From Tea Valley

Harvest when the flower is only partially bloomed, the Tia Ju Wang is one of the most excellent chrysanthemum teas available. Made with only the finest Hangzhou white chrysanthemum flowers, the tea’s fresh and sweet aroma never fails to elicit an “Mmmm” reaction. When brewed, the chrysanthemum flowers produce a light-bodied tea that is vibrant yellow in color. The tea has a honey-like sweetness and a heaven-like fragrance. This tea finishes with a delicious aftertaste.

Graceful and pure, you will find this tea incredibly refreshing. Superior all around, the Hangzhou Tai Ju Wang is a truly a king among all chrysanthemum teas.

This one wanted to start smelling like Chamomile and switching gears into something much more pleasing to my nose! YAY!

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one…after all I am looking at the dry mix and bye-golly…I’m going to drink flower buds! So…maybe I was thinking it was going to taste flower…maybe more like bitter flowers like rose or marigold or something but that wasn’t the case…

Honey-like sweetness is right! This is a pure delight! A lovely-sweet and almost honey-like after taste but more buttery, or slippery than others I have thought to be honey-like??? Perhaps. Maybe Buttery-Popcorn covered in honey!?! Not sure…but there is something more to the aftertaste than just honey-sweetness and sweet-floral notes and I just think it’s darling!

I’m glad you liked the Chrysanthemum. The tea is very pure and soothing. Certainly one of my personal favorites!

Everytime I drink Chrysanthemum tea, it brings back memories of the 3 months that I lived in Hong Kong.

Instead of being able to buy canned soda in machines there (it is available, but not overly abundant like here in the US), you could buy sweetened lemon black tea or chrysanthemum tea in a box (like the juice boxes with the attached mini straw you can get here that’s marketed for kids).

I can’t remember drinking loose leaf chrysanthemum tea, at least, not in a home. I’m sure I drank it in dim sum restaurants. Because of that, when I drank this today, I simply thought, ‘Yep, this is chrysanthemum’ — nothing surprising.

However, it is still really good, really unique. Flowery, honey, very sweet. A pleasing yellow liquor. It’s nice to have this in lieu of the ever present, ever popular chamomile, as it seems very similar in type, but wholly other in taste.

I recommend the tea, but I do have one minor qualm — while I like the tin it came in, the lid is clear (which, is cool in because you can see the loose leaf through it), and therefore lets a lot more light in, but more problematic is that the lid doesn’t snap shut. If it were to turn over, I’m afraid it could come off. Not that I fear the tin turning over, but it simply means it isn’t a strongly sealing lid.

I don’t know if it would be prohibitively expensive for Tea Valley to get tins that had lids that snap tight and keep out all air, but that would definitely feel higher quality and help the tea to last longer.

Other than that, it had the the kinds of flavors were what I expected, but actually, they tasted better!

Hey Shinobicha,

Thanks for the review and pointing out the issue about the tin. I understand your concern and I was a bit disappointed myself when we received this batch of tins from my supplier. We will address this in our next order of tins.

Chrysanthemum juicebox is the best! I still get them all the time in the states from the Chinese markets. I’m sure you know this already, but the chrysanthemum goes really well with pu’erhs or a dash of honey :)

You’re welcome!
It’s not really a big concern of mine, but I’m glad you will be able to address it next time!

Yes, I have found the juiceboxes once here, they were delicious. I didn’t know chrysanthemum went with pu-erh (though, honey makes a lot of sense), but that’s probably because I’ve never had pu-erh before. Someday I’ll try it, but it seems low on the list, since I"m not sure I’d like it.
