Today I'm going to show you how I make my cup of chamomile tea.  Chamomile is a wonderful herb that is calming and an anti-inflammatory.  My little man even loves his chamomile tea with raw honey. 

Whenever I think of chamomile I think of Peter Rabbit... "One tablespoonful to be taken at bed time."

Here's what I use to make it:

1 tablespoon of dried chamomile
8 oz of just boiled water
Tea press

These pictures show me making two cups of tea... First put your water to boil while you are preparing your tea press.  Put your measured amount of chamomile into your tea press.
Then pour your just boiled water over the herbs and cover with the lid.
Set your timer for 20 minutes while your herbs steep and while you set up your nice quiet corner to enjoy your tea.  When the timer goes off push down on the tea press to capture the herbs on the bottom.  Look at the beautiful color it turned.
Now pour your beautiful aromatic tea into a cute mug and add some delicious organic raw local wildflower honey!
Now curl up and enjoy your chamomile tea while reading a book, perusing the internet, or crocheting like me!  And yes of course we can't forget... I always find my welcoming cup of tea sitting and waiting for me after I've chased the little one around the house for a bit.  He in fact just woke up from his nap and is stealing sips for himself ;)

Why didn't I ever think about using my coffee press for tea? So easy. Boy Deere likes tea also.
