How To Brew Egyptian Chamomile
Use 1 heaping teaspoon per 6 oz. water. Heat water to a full boil. Steep for 5 minutes or more.
We recommend using a teapot, tea infuser, or tea filter. These brewing methods give the tea leaves enough room to expand as the tea steeps, resulting in a richer, more flavorful cup. Egyptian Chamomile won’t become bitter when steeped for a longer period of time. Chamomile also makes a great base for tea cocktails!

More About Egyptian Chamomile
Chamomile has been used as a folk remedy and soothing herbal infusion for hundreds of years. Ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians all revered chamomile for its medicinal properties, and today chamomile is still used around the world for its soothing, nourishing effects. The English word “chamomile” is derived from the Greek word khamaimēlon, meaning “earth apple,” which refers to chamomile’s characteristic apple-like sweetness.
Today, chamomile used for tea is often grown in Egypt. Egyptian chamomile is of extremely high quality, and is notable for its natural sweetness. While commercial chamomile found in teabags or sachets is often made of broken dust and fannings leftover from the largest flower heads, high-quality chamomile is distinguished by its large, fragrant flower heads and exceptional flavor.
Our Egyptian Chamomile is composed of large, fragrant flowerheads of the highest quality. This makes for an exceptionally flavorful tea with a notable natural sweetness. While Egyptian Chamomile is delicious on its own, it’s also great with a spoonful of honey for an extra sweet, soothing treat.
