EGYPTIAN CAMOMILE HERBAL TEA 2oz
The Egyptian Camomile Caffeine Free Herbal Tea blend from English Tea Store comes from the Nile Delta in Egypt where the best quality camomile comes from. Camomile makes a pleasant aromatic tea with a fruity flavor, enhanced by sugar or honey. It is often sipped for relief of health problems ranging from toothache to nervousness. Camomile has also been noted as beneficial for soothing headaches and is a natural relaxing herb known to assist the restless and those suffering from insomnia. In many circles, Camomile is called a nighty night tea or sleepy tea on account of its natural properties which promote restfulness and drowsiness. It is also known to assist digestive disorders by settling the stomach and calming the nerves.
The plant's botanical name, Matricaria, is derived from the Latin term for womb because it was once used as an herb to treat female troubles. Camomile is derived from ancient Greek and translates as "Ground Apple" in reference to the fruity aroma. Like many teas and herbs, camomile should be consumed without the addition of milk but this does not preclude additives such as honey, lime, lemon, cinnamon etc.
One of the fun things to do with a widely used consumer herb like camomile is to make your own blend. Try camomile with peppermint and call it Camomint Soothing Sleeper. Camomile provides the "sleepy" portion of your blend and the peppermint provides the soothing part (peppermint is known to soothe upset stomachs).
This herb is sold in 2 ounces packages, which are the same size as the 4 ounces of our regular tea, as this product is very light.
