I’ve grown a generic german chamomile in my garden for decades, letting it self sew and grow wherever it is or transplant to a more convenient spot. I harvest blossoms to include in my herb tea for me, and the plant to make a drench for the greenhouse to prevent damping off. It’s rather strong - don’t want to leave it to steep very long for drinking. But i’d never considered there being a better flavored option.
But last year i wanted to get some more chamomile growing in a different spot in my expanded orchard area so i bought some new seed (from Fedco) with a name of Bodegold. It grew well, nice plant. But the treat was when i dried the flowers for tea. It’s wonderful! I love just opening the jar and smelling the dried flowers. It reminds me of something but i can’t think what it is. Very pleasant. And the flavor is equally nice and pleasant. So much more refined you could say. Anyway, if you’re interested in a nice tea chamomile i can recommend Bodegold. Sue
