Chamomile Orange Tea

I love chamomile tea. I usually purchase and enjoy Trader Joe’s Chamomile Tea… but recently I have been getting it in my CSA box. I cute little bouquet that would make an adorable centerpiece decoration! But, I decided to make fresh chamomile tea instead.

Simple: Wash the bouquet. Have a child (good for them-good for you) pick the flowers off of the bouquet and place in a quart Mason jar. Use a potato peeler to peel thin, long strips of organic orange skin- place those in the jar. Fill the jar with boiling water. Let it steep for 10 minutes and drink warm. Or let it steep until whenever you remember it and serve with honey over ice cubes for a lovely iced tea.

We had it at dinner (chamomile = relax = dinnertime = close to bedtime for the kiddos). It was delicious; everyone loved it!

I just planted chamomile seeds in pots on my patio. Decoration. Beverage. I’m excited to see how they grow.

{Note: I followed the same directions and made a VERY SLIGHTLY weaker version using the stems, leaves.}
