Recent Tasting Notes
I was at a Chinese market today with some friends and I needed something to drink. This caught my eye and it was cheap so I picked up a can. I’ve never had chrysanthemum tea before. although I’ve grown the flowers and I know that it’s used a fair bit in eastern medicine.
I can’t say I was super impressed, but that might be because of the cane sugar. The drink was a touch too sweet and it managed to dominate the flavour unfortunately. It does have an interesting herbal/floral taste that slightly resembles the way the flowers smell, which makes sense I suppose. Still it’s not anything I’d run out to buy again.
Steeped Tea Smell: Chrysanthemum
Flavor: strong cane sugar, Chrysanthemum, sugar
Aftertaste: cane sugar
It is hard to describe, if you have never had chrysanthemum
I would have liked a bit less sugar, but was happy it was real sugar
