Floral with a long lingering finish, these luxury chrysanthemum blossoms come from Fujian Province in China.
Naturally caffeine free and full of health benefits.
- Use freshly boiled water at between 90 and 100 degrees heat.
- Rinse out the teacup or pot with the hot water to warm.
- Allow 4 to 5 flowers per cup.
- Allow to brew for two to four minutes. The longer the buds are left in the stronger the colour and flavour will be.
- The Chinese traditionally add rock sugar and wolfberries (Goji berries) to their tea. You could also sweeten with a small amount of honey.
- The tea can be served hot or cold.
- In China, freshly boiled water (again allowed to cool slightly to 90-95 degrees) is added again to the used tea ingredients to make a weaker tea. This is then repeated through the day.
