I buy Chamomile tea because the idea of drifting off into soporific abandon seems ideal. But face it, most Chamomile tea tastes like crap, so it sits in the cabinet for years. Well, now you have a use for it...it makes a great hair rinse.

I used it today, and my hair looks splendiferous.

Dont buy your herbs pre packaged.
The amount of actual 'herb' that is in them is a joke.

Buy it loose, bulk if possible

natural chamomile tea tastes wonderful.
Especially if you brew it with Linden

I'm using the Chamomile from the company I work for. They sent a less than stellar batch-- normally it's worthy of the Gods, but for some reason, as is common with a lot of Chamomile, it smells rancid.

This tea is loose. It looks gorgeous, probably because there is green around the buds, which is maybe why it tastes bad? Usually, the loose stuff is all yellow buds. Anyway, it won't go to waste. I can give some to friends to try it on their hair as well.

I am going to be so popular.

The green should be removed, it makes the tea bitter. Has your company switched suppliers. I've noticed the Chinese product is not as "clean" as American and European. No problem for the hair though.

I agree, the green is the culprit. Boy o boy, it looks pretty with the yellow flowers, though. In this case, it doesn't make it bitter, it smells more like Butterscotch gone rancid and the taste is downright funky.

I'm wondering if the tea has to dry out on it's own? Doesn't seem as if this will improve this batch-- once it's gone bad, that's it, kind of like the particulars of wine making. Maybe it has something to do their timing when harvesting it.

Green tea with a biscotti? You may as well just have a cup of this rancid Chamomile.

Hmm, I grew chamomile (aha, Matrcaria recutita) my yard back in Venice. Wonder if it would make it here. I seem to remember it grows as a pretty fast groundcover. Aha again, on looking it up, I see I didn't grow that but Chamaemelum nobile/aka Anthemis nobilis. Live and learn, yet again.
