Since the Ancient Egyptians, chamomile has been part of our diets and medicines. For hundreds of years we have used it for everything from aiding sleep to improving skin conditions. It is also naturally caffeine free, making it the go-to infusion when you want a cup of tea in the evenings.
However, while its benefits are well-known, we like to focus on its unique flavour and aroma. AVANTCHA’s Organic Chamomile Blossoms are sourced in Egypt, where they are slowly dried to maintain the purest aroma and flavour. The word ‘chamomile’ comes from the Greek ‘chamos’ and ‘milos’, literally translating as ‘ground apple’. The sweet, fruity flavour of chamomile makes it exceptionally versatile.
These little blooms of sunshine are the perfect addition to all kinds of drinks.
As the summer sets in we wanted to share one of our favourite iced tea recipes. You will find that the fresh basil and sweet strawberry perfectly compliment the earthy aroma of chamomile.
Make a big jug of this as you won’t want to stop after your first glass.
