You see, when I was young, I would frequently have chrysanthemum tea with my meals. It became a sort of staple for my meals, and was a fun thing to look forward too during the day. I loved the tea, it was so amazingly delicious. What I find funny, though, is that I didn't actually know that it was flowers.
Chrysanthemum tea is non-caffeinated, and is sweetened to enhance it’s nice, soft flavour. What makes this tea so special is that the sweet, non-caffeinated taste works whether it is served hot or cold. So it can work for many meals, and is good to drink whether it is hot or cold outside.
Want another amazing fact? According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, chrysanthemum tea has many different health benefits. One of those medicinal benefits includes “cooling” your body. So this is a great drink to have when you have been eating too many “hot” foods, such as deep fried or barbecued foods.
Chrysanthemum tea, a premium tea, comes directly from a Northern Thai tea garden. At the farm, they only produce it about once a year. As I know the owner of the tea garden, and am quite close to them, I can say safely that they are incredibly nice. All of the flowers that he selects for us are the best of the best.
Enjoy the pictures of both the flower and the farm.
