Can you add milk to chamomile tea?
Absolutely! While chamomile tea is traditionally consumed plain, it also pairs nicely with a splash of milk.
Adding a bit of milk gives it a creamier, smoother taste and texture. Additionally, while chamomile tea has some natural sweetness, adding a little sweetener can enhance its flavor.
That’s why many people choose to add a spoonful of honey or sugar to it.
In this post I’ll share with you my tricks to make a delicious chamomile milk tea that, although simple to make, it is one of my all-time favorite.
Chamomile tea caffeine content
Chamomile tea is made from dried chamomile flowers, which do not contain any caffeine.
Furthermore, some studies suggest that certain antioxidants present in chamomile may improve overall sleep quality.
Therefore, you can enjoy a cup of chamomile latte even at night without any worries!
Chamomile tea benefits
Chamomile has been appreciated since ancient times for its medicinal properties and research is backing up this claim.
Some studies suggest that drinking chamomile tea may offer benefits such as:
- providing antioxidants that may help lower inflammation and related diseases 
- promoting better digestion and protecting against some gastrointestinal conditions 
- improve blood sugar levels 
What you’ll need to make chamomile milk tea
While I haven’t had the pleasure of using fresh chamomile flowers, if you have some on hand, you can make tea with them as well.
Feel free to use your preferred type of milk.
I often use dairy for this chamomile milk tea, but I’ve also tried almond milk and the result was great as well.
Both chamomile tea and milk have a mellow, natural sweetness, so you can skip sweetening this tea latte.
However, adding some sweetener can enhance its flavor.
My favorite option is to use this homemade vanilla infused honey, but feel free to use any type of sweetener that you like, such as sugar or maple syrup.
Time needed: 10 minutes
