kamilleMidsummer may be an unusual time for praising herbal tea, but when I felt a bit under the weather yesterday, I prepared and drank my cup of chamomile tea with such profound pleasure that I want to share this with you.

I love herbal teas. My all-time favorite is wild berries, which I like to drink in winter – hot – as often as in summer – cold. I am almost equally fond of fennel tea, which I got used to while my sister and sister-in-law were nursing and adopted instantly. And while many people despise chamomile tea, because it reminds them of being sick, I love it because when I drink it, it means I am cossetting myself a bit.

What are your favorite sorts of herbal tea?
