, with a subtle hint of honey, followed by a pleasant, slightly bitter aftertaste.
Because it is naturally caffeine-free, chamomile tea is an excellent choice at any time of day, and its mild, unobtrusive flavor blends splendidly with other tea varieties. Chamomile tea blends often incorporate natural fruit flavors, such as succulent dried berries or tangy citrus fruits, as well as fragrant herbs like mint, lavender, and lemongrass.

Chamomile Tea Origin 

Chamomile is a fragrant and soothing herb that is commonly used in herbal teas due to its calming properties. The word "Chamomile" is derived from the Greek language, where "Chamai" means "on the ground" and "melon" means "apple", which refers to the pleasant apple-like scent of the herb. There are eleven different species of chamomile, but only two are commonly used in tea blends: Matricaria chamomile (also known as German chamomile) and Chamaemelum nobile (also called Roman chamomile). German chamomile has a more bitter taste, while Roman chamomile is sweeter and milder.

Chamomile has been used since ancient times for its medicinal benefits. In ancient Egypt, it was used to help with colds and fevers. The Romans also valued chamomile for its calming properties and used it in their drinks and as incense. Today, chamomile is still popular for its soothing effects and can be found in various forms such as teas, supplements, and skincare products.

Chamomile Tea Benefits

Chamomile has long been used to aid with anxiety and insomnia, as well as to soothe upset stomachs, relieve nausea, and alleviate heartburn. The flowers of chamomile are the source of its health benefits, which come from several volatile oils including bisabolol oxides, bisabolol, and matricin. The flowers also contain flavonoids, such as apigenin, which has numerous advantages. Chamomile has medicinal properties, including anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-spasmodic, and sedative actions. While chamomile is beneficial in many ways, it is always advisable to consult your doctor regarding any health issues you may be experiencing.
