    Delightful! The scent and taste of my childhood. Beautiful buttery yellow flowers, that smell of hay. Love the light sunny freshness of the brew, fruity, floral and very juicy. Extremely refreshing!

    The tea has a slight flavor of chamomile, but with a green medicinal note. The flavor is slightly mineraly, but very pleasing.

    Very light taste with a weird aftertaste that I can't describe, it does have a cooling effect at the end and I like it!

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

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.
