The Benefits of Loose Leaf Chamomile
It has been used for centuries for its antioxidant properties and other potential health benefits such as digestive aid, menstrual pain relief, weight management, skin health and much more. It's a soothing and comforting beverage that's popular for its mild, floral flavour. Here at Teavision, our chamomile flowers are sourced from Egypt; and whether they're used as a loose leaf chamomile tea or secured in chamomile tea bags, their crisp apple finish provides a warming effect that aids relaxation and sleep.
Why Choose Wholesale Chamomile?
This type of tea online consists of whole, dried chamomile flowers or larger chamomile pieces. Due to this, it is generally considered to be of higher quality, and this can result in a fresher and more flavourful brew. Using loose leaves to make chamomile tea provides a more customisable experience as you have control over the amount of chamomile used.
Wholesale chamomile may offer a richer and more nuanced flavour, as the whole flowers can release their oils and aroma more effectively during brewing.
Why Choose Chamomile Tea Bags
Chamomile tea bags contain finely ground chamomile flowers, often in the form of small cuttings or fannings. The chamomile is pre-packaged within a tea bag providing convenience and quick use, making them a popular choice for on-the-go or when you want a simple and fuss-free cup of detox tea. Just like the loose-leafed tea, the teabagsproduce a pleasant chamomile flavour and aroma and offer the soothing experience required from chamomile.
It's got a very particular image, chamomile tea. The old cliché about bone china and your little finger in the air as you sip it. But that is an old-fashioned notion left over from the days when all there was on the shelves was English Breakfast and, er, plain old tea. Plus a packet of chamomile just to be fancy.
The Height of Sophistication: Chamomile Flowers and Chamomile Leaves
You have probably seen it without the h, too. We pronounce it camomile so why not spell it like that too? None of that matters. Chamomile leaves and/or chamomile flowers produce a fascinating, rich tea that does make you feel kind of sophisticated. The name comes from the Greek for ground apple, and if you can detect that in the flavour, then good for you. As with all teas, there are a number of things going on on your tastebuds, and the flavour is hard to describe, but floral and with fruity undertones gives a pretty useful - if vague - idea of what you're getting.
Long ago, chamomile leaves and chamomile flowers were used in herbal medicine for anything from hay fever to menstrual problems, insomnia and rheumatism. No doubt someone thought it would be a good thing to drink it for pleasure as well, because it smelled so good, and when the flavour turned out to be a winner too, chamomile entered a new phase in its popularity.
