Best Chamomile Tea Brands

Chamomile is a traditional and very popular herbal tea so it’s no wonder that many tea companies offer some sort of chamomile tea.

The quality of the product depends on the grade of plants used and harvesting and processing methods of the chamomile flowers. Other important factor is how long it takes to bring the product available for the customers after harvesting, and how it is packaged to ensure the freshness.

I prefer organic when possible, and most products introduced here are certified 100% organic. However, I have also included a few other options as well.

The brands I mention here are capable of consistently delivering high-quality products with an emphasis on sustainability and use of natural ingredients.

Let me introduce my favorite chamomile teas:

Pure Organic Chamomile in Tea Bags

Buying chamomile tea in bags provides an easy option of brewing a cup of this tasty floral tea. There are dozens of brands that offer good options and I have tried many of them. I chose one over the others based on taste, overall quality, and price.

Traditional Medicinals Organic Chamomile Tea

Traditional Medicinals is a California based company founded by herbalist Rosemary Gladstar and community activist Drake Sadler. The company emphasizes an ethical sourcing model which includes promoting organic agriculture and investing in the well being of farmers. Their products are known for excellent quality and they are continuously tested by plant scientists.

Traditional Medicinals chamomile tea comes in 6 boxes, each containing 16 sealed tea bags. I think these are the highest quality chamomile tea bags available. The teabags have a fresh floral scent when opened, and they produce a delicious tasting chamomile tea!

Pure Chamomile Loose Leaf Tea

Loose leaf chamomile is the choice of a true tea connoisseur. The larger pieces of chamomile flowers retain their integrity and aroma better than the smaller pieces typically used for teabags.

Also, if you are specifically looking to get the health benefits from chamomile, buying a high-quality loose leaf tea is the best option, because it allows you to easily achieve a stronger brew with more active compounds.

Harney & Sons Chamomile Tea

Harney & Sons is a US-based family company founded in 1983 by John Harney. Today they offer over 300 varieties of high-quality teas served even in some of London’s finest hotels, such as The Dorchester.

The Chamomile Tea from Harney & Sons is of superior quality and the price for 1 pound is also very affordable. When you open the resealable bag an incredibly delicious aroma is released. And when brewed, this exquisite tea has a nice and mellow taste with some fruity notes. It is my favorite pure chamomile tea!

My Favorite Chamomile Tea Blends

Mixing chamomile with other herbs provides us with blends that offer even more health benefits and interesting taste combinations. There are a lot of great herbal tea blends that contain chamomile and below I will introduce my personal favorites.

The Tea Company Rose Chamomile Lavender Tea

The Tea Company is a small company based in the US and dedicated to providing the freshest loose leaf tea blends that are good for health. They use only organic ingredients and their teas are blended in small batches to ensure the best possible quality.

This incredibly tasty blend consists of chamomile and lavender flowers, rose petals, and rose hips. All organic, of course.

In addition to being delicious, this truly is a healthy herbal blend. It is good for relaxing and inducing sleep and provides many other health benefits as well. If I would have to choose one tea blend with chamomile, this is it!

Tea Forte Chamomile Citron Tea

Tea Forte focuses on both the quality and presentation of their teas. They offer handcrafted luxury tea blends in elegant packages. Their packaging has even won several awards, including the award for their loose leaf tea canister in 2010.

The Chamomile Citron tea from Tea Forte is an organic blend of chamomile, rosehips, lemongrass, hibiscus, lemon verbena, and licorice. This loose leaf tea comes in the award-winning recyclable aluminum canister. The tea is a bit expensive considering there is only enough for 35-50 cups in the container, but it’s so delicious that it’s worth every penny!

JusTea Chamomile Cleanse Tea

JusTea is based in Vancouver, Canada, and works closely with Kenyan farmers to provide sustainable employment and better wages for the farmers. Their teas are produced in small batches and are organic.

JusTea aims to provide its customers with the freshest and tastiest teas possible by bringing them directly from farmers to consumers. All of their products are free of pesticides and chemicals.

This 100% organic Chamomile Cleanse tea consists of chamomile blossoms, lemongrass, and licorice root. The lemongrass is handpicked by Kenyan women’s coop. This tea tastes fresh and sweet and it comes in a nice-looking container that includes a hand-carved teaspoon.

Smith Teamaker Blend No. 67 Meadow

Smith Teamaker is a company founded by Steven Smith in 2009. All the teas are made by hand in small batches under his own roof in the old blacksmith’s shop in Oregon.

Blend No. 67 is made of chamomile flowers blended with hyssop and rose petals with a hint of rooibos. The box has 15 individually wrapped tea bags with a large cut herbal blend of excellent quality. This is my favorite chamomile blend you can get in tea bags!

Buddha Teas Calm Buddha Blend

Buddha Teas founder John Boyd grew up in the U.K. and was immersed in the culture of tea early on. Later he moved to the US and got an idea of launching a tea company focused on healthy, sustainably sourced teas.

The Calm Buddha Tea is another excellent blend that includes chamomile and comes in teabags. This blend tastes great and is designed for a relaxing effect, and it works.

The ingredients of the blend are very interesting: chamomile, skullcap, lavender, and St. John’s wort with spearmint, kava kava, and a bit of cinnamon. It is an excellent healthy alternative for a nightcap!

Enjoy Your Chamomile Tea!

Chamomile is one of my favorite herbal teas, especially in the evening before going to bed.

Sometimes it’s nice to have just pure chamomile tea, other times I like to have a tasty blend of chamomile with other herbs. Both options will definitely make you feel more relaxed and help with falling asleep and having better sleep quality.

Now that I have introduced my favorite chamomile tea brands and products, you can choose the ones that you like best and try them out.

Enjoy your cup of tea and relax, so that you can rest and be ready for tomorrow’s activities!

  3. Hi, Joonas.

    Thank you for all the details on Chamomile tea. Your article taught me a couple of new things. And the explanation in the YouTube video was very descriptive and detailed. I was surprised to know that chamomile tea is sleep-inducing. So far, I assumed that all kinds of teas contain caffeine, and it is better to avoid them at night. Well. I was wrong.

    I am a coffee addict, drinking it in the morning and afternoon. Considering all the benefits you pointed out, I ‘d better consider drinking Chamomile tea at night. Thank you for sharing the great info.

      Good to hear that you learned something new from my article. Yes, chamomile tea is great before bedtime.

      If you want to lessen drinking coffee, may I recommend trying yerba mate tea? It gives you energy because it contains caffeine, you can read more here. And it is also healthier than coffee: https://yerbamateculture.com/yerba-mate-tea-health-benefits/
      It might take awhile to get used to the taste though…

      I was drinking a bit too much coffee and was able to lessen it with yerba mate. I still enjoy having a nice cup of Arabica coffee every once in a while, but not like 5 cups a day anymore.

      Regards,
      Joonas

    • Chamomile tea is known especially for its relaxing and sleep-inducing properties. It also has many other health benefits like strengthening your immune system. Passionflower tea has a calming effect and helps with indigestion. So the health benefits are a bit similar but not quite the same.
