Recipe: Fresh Mint Chamomile Tea

22 Apr

We’ve gotten fresh chamomile a couple times in our CSA and it’s such a pleasant herb!  Pretty and makes a lovely tisane.  We got some mint too, so I combined them to make a nice bedtime tea.  Our lemon verbena is coming back to life, so I think I’ll experiment with that too.

Ingredients

  • 1 T chamomile flowers per cup of water (use flowers only, the leaves don’t have much flavor)
  • small handful of mint, bruised
  • freshly boiled filtered water

Pour the hot water over the herbs in your tea pot and let infuse for about 3 minutes.  Strain and enjoy!
