I planted the seeds in a pot (away from the deer!) and anxiously awaited the day when it would grow and blossom.
I was a little worried that those few blossoms would not be enough, but it brewed a beautifully coloured, strong scented tea.
I sat down to relax and took my first sip.
Not what I was expecting. It may have looked and smelled like chamomile tea, but it did not taste like it. It had a very grassy flavour with a strong, almost metallic, aftertaste. I took one more sip just to make sure….and then dumped the whole thing down the drain.
I’ll have to read more about growing chamomile before I attempt this one again. Hopefully my peppermint tea will do better!
