Can you add milk to chamomile tea?

adding 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 [1]
  • promoting better digestion and protecting against some gastrointestinal conditions [2]
  • improve blood sugar levels [3]

Ingredient alternatives

This is an overview of the ingredients and steps. For the exact measurements and instructions, check recipe card bellow.

Chamomile tea

You can prepare chamomile tea using chamomile tea bags or loose dried flowers.

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.

    Once your chamomile tea is ready, remove the flowers (if using loose tea, you can strain them; if using a tea bag, simply remove it).
    Next, add the milk.
    If you’d like, you can even froth the milk while the tea is steeping to give it a creamier, smoother texture. Frothing the milk can even make the milk taste sweeter!Adding a splash of milk to chamomile tea

Chamomile Tea Latte Variations

Spice up your chamomile tea latte

Chamomile tea gets often underrated, many people consider chamomile tea to be a “boring” beverage, but it blends wonderfully with many different ingredients!

You can create delightful variations to your latte by adding various ingredients.

For instance, you can have fun experimenting with spices and other herbal teas for more flavor:

  • Steep with some crushed nutmeg or cloves to add some depth and warmth
  • Decorate with some ground cinnamon
  • Add some lavender tea or rose petals for a flower latte

Vegan chamomile latte

You can also try using different types of milk.

Almond milk, soy milk, and oat milk are all great alternatives to cow’s milk that can change the texture and flavor of the latte.

Personally, I enjoy the nutty flavor of almond milk, but feel free to explore and see what you like best.

Extra creamy chamomile latte

Get a richer and creamier chamomile latte by simmering the chamomile tea in milk for around 5 minutes.
