Baking with Chamomile

Our best-selling Chamomile tea is back, and we're celebrating by using these whole flowers as a baking accessory during downtime.

To incorporate chamomile flowers into your baking, simply infuse them into existing ingredients (like butter, milk, etc.) and then strain them out. The result is a natural, delicate sweetness with floral notes that pairs well with cakes, cookies and pastries (and a cup of tea, naturally).

Some of our favorite chamomile recipes are below:
