The word chamomile originated from ancient Greek, and means “apple” and “on the ground.”
With its yellow center and tiny white pedals, visually, the chamomile flower makes one think of a mini daisy, but smells sweeter. Anyone who has enjoyed a cup of properly cultivated and brewed chamomile tea, might understand why ancient Greeks described the chamomile plant as an earth apple.
High quality chamomile tea will deliver a sweet taste, and transport you to lush fields on a warm spring day, as you find yourself slipping into a rejuvenating rest. For those just stepping into the wide world of herbal teas, chamomile is the go-to, usually included on café menus.
