A very soothing and relaxing tea.


To harvest the chamomile flowers, it's ideal to use them the same day they are harvested, as the delicate petals have a short shelf life. Otherwise, they can last a couple of days in the refrigerator, in a plastic bag with a lightly dampened paper towel. To prepare the chamomile for use, pop the head of the flower off the stem. They can even be harvested this way, so that they are immediately ready for use. Alternatively, the Chamomile leaves can be used for tea, but use only healthy looking bright green leaves.  For the mint, select a small sprig about 2 inches long (for stronger mint flavor, use more); use only healthy looking leaves, and wash using cold water before making tea.
