With cold season upon us, we created this nighttime ritual, when we are winding down after a long day and heading to our couch. This herbal tea latte is a simple mix of chamomile tea, steamed milk (we sweetened it with honey) and finished off with the beloved cinnamon. This nighttime tea is the coziest way to treat yourself on a cold night.
The humble chamomile is known around the world for its varied beneficial characteristics: it has important antiseptic properties, relieves stomach ailments, soothes cold symptoms, and calms both the body and mind for restful sleep. Its name is derived from the Greek word meaning “earth apple” because of the characteristic apple aroma that it exudes when it blooms in the spring – thanks to this unique scent, we can often tell that chamomile is around before we even see it.
