Chamomile brewing

Postby Tsukiko » Feb 14th, '08, 07:08

Until recently, I haven't been interested in chamomile tea. All the store-bought brands that I'd had in the past were below par so I was a bit turned off the herb for a while. I discovered Adagio's loose-leaf chamomile last month and the smell and taste are impeccable.

How much chamomile should be used in brewing 8 oz of tea to get the full benefit and flavor of the herb?

Normally 1-1.5 tsp for 6 oz so I'd say 1.5 tsp or a little more for a stronger brew for 8 oz. Experiment a little bit and see what tastes best to you.

Maybe around 2 tsp+

Good chamomile is tasty, isn't it?

I'd say start with 2tsp, but play around with it until you find what tastes best to you.
