Chrysanthemum flowers are naturally caffeine-free and brew a delightfully delicate, light tea with a floral aroma. Traditionally steeped for multiple infusions, chrysanthemum goes well with the addition of sugar. This tea is refreshing, with a natural sweetness, and is reminiscent of Chamomile tea due to the fact that both flowers hail from the same family, and thanks to its extremely low caffeine content can be drunk at any time.
Let's make a perfect cup of tea:
To make the perfect cup, allow boiling water to cool a little (the recommended temperature is between 190F and 205F (87-96C)) and pour it into a cup and drop in 2-5 flowers. To sweeten the chrysanthemum flower tea, add a little rock sugar, float 1-2 dried chrysanthemum flowers in the cup itself. This amount of chrysanthemum flower tea will make 3-5 cups of tea; simply top with hot water.
