When you can look into the tea bag and actually see something that doesn’t look like stuffing from a cat’s toy…. you know you’re about to enjoy some serious tea goodness.
Mighty Leaf teas are exquisite and just one glance at the tea bag shows why. The tea shown above is Chamomile Citrus Gift Tin and it comes in a reusable stylish tin. I save my tins and use them to store other tea bags that aren’t lucky enough to come with their own. It seems to keep the tea bags fresher and I know it preserves the tea’s flavor.
Tea, deservedly, gets a lot of recognition for its health benefits. With antioxidants to spare, it really doesn’t make much sense to drink anything but tea. Even if it weren’t delicious, tea’s health benefits warrant our attention.
When it comes to Chamomile Tea, there’s an additional health benefit many don’t even think of: Beautiful, peaceful, much-needed relaxation. With the fast-paced world we live in, our days can seem very chaotic. When nighttime rolls around, sometimes it’s difficult to unwind and “switch off” all of the energy the day has generated.
That’s where Chamomile tea comes riding in like a knight on a white tea cup.
Egyptians revered Chamomile for its calming effects and its been grown and enjoyed for centuries by tea lovers around the world who appreciate its mild, wonderful flavor in addition to its relaxing effects. It’s no secret that stress and anxiety wield many ill-effects on the body and mind. Chamomile tea brings about a feeling of relaxation and contentment. In fact, just the aroma, alone, initiates the “unwind.”
I prefer to drink Chamomile tea in the evening, but it’s delicious and enjoyable any time of the day. I’ve heard of people who wouldn’t think of having a lunch break without it. They swear that it’s the one thing that allows them to get through the day.
The fresh plant is strongly and agreeably aromatic, with a distinct scent of apples – a characteristic noted by the Greeks, on account of which they named it ‘ground-apple’ – kamai (on the ground) and melon (an apple) – the origin of the name Chamomile. The Spaniards call it ‘Manzanilla,’ which signifies ‘a little apple,’ and give the same name to one of their lightest sherries, flavoured with this plant.
When walked on, its strong, fragrant scent will often reveal its presence before it is seen. For this reason it was employed as one of the aromatic strewing herbs in the Middle Ages, and used often to be purposely planted in green walks in gardens. Indeed walking over the plant seems specially beneficial to it.
‘Like a camomile bed –
The more it is trodden
The more it will spread,’
The aromatic fragrance gives no hint of its bitterness of taste.
The Chamomile used in olden days to be looked upon as the ‘Plant’s Physician,’ and it has been stated that nothing contributes so much to the health of a garden as a number of Chamomile herbs dispersed about it, and that if another plant is drooping and sickly, in nine cases out of ten, it will recover if you place a herb of Chamomile near it.
If we were to think of our days in terms of punctuation – they almost always qualify as exclamation marks, with some days ranking !!!! (we’ve all had those days). Chamomile tea, in punctuation terms, would therefore be the “trailing off” series of periods ……. Drinking Chamomile tea allows you to leave the exclamation marks behind and just trail off to restful and healthy sleep…..
