Citrus Chamomile Tea
There’s a bit of a caveat to this chamomile... it’s too flavorful. Seriously. Chamomile is supposed to be all calm and relaxation and spa day treatments. It’s supposed to ease you to bed and wrap you in a knit blanket. Not perk your senses with citrus and tickle the imagination with fruit.
We have failed. Our deepest apologies.
This bombastically aromatic tisane’s perfume is reminiscent of summer afternoons spent canning marmalades, jams, and jellies. The taste is floral with a bitter Seville orange flavor in the back with notes at the front of Meyer lemon and Nagami kumquat.
This tisane pours honey-colored and pairs delightfully with jams and cakes. Of course, you can always cook with a bit of chamomile. Grind it up with white sugar and add it to angel food cake. Or, perhaps, when making a citrus marmalade brew the water with this delightful herbal blend for three minutes. Afterward, make the recipe as usual. The marmalade will take on the sooth sensation of chamomile.
