Does anyone have any tips for drying chamomile for tea?
Hardiness Zone: 5a

Once you have the harvest, find a very warm area in your house or garage. Closets make a good choice. Make sure there is no moisture present and keep the chamomile out of sunlight. Any herb will turn moldy if these conditions are present. Dry, dark and hot is what you want. Check on the drying process frequently.
I tie mine up in an old pillow case. Hang it up somewhere for a couple of weeks. I have also heard of drying it in the microwave, but have never tried it.
