1 bunch of fresh chamomile
1 cup of sugar
2 cups of water
TEA: Give the chamomile a good rinse. Place half of the chamomile flowers into a container with water. Allow to steep in the sun for the afternoon. Serve over ice.
SYRUP: In a sauce pan heat 2 cups of water and 1 cup of sugar. Once the water comes to a boil and the sugar is evaporated turn off heat and add the remaining chamomile. Allow to steep into the simple syrup until cool. Remove flowers once the syrup has infused (about an hour). This syrup is delicious and can be used in a variety of ways. Pour sun tea over ice, finish with the chamomile syrup. Very light, sweet and subtle. A delicious summer drink.
