I grew a few boxes of chamoille (for tea) (sorry for spelling). Can
anyone tell me the best way to use it. Do you just pick the leaves and
put them in a tea strainer? Do I put the whole stem in as it seems to
be be one long plant.
Anyone dry them?
Thanks in advance..
Usually you pick chamomile flowers, but the leaf has taste, too, even if not
Yes. Best done spread on a piece of cloth spread on a layer of newspapers, as
the yellow parts of the flowers are strongest, and they tend to disappear if
the plant is dried in bundles hanging upside-down.

Chamomile, presumably - you pick the little daisylike FLOWERS and dry them
and that is what is used for the tea, which is steeped by pouring boiling
water over them and leaving for five minutes, then strain and drink.
