Hi Sandy!
Chamomile tea is made from the flowers. If using fresh flowers use 1 tablespoon, if dried use 1 teaspoon. I use a tea ball but you can also use them loose. Warm up your teacup with boiling water and pour out the water. Place your herbs in the cup and pour boiling water over them. Allow to steep for 1 to 5 minutes depending on your strength preference. Discard herbs. Sweeten, if desired, with a little sugar or honey.

Personally, I don't like chamomile tea. But I LOVE mint teas! And lemon balm...and anise...and sage...and rosemary...

I just tried rosemary tea for the first time recently. I loved it! I think I'll go make a cup now for my headache.:)
