Harvesting Chamomile

Two weeks ago I harvested my chamomile plant to dry and turn into tea. When harvesting chamomile for tea, only pluck the blossoms from the plant. After carefully removing the blossoms from the stems, spread on a plate or cookie sheet and let dry. Once the blossoms are dry, store in a container to preserve the freshness of the tea.

To have fresh chamomile tea, place about 2 tablespoons of fresh blossoms into your teapot and let steep for several minutes.
