Description

Camomile Tea is, perhaps, the most famous type of Herbal Tea. Made from the flowers of the Chamaemelum nobile plant, our very own Camomile Tea Bags offer you the chance to enjoy a cup of this delightfully refreshing beverage while in a hurry.

We all have hectic schedules these days - places to be, things to do - but with our Camomile Tea Bags, one can buy themselves just a few extra minutes relaxing instead of burdening oneself with brewing Loose Leaf Tea.

This infusion boasts distinct floral flavours and surprisingly defined fruity notes. In fact, the name “Chamomile” derives from the Greek word “Khamaimelon”, meaning “earth apple”, which refers to the unique taste of this remarkable brew.

History of Camomile Tea

This flower has a close association with an ancient Egyptian God called Ra. The people during this time also used Camomile in cosmetics and hair products, as well as in ceremonies and rituals. Dioscorides (c. 40CE - c. 90CE), the Greek physician and botanist, later believed that Camomile could heal intestinal, liver and nervous system disorders.

Another famous physician, Pliny the Elder (23CE - 79CE), thought it could treat headaches while easing liver and kidney inflammation. The Anglo-Saxons, meanwhile, recognised Camomile as one of the nine sacred herbs (others included Nettle Leaf Tea, Fennel Tea and Thyme Tea). Nowadays, many choose this Tea for its ability to improve sleeping patterns. It also, of course, tastes great!

Benefits of Camomile Tea Bags

Did you know Camomile Tea can help you sleep. The facts come from a 2011 study published in European Neuropsychopharmacology.

First off, the research found that it contains phytochemicals capable of influencing the neurotransmitters in the brain. It has a positive impact on serotonin and dopamine, in particular, which in turn improves sleep and enhances mood.

Furthermore, Camomile Tea Bags work with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors in the central nervous system, which then promotes a state of calmness.

It also, third and finally, boosts melatonin, a neurohormone that regulates the wake-sleep cycle in the body. This is why so many people choose Camomile as a Tea before bed.
