More soothing than a long soak in a hot bath, a cup of chamomile tea is beyond relaxing, perfect for when you feel anxiety creeping in during the work day. These days, chamomile pops up in everything from cosmetics and aromatherapy, to beverages and baked goods, but its perceived calming properties have been popular for hundreds of years! 

Well, we say ‘tea’… technically this daisy-like flower isn’t a tea at all — it’s a naturally-caffeine-free herb that boasts a sweetly floral flavour and comes from the same family of plants as sunflowers, echinacea and marigolds. No wonder Lipton features chamomile as a protagonist in many of our infusions! So sit down, switch off and sip to unwind after a long and stressful day.

TEA TIME

Due to being naturally caffeine free and packed full of sweetly-calming flavours, Chamomile is just about the perfect addition to the night-time ‘winding-down’ routine. Smartphone off, PJs on, cup of chamomile in hand and daisy-scented dreams of sunshine incoming. Gosh, we’re getting sleepy already…

That being said, we don’t think you should just relegate this delicious herbal infusion to the latter half of the day to help you switch off. Its slightly sweet floral flavour with light earthy undertones, pair terrifically well with savoury dishes that contain a hint of sweetness. Think a salmon fillet baked in a honey dressing, or a fresh crunchy salad speckled with raisins. 

GETTING THE BEST FROM YOUR BREW

Chamomile benefits from a good long soak in some freshly-boiled water to really get its lovely relaxing flavours to unfold. The best herbal teas like an infusion time of around 4 to 5 minutes, that’ll allow the water turn a bright golden colour with good clarity. Try this cup-of-calm hot or iced!
