All About Chamomile Lemongrass Tea
The ancient Egyptians believed that Chamomile possessed shamanistic powers, and a Greek doctor Dioscorides prescribed Chamomile for gastrointestinal disorders and calm nerves. Modern-day beliefs maintain that Chamomile helps with digestion, insomnia, and many other diseases of modernity.
As for Lemongrass, traditional Eastern medicine believes it possesses the power to induce psychic abilities, such as reading minds or seeing the future. We're not sure about that, but it is known to help ease jet lag, indigestion, and headaches.
Together, this blend of Chamomile and Lemongrass produce a cup of tea with notes of honey, and subtle tones of citronella, lemon, and orange.
Sip it throughout your day, or right before bed to induce a feeling of calm serenity that people have enjoyed for thousands of years.

The tea smells and tastes delightful. I make myself a cup almost every night before I go to bed.
This tea has become a nightly ritual of mine and I've gone through it faster than any other tea I've ever ordered.
It's a nice light, tasty flavor that helps me relax and works well when I'm craving something other than tea or water. Mixes well with honey too when I need a sweet treat.
