Our Chamomile tea is made of the finest chamomile flowers from the Nile River Valley in Egypt. Considered a remedy for all ills by the ancient Egyptians, this golden herb remains a modern favorite to promote calm and relieve anxiety. When steeped, these fragrant chamomile blossoms smell of freshly cut apples and produce a rich, golden cup with calming flavor and sweet, floral finish. Our Chamomile tea is made with whole flower pieces and produces a delicious, caffeine-free infusion. It may also be served with a dash of honey.
This tea contains no caffeine | Steep at 212° for 5-10 minutes.
Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Fresh From Origin
The name Chamomile comes from the Greek word meaning 'ground apple.' Its history dates back at least to ancient Egypt, where Chamomile tea was prescribed as a cold remedy. The Romans enjoyed it as a beverage, as well as an incense. Ironically, the name 'Roman Chamomile' by which it is sometimes known, does not stem from this time. It rather comes from an arbitrary naming of the herb in the 19th Century by a botanist who happened to find some growing in the Roman Coliseum.

How long have you been growing tea?
What got you started in the Tea industry?
“My parents own a small piece land and all the village is professional in growing Chamomile. It is part of our life in winter.”
Can you describe a typical day out in the field. How many hours would that be?
“During the Chamomile harvest season, I go pick flowers either before school or after school hours; sometimes I do both before and after. As you know, EL SHEIH (a local word for Chamomile in Arabic) can only be collected in the early hours of the day or late in the afternoon (after Asr prayer); otherwise, it breaks and, as my father always say, we loose the good looks of the intact whole flower. It takes me 2 hours in the morning or 3 hours in the afternoon to collect a plot this size (about 1/20 an acre) and I would collect about 20kilos.”
