There’s nothing quite like a hot drink at the end of the day. At Spirit & Destiny, we feel connected to the practice and ritualistic nature of making a cup of tea. Making a piping hot brew in the morning can help us prepare for the day ahead. Whereas, in the evening, tea can unwind and de-stress. One of our favourite teas is chamomile. So, we’ve put together the best chamomile tea – just for you.

What is chamomile?

So, for those of you wondering what chamomile is, this popular tea blend is a flower. You could hold a chamomile flower side-by-side with a daisy and have trouble finding differences. Chamomile tea is a herbal infusion made from dried chamomile flowers and hot water.

FAQs

Can I brew chamomile tea myself?

Luckily, dried chamomile flowers are very accessible for us in the UK – so, you can brew this delicious drink at home. We’ve picked this bag of flowers from TeaPigs – which is a trusted brand.

The method from TeaPigs:

1 Add two teaspoons (per person) of the dried chamomile flowers to a teapot.

2 Add 200-300ml of boiling water to the teapot.

3 Leave to brew for three to five minutes.

4 Pour and enjoy!

If you’re interested in growing the flowers yourself, the Royal Horticultural Society has a great resource on this. If you’re keen, we’ve popped in a starter pack here for you.

A quick note from Spirit & Destiny: pregnant people should avoid the variation “Roman chamomile” because it has been known to invoke miscarriage.

So, if you’re interested in trying chamomile tea to supplement – and not to replace usual medication - you should give it a try. Spirit & Destiny recommends one to two cups a day. Then, perhaps, you may see some improvements. We hope so.
