The Business of Blends
One area we have been diving into more at The Tea Table is the craft of blends. While we have always offered our own flavored blends, in the last couple years we have ventured further into unflavored ones.
Egyptian Chamomile Tea
There are several varieties and countries of origin of chamomile - sometimes referred to as "bachelor buttons" because of the shape of the flower heads - but the best quality comes from the Nile River delta in Egypt. The sandy loam and nutrients from the Nile create perfect growing conditions. Chamomile flowers have a yellow center and white petals - they almost look like a daisy. The essential oils in the flowers produce a pleasant soothing aroma and a fruity character. The word "chamomile" derives from ancient Greek and translates as "ground apple" in reference to the fruity aroma.
Use a heaping teaspoon per cup and steep in freshly boiled water for 5-10 minutes.

Excellent tea, light and fruity. Difficult to dislike, so if you are unsure you should just try some.
