I wasn’t sure exactly what to categorize this as when I added the tea to the database … it’s not exactly an herb, is it? It’s not a camellia sinensis tea. So, I put “flowering” even though that’s not exactly right either. Oh well … if someone decides they don’t like it … they can change it.
I like this. I have had fewer than a handful of teas/tisanes that are solely chrysanthemum flowers like this, but, I like the soft, pollen-y, floral taste of a flower tea like this one.
It is sweet and almost honey-like. There are some “herbaceous” flavors to this. This tastes more like … say a chamomile tea than it does a rosebud tea. However, I’d much prefer to sip on a Chrysanthemum tea like this than a chamomile tea!
