Technically, the title should read, "Low Dose Chamomile Tea Ineffective as WSG Relaxer in Small Cohort of Young Males." My herbal medicine professor would tell you that you can't make a therapeutic dose of an infusion without at least 2 tea bags or 2 teaspoons of freshly dried chamomile. Personally, if you want a real test of Matricaria's ability to dull the endorphin response, go with a tincture-- the good stuff. ;-)

Alex drank 11 teabags' worth of camomile over that test, the last 6 teabags' worth made up as double-strength (two bags to one cup). Each cup was infused for 5 minutes. We did test fairly! Where would we get the tincture? Enough herbal medicine people have said "forget tea, get something stronger" that I'm curious to try it out.
