Recipe: Chamomile Green Tea

I’ve been lucky enough to receive a couple harvests of fresh chamomile in my CSA box over the past few months, and I’ve been enjoying adding a little handful of the fragrant flower buds to my daily green tea every morning.  This recipe is truly as simple as that, and it’s the perfect way to add some delightful floral aromas to make a mug of green tea taste like springtime.  If you are a daily green tea drinker like me or are just looking for some fun tea combinations, definitely give this a try!  It’s a really delightful combination that has been sparking joy every morning, like adding a little bit of sunshine to my morning routine.

Recipe down below, along with photos!  This recipe is enough to make one mug of chamomile green tea, but feel free to scale up for a full pot or even larger for a pitcher of iced chamomile green tea.  I always drink this warm, but I think it would be a great iced tea option! 

Feel free to add any additional sweeteners of choice, although I would try this without any extra sweeteners first.  The chamomile adds a floral, natural sweetness which I find very pleasant, and I prefer this tea to be completely unsweetened.  That being said, feel free to dress this up and make it to your liking!
