This purple chrysanthemum is an extremely unique variety among the others chrysanthemums. It only grows up in one mountain in China, where it is located in Qiaoban village, Yanjia town, Chunan county, Zhejiang province, and whose altitude is around 1460 meters. This mountain is called Yu San Jian, which means the mountain’s shape is similar to an umbrella shape. So far, there is still no road directly to the tea farmers who make this tea. We need to stop at his village and then climb the mountain road for about 3 kilometers before reaching his house.

This purple chrysanthemum only pluck one time in mid of Oct and have a limited yield per year. The spotlights of this purple are:

i)pesticide free chrysanthemum, unlike any other Chinese chrysanthemum, it is wild-growing in the mountains, and it volatilizes some odor that can drive the worms or insects away.

From ancient time till now, chrysanthemum flowers have been used as a Chinese herbal teas, such as clearing away the body interior heat and toxic materials, quenching thirsts and anti-heat stroke in summer.
