I have tried various commercial varieties of camomile tea over the years but they leave me with a nasty stinging sort of sensation at the back of my throat. Today I picked some fresh flowers, dropped them into boiling water, let it steep for a few minutes, strained it, added a little honey and it tasted wonderful.
I think I will have a go at drying some too.

Camomile tea is relaxing, aids digestion and relaxes muscles, eases muscle cramps, premenstrual tension, and can help when you have a head ache. It is also said to boost the immune system. Research carried out by British scientists may give a clue to how it works.
Perfect at night after a big day in the garden.
