Sweet Dreams Fruit and Herb Tisane
the herbacious, honey-like flavor of chamomile shines in this tisane while apple and cinnamon play enticing supporting characters
An old favorite is back! Sweet Dreams Fruit and Herb Tisane is an antioxidant rich chamomile blend that features sweet apples and warm cinnamon. Plucky dried chamomile buds and petals are tossed with dried apples and pieces of cinnamon bark that creates a cup as tranquil as its name.
Although chamomile is a flowering herb that looks like a tiny daisy, it has the aroma of sweet apples when dried. Those dried flower heads possess a mellow, honey-like sweetness that yield this delicately floral herbal tisane.
The addition of dried apple pieces and warm cinnamon bits make this cup wonderfully soothing from the first, steamy sip to the final sweet finish.
Chamomile based tisanes are naturally caffeine-free, making Sweet Dreams a perfect cup to enjoy late in the day or just before bedtime. Chamomile is also widely believed to help reduce anxiety, sleeplessness, and stress.
In addition, the cinnamon bark included in this tisane contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that may be released into the cup.
Sweet Dreams Fruit and Herb Tisane can be enjoyed served hot or iced. This tisane is excellent served plain, but the addition of a sweetener brings out the apple flavor.
Milk may also be added to hot chamomile tea for a creamy flavor profile. Froth the milk first and dust with a bit of ground cinnamon to make a relaxing lattea.
Traditional Hot Tea
Measure one heaping teaspoon of tea leaves per one cup water into a tea filter or into an infuser of your choice. Keep in mind, the infuser you choose must be large enough to allow the tea leaves to swell and unfurl. This allows the tea leaves to release their full flavor. Place filter into teapot or mug. Bring filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil then pour into teapot or mug. Infuse 8-10 minutes. Remove the filter and discard or remove infuser and discard tea leaves. Garnish as desired with sugar, honey, sweetener and/or lemon slices.
Measure six heaping teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Bring 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil. Immediately pour boiled water over filter into teapot or heat-resistant pitcher. Infuse 8-10 minutes. Remove filter and sweeten tea with ½ cup sugar if desired. Add 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a serving pitcher. Pour in prepared tea and mix well. Add 2 cups ice and stir. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
It is not recommended to steep fruit and herb tisanes more than once.
