What is chamomile tea?
Chamomile tea originated in Europe and western Asia, drunk for thousands of years as a medicinal herbal beverage in many parts of the world. It’s a herbal infusion made from dried flowers of the chamomile plant — a member of the daisy family.
The dried flowers are often blended with other herbs to create deliciously smooth and subtle aromatic flavours. Renowned for its soothing and relaxing properties, it’s been used for centuries as a natural remedy for various ailments. And since it’s caffeine-free, it makes a great alternative to other caffeinated beverages, so you can drink this tea at any time without the stress of being kept up at night. Its mild, sweet and floral flavour can be enjoyed hot or cold. Chamomile tea is widely available in tea bags or loose-leaf tea, depending on your preference.
No caffeine, no worries!
Since chamomile tea has zero caffeine, it makes for the perfect bedtime beverage. Caffeine-free chamomile tea is often people’s go-to nighty-night sleep-tight brew because it has natural soothing and settling properties.
