Chrysanthemum has some powerful health mojo: (www.bewellbuzz.com/wellness-buzz/10-health-benefits-chrysanthemum-tea/)

Tastewise, I’m not sure what to make of it. My first experience with chrysanthemum tea was a bagged version that tasted like stale dead flowers. This one from Shang Tea has a savory dried herb taste. I keep thinking it reminds me a little of unsalty chicken or beef boullion.

However, if the good-for-me aspect is really as good for me as I’m reading, I’m willing to keep experimenting!

So…what does chrysanthemum taste like to you? Do you sweeten?

Haven’t tried it yet, but plan to do so since it is reputed to be great for headaches and migraines.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
