A herb from the Nile...
Our modern English word "chamomile" comes from the Greek word, "chamaimelon" meaning "earth apple". A fitting name, because Sydney Tea's chamomile certainly is reminiscent of the sweet, subtly brisk and refreshing flavor of apples and then some! Sydney Tea's chamomile is much more than just refreshing, it is produced from Egyptian chamomile. Certified organic Egyptian chamomile. Egypt produces some of the finest chamomile in the world and it has long had a spiritual and medicinal role in Egyptian society. In the Nile delta, chamomile was attested to back in 1550 BC in the Ebers Papyrus, an antiquated codex that mentions some of chamomile's health and spiritual benefits. In ancient Egypt, this wonderful herb was used as an offering to the gods, was used in embalming rituals and practices and was also used medicinally. Gods, humans and the dead all enjoyed the benefits, aroma, flavor and effects of chamomile? Talk about a popular herb!
