Grown on the slopes of Huang Shan/Yellow Mountains, this is amongst the most delicate and nuanced herbal teas China has to offer. Chrysanthemum can clear our internal heat and support our liver, lungs and eyesight. It can ease symptoms of a summer cold, fever, dry mouth and headache.
You would boil the water first, then add the hot water to the flowers and steep for a few minutes (around 3-5 min). However, some Chrysanthemum tea lovers recommend steeping the tea in water that is below boiling temperature anywhere from 90-100°F. (Boiling water is 212°F). You can always experiment to find out what you like best.
