Chamomile produces a sweetish cup with notes of honey and subtle tones of fruit. Lemongrass, which contains citronella, produces a cup that is fresh and herbal with light touches of bitter lemon and even lighter touches of orange. Together, the cup they produce is a heavenly blend of the two. Light and flavorful lemon character tempered with spring fresh hints of apple and chamomile. Very refreshing! 

Stop for a moment and see if you can think of a tea that even sounds more relaxing than Chamomile Lemongrass. OK, at least one that is available legally. You can't. It simply doesn't exist. Besides sending you off to la-la land, chamomile and lemongrass have many other, uhm, powers, for lack of a better word.

Powers you ask? Yes. For example, the ancient Egyptians believed that chamomile possessed shamanistic powers and associated it with the sun god Ra. And, an ancient Greek doctor named Dioscorides who rode with Roman Emperor Nero's army, prescribed chamomile to treat gastrointestinal disorders and calm nerves. More recent beliefs maintain that chamomile aids digestion and may be beneficial as a natural remedy for insomnia.

And what of lemongrass? Well, ancient eastern belief holds that lemongrass possesses the power to induce psychic abilities, enabling people to read minds and have visions of the future. Like chamomile, current Eastern folk beliefs are of the more practical variety and maintain that the plant is effective for easing jet lag, indigestion and headaches. There you have it!
