Camomile & Lemongrass
An amazing combination of both looks and taste a stunningly bright and a sublimely balanced flavour.
Camomile literally meaning "earth-apple"
(referring to the apple-like scent of the flower).
"Light and flavourful lemon character tempered with hints of apple and Camomile."
The Roman legions would be prescribed camomile to treat stomach complaints and calm nerves. Today we have lots of evidence to support the claim that camomile possesses anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) properties and may have clinical applications in the treatment of stress and insomnia.
Native to warm temperate and tropical regions of the world, Lemongrass is a tall perennial grass its oil is used as a natural pesticide, and can be planted in domestic gardens to keep insects away, also as a preservative having antifungal properties. Despite its ability to repel insects, the oil is commonly used as a "lure" as the pheromone created by the honeybee's gland, in trapping swarms or attempting to draw the attention of hived bees.
Ancient eastern belief holds that Lemongrass possesses the power to induce psychic abilities, enabling people to read minds and have visions of the future. Current Eastern folk beliefs are of the most practical variety and maintain that the plant is effective for easing jet lag, indigestion and headaches.
On its own, Camomile produces a sweetish cup with notes of honey and subtle tones of fruit. Lemongrass which contains citronella produces a cup that is fresh and herbal with light touches of bitter lemon and lighter touches of orange. Together they produce a heavenly blend it's so refreshing and relaxing for lazy summer afternoons.
