Homemade Honey Vanilla Chamomile Tea – Gluten and Dairy Free

Step by step pictureFresh, flavorful and ten times better than store bought, homemade chamomile tea makes it worth growing chamomile! The honey and vanilla enhance the slightly apple – y subtle chamomile flavor. We grew chamomile in our garden, you can buy seeds here. I let the chamomile sit on a piece of paper for a few days, so it dried out. This might have enhanced the chamomile flavor as I have read, or it might have been a useless step. Anyway, I don’t normally like chamomile tea very much because it is very bitter, but I decided to try homemade and I am glad I did! Enjoy!


Serves: 1 small cup of tea
Prep Time: 10 minutes


¾ cup Boiling water
1/8 cup Fresh chamomile flowers (I let mine dry on a piece of paper for a few days)
½ teaspoon Honey (Adjust to your sweetness preferences)
1/8 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract


Step by step pictureStep 1:    In a mug or cup, stir to combine the water and chamomile.
Step 2:    Let it steep for about five minutes, or until the tea is a rich golden color.
Step 3:    Drape a coffee filter over another mug and pour the tea mixture in.
Step 4:    Let it strain through. Stir in the honey and vanilla. Enjoy!
