How to make chamomile iced tea - Soothing & refreshing
Normally thought of as a warm tea, but chamomile iced tea is surprisingly delicious.
Chamomile tea has long been valued for its soothing, relaxing, and reviving character.
A daisylike flower, chamomile is used to make a herbal tea rather than a true tea. (As we know, herbal teas are not real tea.)
In addition to being delicious, the fresh lemon adds a boost of vitamin C which is handy if you’ve got a cold or are feeling under the weather.
In this iced recipe you can use honey or sugar as sweetener, but it is not necessary as chamomile tea has a slightly sweet taste on it’s own.
The trick is to make it strong enough, and this recipe does.
