Chamomile tea is made from dried flowers from the aromatic chamomile plant (Matricaria recutita), which has its roots in the lush landscapes of central and southern Europe. This beloved herbal tea is valued not only for its gentle, floral taste, but also for its ability to evoke a sense of calm and well-being, making it more than just a simple beverage.

Through the extraction of the essence from chamomile flowers, which are harvested across Southern and Southeastern Europe, chamomile tea has gained global popularity. Its wide-ranging appeal encompasses the lush European landscapes, the vast plains of North America, and the idyllic coastlines of Australia.

In many cultures, chamomile tea is considered to be a natural remedy for various ailments. Its calming effect is especially appreciated for promoting good sleep. In some traditions, chamomile tea is included in evening routines as a way to signal the body that it’s time to relax and prepare for sleep. In other contexts, it is served as a gesture of hospitality, welcome or comfort to guests and family members.

Chamomile tea is also appreciated for its mild, slightly sweet taste, which makes it a popular drink among people of all ages. Whether as part of an evening routine or for pleasure, chamomile tea plays an important role in tea-drinking cultures all over the world.

How to brew a nice cup of chamomile tea

Brewing a wonderful cup of chamomile tea doesn’t have to be a laborious process. At Perchs, we guide you through tea brewing step by step so you can enjoy this soothing drink to the fullest. Follow our simple guide to achieve the perfect cup:

  1. Start with fresh, cold filtered water to ensure the purest taste.
  2. Heat the water to the boiling point. This step is essential to activate the essential oils of chamomile flowers and bring out the full flavor.
  3. Pour over the dried chamomile flowers with the boiling water. Feel free to use a tea strainer or a teapot designed for loose tea, to make the process easier.
  4. Let the tea steep for 5-8 minutes, depending on your preference. Longer steeping time results in a more intense tea.
  5. Strain the chamomile flowers so that your tea is clear and without any remnants of the flowers.
  6. Add a spoonful of honey for a sweeter taste if desired. Honey perfectly compliments the natural flavor of the chamomile flower and adds a mild sweetness.

How long should chamomile tea pull?

Ideally, chamomile tea should steep for 5-8 minutes. This brewing time ensures that the essential oils and flavorful nuances of the chamomile flowers are effectively extracted, resulting in a tea that is both flavorful and soothing.

You can let your chamomile tea steep longer if you want a slightly stronger tea, but be aware that too long a steeping time can make the tea overwhelming and bitter. When chamomile tea drags on for too long, the fine, soft notes of chamomile begin to be overshadowed by a more dominant bitterness, which may be less appealing to some. It is therefore important to find the right balance that suits your personal taste preferences.

Finally, it is worth mentioning that the quality of the chamomile flowers you use plays a big role in the final taste experience. High-quality dried chamomile flowers will naturally give a more aromatic and flavorful tea compared to lower quality products.

So for the best tea experience, we recommend that you choose your chamomile tea wisely and use chamomile tea with whole dried chamomile flowers.

How should chamomile tea be stored?

To ensure that your chamomile tea retains its unique freshness and delicate aromatic properties, proper storage is essential. At Perchs, we recommend that you store your chamomile tea in an airtight container, ideally found on our range of tea cans, placed in a cool and dark place. This will protect the tea from the harmful effects of moisture, light and air, which can degrade the quality and significantly reduce the tea’s lifespan.

It is also important to keep chamomile tea separate from foods or spices with strong scents, as the chamomile flowers are porous and can absorb these scents, which can alter the tea’s distinctive flavor.

By following these simple storage tips, you can ensure that each cup of chamomile tea you brew stays true to its original flavour profile and aroma.
