Jiangxi, a southeast Chinese province across from HK, known for its pastoral landscapes of rice paddies, rivers, and mountains, centered on the Gan River valley.
Chrysanthemum originated a thousand years ago in the Song Dynasty (year 960–1279) in China. Chrysanthemum flowers come in many varieties, but the one we offer is a particular varietal called ROYAL CHRYSANTHEMUM as it was gifted to the Royal family at the time.
The dried flower in the package seems small enough, but once in boiling hot water for a few minutes, it blooms into something so magical and beautiful. You can tell the care went into hand picking a delicate flower as all the tiny petals are still intact! So so beautiful, aromatic and nourishing!
Chrysanthemum tea has SO many health benefits, especially for clearing heat in TCM, and I am always looking for a good quality flower. The traditional Chinese tea shops, even in Hong Kong, sell a very off-white/gray tiny bud flower tea that has a sulfite smell and clogs tea strainers. The flowers that came in my assorted set from the-qi.com were actually perfect. They didn't break apart as easily as other chrysanthemums I've had, and they are such a vibrant yellow. The taste and smell is very light and delicate, not strong at all. Blue lotus apparently takes some getting used to (or addition of juices or sweeteners) but this one makes an easy and relaxing cup of tea. I wish it weren't so expensive, but the ability to brew multiple cups helps.
It is absolutely delicious (and beautiful!)
I keep a few chrysanthemum flower tea packets in my desks for those days that are extra crazy. It's been a great way to make a moment to reset
