Lavender and Chamomile Tea with Eastern Shore Honey

Jump to Recipe

This Lavender Chamomile Tea is sure to quench your thirst.

All of us always seem a little too stressed. Lavender Chamomile Tea is naturally caffeine-free and a great way to wind down from a busy day. Together, lavender and chamomile are gentle yet powerful and have been used for thousands of years. This tea helps reduce stress by settling your nervous system and calming your digestive system. Lavender promotes relaxation and chamomile eases tension and supports digestion. Steeped in flavor, this recipe is not too sweet and not too bitter.

A little bit on the history of iced tea: the commercialization of iced tea was born out of necessity. At the 1904 World’s Fair, the temperatures were insanely hot and people weren’t interested in their normally preferred hot drinks, and that is when iced tea first became popular.

We like to use our Blueberry Honey for this recipe and finishing the iced tea with fresh lemon, lime or orange juice. Using the berries as a garnish gives a little surprise to the end of your drink-we like to drop a few blueberries on top of the ice. If you aren’t a fan of iced tea (or if it’s cold outside), you can definitely brew this tea hot!

Adapting our Lavender Chamomile Tea

You know, a recipe is not truly perfect until you’ve added your own touch to it. That’s why we encourage you to have fun with your drinks! Here are some ideas:

  • Add your favorite berries to the tea
  • Make ice cubes out of the tea so you always have some on hand
  • Use a little dried mint in the brew
