The word chamomile comes from the Greek chamaimelon meaning "earth-apple", which is derived from chamai meaning "on the ground" and melon meaning "apple". It is so called because of the apple-like scent of the plant. For centuries, chamomile has been used in traditional medicine as a calming herb and for soothing digestive problems. With a yellow-gold infusion and a charac teristic flora fragrance, our DEAN & DELUCA Chamomile Tea posseses a sweet fruity and honey taste. To prepare, simply use 1C hot water per teabag and let steep for 5 minutes before drinking.
