“Chamomile implies the existence of chamokilometer”

Chamomile tea has nothing to do with miles, but some people joke that the non-U.S. version is Chamokilometer tea.
       
“Cold night, English tea house. Ordered a chamomile, they brought me a chamokilometer. Said it was better and entire world less US drinks it” was posted on Twitter by Josh Conley on September 15, 2011. “The most popular tea in Europe is chamokilometer” was posted on Twitter by Michael sucks on October 24, 2014. “In Europe they drink chamokilometer tea before bed” was posted on Twitter by Kyle Crews on May 4, 2015. “What do they call Chamomile tea in Europe? Chamokilometer” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on January 28, 2022.

Wikipedia: Chamomile
Chamomile (American English) or camomile (British English; see spelling differences) (/ˈkæməmaɪl, -miːl/ KAM-ə-myl or KAM-ə-meel), is the common name for several daisy-like plants of the family Asteraceae. Two of the species, Matricaria recutita, and Anthemis nobilis are commonly used to make herbal infusions for beverages.

Not sure if this chamomile tea is working. Maybe it’s only a chamokilometer?

Visiting the U.K., I was surprised I couldn’t find my favorite tea anywhere. Asked the hotel’s concierge, “Haven’t you got any chamomile?”
He shook his head, “We have chamokilometer.”
