Summer Sun Tea

I occasionally get something in my CSA farm box that makes me wonder to myself...."What on earth am i going to do with this?". Yup, that is exactly what i thought when i saw the bouquet of mini daisies in my box. I thought that it was nice of them to give us flowers.....


Come to find out that they are chamomile flowers. They smell sweet and like honey. So i got to googling and somewhere came across the idea to make chamomile sun tea. Brilliant! Cause what else was i going to use them for. Then i had to wait nearly a week for a sunny day.

When it was all brewed and strained and sweetened up....it was the best chamomile tea i have ever had. I wonder what strange things i will get in my next box?

That's awesome! Your CSA is too cool. I'd love to try making my own chamomile tea sometime.

I love sun tea - never tried camomile. What fun to have new stuff from the farm!

sounds so refreshing and yummy!


My CSA introduced me to the wonders of bok choy. Think I could turn that into a tea- it's in the cabbage family ;)
