Singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette has been making music since she was eight years old, becoming most famous for her 1996 hit album, Jagged Little Pill. According to at least one fan site, Morissette is also known to sing the praises of chamomile tea! The herbal tea (made from the flowers of a perennial in the Aster family) is Alanis’ favorite drink, but she also finds that it soothes her throat.
