Huang Ju Hua - Chrysanthemum morifolium

    Very delicate and floral taste. It is unusual, but delightful and subtle.

    Very light, fresh and floral. Works well combined with dark teas such as blacks and Puerhs. (A recipe that I liked was 3.7g of Ceylon (not Mei Leaf) mixed with 4 chrysanthemum pieces to 120ml 95).

    Warming, perfect before bed!

Chrysanthemum flowers produce a light, refreshing and zesty brew which is great by itself or mixed in with other tea. A classic combination is to throw a few flowers in with your ripened PuErh teas. The bright and floral sweetness plays perfectly with the bass note richness of the dark, ripened tea.

In Chinese medicine, Chrysanthemum (Ju Hua) is used to cool and calm those suffering from too much heat and impatience. We all have people in our lives who can get a little hot under the collar so sneak a little Chrysanthemum into their drink! It is great to reduce red eyes and inflammation if you have a cold or flu too.
