  • 2 cups of water
  • 3 tsp of dried chamomile flowers
  • honey/maple syrup/sugar optional


  • To make chamomile tea,  take two cups of water in a saucepan and heat it. Once it starts to boil, take it off the gas stove and add 3 teaspoons of dried chamomile flowers to it.
  • Keep it covered for a minute or two and allow the dried flowers to steep. Remember that the longer you steep the dried flowers, the stronger the tea will get. 
  • Once done, strain the tea into the cups. You can add a teaspoon of honey or any other sweetener of your liking to enhance the taste of the tea. This step is, however, optional.  Mix the tea well and serve it hot.

  • If you want to get a less fragrant tea or don't want it to be too strong, you can go in for 2 teaspoons of chamomile tea for every cup of hot water. Otherwise, a tablespoon of chamomile tea for every cup of water is ideal.
  • You can also have a cold-brewed version of the same. All you need to do is follow the steps above and put it in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours.
