Fancy a cup of happiness and health? Chrysanthemums are not only beautiful flowers with wonderful meanings (and a popular tea once enjoyed by Chinese royals), but they’re also amazing ingredients for healing the body. Some of these benefits include antioxidants for fighting against free radical damage, good sources of vitamins B & C, as well as anti-inflammatory effects to the body. And according to Traditional Chinese medicine, these flowers are also known as “coolants” which help lower body temperature in individuals prone to fever and heat strokes. Today, Chrysanthemum tea is enjoyed as a popular summer drink accompanying meals in Southern China (and perhaps you’ve also seen them packaged in small juice boxes to drink on the go)
- Taste: Light sweet floral with honey & herbal notes
Fun fact: Chrysanthemum flowers are difficult to over steep - which means you can steep them for as long as you’d like without worrying about the tea getting too bitter.More on chrysanthemum and recipe in our video:
