- Equally, well known are the medicinal benefits of chamomile, which include sleep-promoting properties, relaxing muscles and soothing anxiety.
how does it taste?
A beautiful yellow cup which gives way to a sweet, surprisingly juicy flavour of chamomile.
good if you're feeling
unable to switch off
- You may have noticed most other chamomile teas are made from dusty little bits – this is the crushed flowers, which, in our view, is a plain nasty thing to do
- One cup of this will calm any incessant mind-whirring, especially if you put your feet up whilst someone else makes it for you.
our whole leaf temples are better than the dust in your regular tea bag!

how we like it
Pure - nothing added, a soothing infusion perfect in fancy glass cup (link to glass cup and saucer).
Just cover one tea temple with boiling water and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water. Sweeten with honey.
Nick and Louise started teapigs in November 2006. They met whilst working for a really big tea company, where they learned all about tea and drank lots of it. And the more they learned, and the more they drank, the more they came to realise something: that there's a whole world of quality teas out there that simply aren't getting the attention they deserve. And so teapigs was born.
Nick describes himself as a tea evangelist (although much nicer than those shouty ones on American TV). Louise, an experienced tea taster who has travelled the world tasting teas, is a self-confessed tea addict (not seeking rehab).
Glorious pump alley, brentford is the home of teapigs, a tea company founded in November 2006. ‘no airs. no graces. just fine tea’ sums up the teapigs world.
teapigs offer a range of top-notch quality teas and infusions with absolutely no nasties! Everything from amazing black tea to the most chocolatey, chocolate tea, herbal infusions, full flavour fruits & leaves and super power matcha green tea.

Very Calming Product
These Chamomile flowers are really nice to drink. They are calming and help with sleeping. I was introduced to them at Christams and have enjoyed them since.
