drank Chrysanthemum Tea Drink by Yeo's
1908 tasting notes

I was at a Chinese market today with some friends and I needed something to drink. This caught my eye and it was cheap so I picked up a can. I’ve never had chrysanthemum tea before. although I’ve grown the flowers and I know that it’s used a fair bit in eastern medicine.

I can’t say I was super impressed, but that might be because of the cane sugar. The drink was a touch too sweet and it managed to dominate the flavour unfortunately. It does have an interesting herbal/floral taste that slightly resembles the way the flowers smell, which makes sense I suppose. Still it’s not anything I’d run out to buy again.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
