Step-by-Step Guide: Making Chamomile Tea (One Cup Serving)


- 1 chamomile tea bag or 1 tablespoon of dried chamomile flowers
- 1 cup of water
- Optional: honey or lemon for flavor




1. **Boil Water:**
   Start by boiling a cup of water. You can use a kettle or a saucepan on the stovetop.

2. **Prepare Chamomile:**
   If using a chamomile tea bag, place it in your cup. If using dried chamomile flowers, place them in a tea infuser or directly into the cup.

3. **Pour Hot Water:**
   Once the water has boiled, carefully pour it over the chamomile tea bag or flowers in the cup.

4. **Steep the Tea:**
   Cover the cup with a saucer or a small plate to trap the steam and preserve the aromatic compounds. Allow the chamomile to steep for about 5-10 minutes. This steeping time can be adjusted to your preference for a stronger or milder flavor.

5. **Remove the Tea Bag or Strain:**
   If you used a tea bag, carefully remove it from the cup once the steeping time is up. If you used chamomile flowers, you can remove the infuser or strain the tea while pouring it into another cup.

6. **Optional Additions:**
   If desired, add a teaspoon of honey or a squeeze of lemon to enhance the flavor of your chamomile tea.

7. **Enjoy Your Tea:**
   Your chamomile tea is ready to be enjoyed! Find a cozy spot, take a moment to savor the soothing aroma, and savor the calming taste of the tea.
