Hi Everyone, Chrysanthemum Flower Tea is known as a refreshing and cooling Summer time drink, served either iced or hot, but I argue that it makes a wonderful year round tea, especially in January, after the excesses of the holidays. Did you see my last tea post, Heather Flower Tea?

Imagine sipping on a mug of this delicious tea as you are watching the snowflakes outside float through the air and fall the the ground. In your mug, floats pretty chrysanthemum flowers, reminding you of warmer months - a taste of Summer in the Winter!

I use bMAKER food grade, edible Chrysanthemum Flowers for this tutorial which I link to below.

Chrysanthemum Flower Tea

As quoted from the bMAKER package:

Floral and pleasant. Pairs well with green and black teas as well as cornflower, borage, chamomile in herbal tea blends. When making the tea, be sure to allow the herb to steep in hot water no more than 10 minutes in a closed vessel to preserve the essential oil.

In this tutorial, I just add it to the mugs with the chrysanthemum flowers but you can certainly steep them in a teapot as well to get the full effect.
