Tasting Notes: Light gold liquor with sweet floral and herbaceous notes finished with white pepper.
Chrysanthemum (common name: mums) are not only beautiful, they're delicious - and nutritious! To make Chrysanthemum Tea, full chrysanthemum flowers are infused in hot water. This releases the antioxidants, organic compounds, vitamins, and minerals in the flowers that help with heart and kidney function, among other benefits.
Chrysanthemum tea has been used in traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries to aid in preventing or shortening colds and other viruses, lowering blood pressure, treating bone diseases like osteoporosis, reducing inflammation, and promoting healthy heart function.
Like its relative Chamomile, Chrysanthemum Tea has also been used to reduce stress and anxiety and sooth skin conditions and inflammation.
Brewing Instructions for Chrysanthemum Tea:
We recommend using 1 gram (about 4 flowers) and 195° F water. Brew for 2 minutes and enjoy!
Ingredients: Chrysanthemum flowers
Herbal Infusions, blends that do not include the leaf of the camellia sinensis plant, can all be brewed just off the boil (around 205 degrees) for 3 to 6 minutes depending on your taste. Since they lack the naturally occuring tannin that tea has, there is more flexibility in brewing time and temperature.
What is Herbal Tea?
Herbal Infusions, sometimes called "tisanes" are exactly what they sound like, blended or singular herbs, fruits, and flowers designed to be brewed and enjoyed like tea but lacking the inclusion of the leaves of camellia sinensis, the tea plant. We, at Saratoga Tea & Honey Co., do not stand behind the chemical processes that are used to render away the natural caffeine in tea and instead choose to offer these naturally caffeine free (and naturally delicious) infusions as the alternative for those sensitive to caffeine or looking for something at the end of the day.
