Baby Napiers Calming Chamomile My First Tea
A delicious, calming organic herbal tea for children once they are weaned onto solid foods
My First Tea contains only pure organically grown chamomile flowers that make a soothing and calming, relaxing herbal tea.
• Soothing for tummies
• Calming before bedtime
When you start reading stories at bedtime, you can also point out to your child that Peter Rabbit’s mother gave him Chamomile Tea to relax him when he’d had a stressful day in Mr McGregor’s garden!
Chamomile is a good introduction to herbal teas for children once they are weaned and taking solid foods. It can also be enjoyed by mum and all the family and is a great tasty alternative to squashes or sweet drinks.
Chamomile flowers can also be added to the bath water to make a soothing, natural and fragrant calming bath if baby's skin is a little irritated. Tie a small handful of flowers into a muslin bag or a loose weave hanky and tie under the hot tap as you run the water. (Always make sure the bath is not too hot for baby by testing the water temperature with your elbow.)
Many teas are sold in teabags these days. Our Napiers herbal teas are not and there are good reasons why not. A teabag only contains around 2 or 3 grams of very dry, finely chopped or powdered herbs. We believe that not chopping herbs into tiny pieces, which dries out their natural oils, helps to preserve their beneficial goodness.
We also like to vary the strength of our teas. We all come in different shapes, states or sizes, and so does our taste and need for a good cup of tea!
It’s very easy to use loose tea and doesn’t have to involve chopping down a tree to make the paper for a tea bag! Use a tea strainer or tea ball.
Compost loves loose too!

As the season changes there will be slight variation in the herbs, such as the colour, and the taste can vary slightly from harvest to harvest.
Put one teaspoon of the herb in a small teapot of boiling water. Allow to steep for 5-10 minutes. Strain and add honey to sweeten if desired.
Make sure that the tea is cool enough to drink by testing it yourself. Do not give tea that is too hot to your child. Give small amounts to your child in a bottle or feeding cup.
Our chamomile is grown on organic farms to certified organic standards. As the supply varies according to the season and availability, we use several farms with different certifying bodies which is why this pack does not carry the logo of a specific certifying body.
Chamomile is a member of a plant family called Asteraceae. This family also includes daisies, ragwort, lettuce, artichoke and sunflowers. People who are allergic to Asteraceae plants may also be allergic to chamomile. If you, your family or your baby have allergies, asthma or hayfever it is best to avoid chamomile. If in doubt, please talk to your health visitor or to a healthcare practitioner.
Always make sure that you keep hot liquids away from children to avoid accidental spills that might burn their sensitive skin.STORAGE
Keep in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children.
