Goodness of Chamomile (aka Camomile) Tea

Recently, as a change from drinking Vietnamese jasmine tea, Japanese tea and Green tea, I thought I'd like to try Chamomile tea. Yesterday, after my "healthy" lunch of deep-fried chips (😅) and spicy, chargrilled chicken, I wanted a tea that would get rid of the oily after taste in my mouth. I rummaged through my kitchen drawers and found a box of Chamomile tea.

I was pleasantly surprised by the faintly-sweet aroma and the effects on my sleep during the night. For the first time in a long time, I had an uninterrupted 7 hours of sleep. I felt rejuvenated and alert as I got up at 5:30am to start my meditation. I found myself humming "Ständchen" while preparing breakfast and packing lunches for my children for school. Wow! This is really something ... so I did some research and found some interesting facts about the effects of Chamomile tea that I'd like to share with you.
