Camomile Pyramid Tea Bags offer the same floral flavours associated with this Herbal Tea - but in state-of-the-art Pyramid Tea Bag-form.
First created in 1997, Pyramid Tea Bags allow for up to 50% extra space while the Tea leaves infuse. This ultimately results in a bolder, indeed more flavoursome, beverage, which also comes with Camomile Tea benefits.
What’s more, and perhaps more importantly, we pack almost all of our products, including this one, fresh to order. This is our way of ensuring not only quality but also consistency with every cuppa brewed.

Facts about Tea Bags
- The history of Tea begins some 5,000 years ago - at least. The origins of Tea Bags, specifically, however, only took place in 1908.
- It was a New York-based Tea merchant named Thomas Sullivan who first came up with the idea - reportedly by pure accident.
- The story goes that Mr. Sullivan packed his Tea into small silken bags for convenience. His customers, though, believed it to be part of the product and brewed it up!
- Tea Bags have since taken the world by storm due to their ease in making. Pyramid Tea Bags, in particular, have soared in popularity in recent years.
Camomile Tea Botany and History
Camomile Flowers come from two types of plant: German Camomile (Matricaria recutita) and Roman Camomile (Chamaemelum nobile). Both varieties belong to the Asteraceae (daisy) family.
Its name, meanwhile, derives from the Greek word “Khamaimelon”, which means “earth apple” or “ground apple”. In Ancient Egypt, this herb had a close association with the God Ra.
The famous Roman physician, Pliny the Elder (23CE - 79CE), later thought it could treat headaches while easing liver and kidney inflammation. The Anglo-Saxons recognised Camomile as one of the nine sacred herbs (others included Nettle Leaf Tea, Fennel Tea and Thyme Tea).
Now, we know it best as a delicious, nutritional infusion which makes for an excellent Tea before bed.
