Tea: Black tea is stimulating and Chamomile tea is calming. In general, tea can help w/mental focus and relax you. White tea, followed by green tea, is the most beneficial. Peace and good health.

Benefits of chamomil: Although best known as a muscle relaxant and antispasmodic, chamomile is also believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory capabilities. The plant's healing properties come from its daisylike flowers, which contain volatile oils (including bisabolol, bisabolol oxides a and b, and matricin) as well as flavonoids (particularly a compound called apinegin) and other therapeutic substances.

Tea effects: I don't know that any one has really measured the metabolism of constituents in chamomile; there are multiple ones that are probably active. If you're using this for a medicinal purpose (indigestion, relaxation, etc) you may make a strong tea & use it 3-4 times a day. It is safe unless you're allergic to compositae (the botanical family it belongs to.).
