Easy, Fresh Chamomile Tea

I was thrilled this week to be able to gather my first chamomile blooms from my mini herb garden.   They are such pretty, sunny blooms and smelled heavenly!  I brewed myself a cup of this tea about an hour before I went to bed and enjoyed some nice, deep sleep.

There are a lot of different flower to water ratios but, here is what I did to make my tea:

*2-3 tsp fresh chamomile flowers
*1 cup water
*honey as desired

Place chamomile flowers in a tea pot or glass jar.  Heat your water and just as it starts to boil, remove from heat and pour over your chamomile flowers.  Allow to sit, covered, for 15-30 minutes.  If desired, add honey, sip 45 minutes to 1 hour before bedtime.
