drank Chrysanthemum Tea by Unknown
10 tasting notes

My mom likes making this to fight something the Chinese call inflammation, translated literally it’s ‘going up in flames’. The body has a balance of five different elements, and certain foods (often spicy or fried) raises the fire element and upsets the system. Chrysanthemum is supposed to be a ‘cooling’ plant. I’m not sure how much scientific backing is in this, but I do know that homemade chrysanthemum tea is delicious. ♥ It’s just the flower heads and water brewed over low heat for a long time, simple. I had a cup this morning, chilled and with a bit of rock sugar.
