Flowers make a delicious, fragrant tea
These flowers make a wonderful tea, nothing like you can buy in stores.
Never need to buy your bedtime tea again!
This is an amazing tea plant, flower, pollinator haven. I planted this once in my community garden and now I won't have to buy store chamomile for the rest of my life. This plant is so incredibly prolific that we get enough to satisfy the need for a family of two with sleeping difficulties with an entire year's supply of sleepytime tea!
The only thing you need in addition to one of these seed packets is a bulk food dehydrator.
