Clean and subtle, these flowers are also wonderfully calming and, of course, caffeine free.
The general rule of thumb is that all herbs should be infused at 100C, to dissolve the essential oils. When making tea at Rare Tea HQ, we love to experiment, searching for the best possible flavours. We found that chamomile is quite like tea and has bitter compounds, so actually works better at a lower temperature – treat it like a green tea, 70C. The exception to the herbal rule.
Matricaria recutita or German chamomile is a beautiful flower and makes a delicious herbal infusion. Our famous, celebrated and beloved whole chamomile flowers are sourced from a small Croatian farm.
We source the very best flowers that a carefully hand processed. Without the hurly-burly of industrial machines the delicate flowers are kept whole.
