Yay! I'm so happy to get started on this! This wasn't my first time making a chamomile infusion and this time I took the advice from the link posted and added orange peel and a broken cinnamon stick in the hopes that it would improve the taste. It actually did improve the taste quite a lot. I know that some people like the taste of chamomile but I am not one of those people. So, I weighed 1 ounce of dried chamomile flowers and added the peel and broken cinnamon stick. Then I filled the rest of the quart jar with boiling water. 8 hours later I strained it, stuck a label on it, poured myself a glass and put the rest in the fridge. It tastes pretty good.
