Fresh, 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!
