In full bloom
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.

Ingredients: Chrysanthemum flowers

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.

The only chrysanthemum tea I ever tried tasted like … really dead flowers.


This one isn’t on the wall, is it? It’s just available in a canister?

Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet honey notes with a slightly pungent finish.

Liquor: Golden green clear.

Flavour: Sweet honey flavour with enjoyably pungent chrysanthemum notes – floral, sweet, clean and refreshing!

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.

That does not sound good….


It wasn’t. And actually, reading someone else’s post a bit later, it dawned on me what I meant – rust. It tasted like rust. Like well water with a lot of iron. But, doubtful that it’s the water given that it was the only tea of the four brewed up that had that flavour/aroma.


While I have not tasted the David’s Tea version, Chrysanthemum Flowers are an acquired taste. They are earthy. If you have more sample try adding sugar.


Chrysanthemum flowers are a completely different flavor profile than Chamomile for sure, but it should not taste like what you described :P They are very lightly sweet, but mostly medicinal and refreshing (not really camphor, but similar). I’m sorry you had to try something like what you described.


Hmm. Maybe I overleafed or something? It just tasted like a cup of rust/metal (plus other tea-ish flavours, but that was the predominant one). Sigh.


It could be, but by the sound of the it I would go with the possibility that they were just old or not stored properly (happened to my first bag), I have mine well sealed now and it still tastes and smells the way it is supposed to after a year and a half.


Or try 185-195 degrees, if you have some left. ;)


Well, improper storage is definitely a possibility. (Age less so, as they were only out from DT for a while.) They’ve been in a ziploc for a year. I do have some left, so maybe I’ll try the lower water temp too. Thanks for the suggestions!

I can see why some people wouldn’t care for this tea. It is very flowery and that is not for everyone. However, I enjoy this tea and I love the fact that you don;t have to worry about over-steeping it. Also, it looks really pretty brewing up in the infuser.
