Wild Chrysantemum Buds

 Floral and refreshing with a hint of bitterness       

Chrysanthemum tea is a flower-based tisane made from chrysanthemum flowers of the species Chrysanthemum morifolium or Chrysanthemum indicum, which are most popular in East Asia. In China, chrysanthemum is seen as a kind of "cooling herbs" and chrysanthemum bud is thought to have the best medical and pharmaceutical effect. Research has shown that chrysanthemum is very rich in vitamin A, which is good for eyesight and for the nerves around the eyes. A famous ancient book of Chinese traditional medicine, "Ben Chao Gang Mu", mentioned chrysanthemum is good for helping swollen pain, skin rashes and cooling the liver. Traditional Chinese physicians believed chrysanthemum was good at “qing gan ming mu” which means “clean your liver and impove your eyesight.”

Chrysanthemum buds have no caffeine and can be consumed at any time of the day without disrupting your sleep. Chrysanthemum buds have cooling properties to help inflammation, especially for the respiratory system. The wild Chrysanthemum buds were produced entirely from young buds of chrysanthemum flowers growing wildly in the Huangshan Mountains, Anhui province.
