Chamomile is an herbal tisane that was used thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt for its curative properties. Upon infusion, the whole flower buds give off a strong floral fragrance and a deep yellow color. This soothing tea is widely known for its calming and relaxing properties, making it a perfect tea to drink before bedtime. It also helps greatly with digestion and to calm an upset stomach. Caution should be used for those allergic to ragweed.

Story, Folklore, History...
The name Chamomile comes from the Greek word meaning "ground apple." Its history dates back at least to ancient Egypt, where Chamomile tea was prescribed as a cold remedy. The Romans enjoyed it as a beverage, as well as an incense. The Plant's Physician: Not only does Chamomile have amazing healing properties for hundreds of human ailments, but it is also known as the plant’s physician. Plants that are around chamomile mysteriously benefit from its curative properties. It has a remarkable ability to keep plants healthy if planted near it, and even revive sick plants. "Nothing will keep a garden so healthy, as plenty of chamomile".

A household favourite in my family =) My young children love chamomile tea and drink it out of espresso cups (small size is perfect for their little hands). A great tea to have at bed time.  After brewing this tea, we put the leftover chamomile flowers in our garden in the summer- nothing goes to waste.

The absolute best chamomile I have tasted and I have tried many. It is fragrant, smooth and sweet and, for the first time with any chamomile tea, I’ve actually felt the immediate effects of deep relaxation. Very soothing and settling to the stomach as well.

Wow this tea is great. As with all other teas I bought at Shanti this tea is way more flavourfull and scentfull than any other tea you buy at the groceries.  I concocted my own little recipe with other teas, all from Shanti, to make myself a sleeping aid tea. It is awsome!

This is the best chamomile I’ve ever tasted. Sweet, smooth and tasting of apples, no bitterness at all like some chamomile can have.

That rating above is an accident, it was meant to be 5 stars!

Before hitting the sack, I always have this tea and my night is not complete without it. So calming and I love the scent. I love the mild taste, just don’t steep it too long.

I open the bag and inhaled the sweet, floral fragrance of this amazing tea.  My ritual is Chamomile tea (add other teas for variety) every evening to aid in my sleeping…and it works!

This is the best chamomile I’ve ever had. In case anyone is confused, this is the German chamomile, the most common. It smells strongly of apples, a very distinctive sweet, earthy, apple scent that’s unbelievable comforting. The taste is the best I’ve experienced, will definitely buy again.
