It is hard to believe that no one else has reviewed this yet.
This is alright, but nothing that blows my socks off either. It is slightly sweet and floral but it is a little pricey for what you get. It is very pretty in my clear mug and infuser.

Looking for a new way to say it with flowers? Popular in China since the Song Dynasty, chrysanthemum tea is a time-honoured drink that tastes just as beautiful as it looks. And unlike a traditional bouquet, these little gems actually get better the longer they stay in water. They make for a refreshing tisane that’s delicately floral with a hint of honey. Try it hot or iced with a drop of agave to bring out their natural sweetness.

Thanks to Janelle for a sample of this tea! Another tea where I really have no idea what to expect, just a hope that it’s not completely like chamomile, haha.
And it’s not. But oh, is it WEIRD. And not entirely pleasant. There’s almost… a metallic taste to it. I did use a metal infuser basket since I was concerned the Finum would get all gross like it does with chamomile, but it must be a flavour from the tea itself, because I’ve never had an infuser impart flavours to a tea like this. So… doesn’t taste like chamomile, but does taste like metal has been leached into the water. I’m really not finding this good at all… O.o Dumping time. (Oh man, I just burped and it tasted like this tea/metal. I am so grossed out right now, you have no idea.)
ETA: If you can get past the metal association, this might be a reasonable tea. But it’s quite distinct, and making me gag, so it’s a big no-go.
