Lavender Chamomile Tea with Honey

These days, we all 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. In fact, this tea helps reduce stress by settling your nervous system and calming your digestive system. Even more, lavender promotes relaxation and chamomile eases tension and supports digestion. Steeped in flavor, this recipe is not too sweet and not too bitter.

First, here’s a little bit about the history of iced tea. Indeed, 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.

Above all, we like to use our Blueberry Honey for this recipe. Also, using berries as a garnish gives a little surprise to the end of your drink-drop a few blueberries or raspberries on top of the ice. On the other hand, if you aren’t a fan of iced tea (or if it’s cold outside), you can definitely brew this tea and drink it hot!

Adapting our Tea Recipe

You know, a recipe is not truly perfect until you’ve added your own touch to it. With this in mind, we encourage you to have fun with your drinks! So, here are some ideas to make this drink just the way you like it:

  • Mix in your favorite fresh herbs to the brew
  • Add your favorite berries to the tea
  • Make ice cubes out of the tea so you always have some on hand
